St. Thomas Nightlife & Entertainment Guide

St. Thomas Nightlife

St. Thomas has the liveliest nightlife in the Virgin Islands. It certainly is not Las Vegas, South Beach or New York City but it can be great fun! How about dancing, bar hopping or karaoke? Many bars/clubs play a mixture of American hits and popular Caribbean music. Happy hour at bars and restaurants is popular and is a good way to start a fun evening. Happy hour often includes discounts on food and drinks.
