St. John is a small island with a very small island feel. The population is small, welcoming and friendly. St. Johnians like to 'hang out', have a drink, exchange stories and listen to music. If 'chilling out' is your type of ambiance than you will enjoy the small bars and open air 'watering holes' of St. John.
Bars and Music
The nightlife on St. John tends to be more low-key then its sister island St. Thomas. There are several bars around the island. Many focus on music, food and good times. Live music, including reggae bands, is a popular entertainment. Some very colorful bars can be found in Coral Bay. Cruz Bay is also home to several entertaining spots. It is not unusual in Cruz Bay to find people gathered in front of a small bar, sitting almost on the road drinking, talking and having a great time.
