St. Martin/St. Maarten is an island of fine dining and European-style accommodations, so it’s only natural that you’d find a lively, cosmopolitan nightlife scene here. On the Dutch side, Simpson Bay is your best bet for a fun night out, but be ready to stay up past your bedtime — the party typically begins around 10 p.m. and clubs stay open until the wee hours of the morning. Bliss Nightclub, located next to Maho Beach, is a popular outdoor club and lounge where house music reigns and international DJs sometimes make appearances.
The party also starts late on the French side, where the Marina Royale in Marigot is the place to see and be seen. Catch live local music and see street performers here, then check out one of the area’s chic nightclubs.
