Nightlife in the U.S. Virgin Islands is largely of the casual variety. On sleepy St. John, the aptly named Beach Bar located on Cruz Bay’s beach features a regular schedule of live music and is the gathering place of choice for locals and tourists alike. Just up the street, Woody’s Seafood Saloon is part restaurant and bar, part block party, with patrons regularly spilling out onto the sidewalk during the island’s best happy hour and into the night.
St. Thomas offers the most varied nightlife in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Red Hook on the island’s East End is home to a large collection of restaurants and bars, all within walking distance of one another, making for a fun evening of bar-hopping. High on your list should be Molly Molone’s Irish Yacht Pub and Duffy’s Love Shack, both popular casual bars in the Red Hook area.
Nightlife in St. Croix is fairly subdued, but if you’re looking for a good time come sundown, head to Christiansted. The waterfront Fort Christian Brew Pub is the place to go for mingling with locals and tourists and sampling locally made beer. The island’s main town also features various events throughout the year like Jump Up, a Carnival-like celebration featuring steel pan music, dancing, local foods and more.
