Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Located in the heart of Pelican, The Red Piano Bar is unquestionably on the St Maarten bucket list. Welcoming piano players from all around the world, this amazing venue has live music 7 days a week. Every Monday night, tourists, residents, the young and the less young come together to see the legendary band "Church on Monday" and witness St Maarten's most talented artists. Voted #1 local band in St Maarten five years in a row, Church on Monday never fails to impress. Furthermore, this spot certainly has a drink for every taste bud, from the island classics like the Red Piano Rum Punch to the inevitable Espresso Martini. The Red Piano's friendly bartenders will make you feel like family as soon as you walk through the door, and after a few drinks, they may even let you know all of their island secrets... The Red Piano bar has the widest liquor choice on the island with over 300 bottles on its shelves, from extra old rum, single malt whiskey to fine cognac and champagne. Come early for quiet after dinner cocktail, melt in the cozy decor, enjoy the jazzy piano vibes and you will surely end up staying until the craziness begins! If you're lucky enough, you might even get to dance on the piano until the wee hours of the morning... Don't forget to visit the brand new boutique on your way out and bring back a piece of your Red Piano memory with you! The Red Piano is open from 7pm until 3am, 365 days a year, and now is the first smoke-free Piano Bar/Nightclub on St Maarten.

Want to have a great evening - go to the Red Piano Bar on Bill Folly Road.. Had a great time and for the month of May 2014 the music will be awesome... Alan Shepherd from Barbados will be playing and its party time... Great music, great bartenders - loved it.

“If only I knew it was a cigar bar....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Ok, so the music is great!! The only problem, which for my group was a big problem, is that they allow smoking. This was a HUGE turn off for my group and several other groups I saw come and go. It was a smoke-filled bar with no apparent ventilation system....it reaked. The drinks are delicious, though. They have a huge martini menu as well as many other drinks. It was hard to choose. We ended up getting martinis, and they did not disappoint. YUM! It's a shame they allow smoking as we would have come here every night had they not. We ended up only staying for one drink as we just couldn't stand the smell. And there is an outside area to smoke so not sure why they allow it inside. The woman who sang the night we were there was great- excellent voice and played a lot of crowd-pleasers...from classic rock to country.

We came on the recommendation of the crew at the Dighy Dock. Glad we did. Was a fun night and worth the drive. Great mix of people.
