Best St. Thomas Nightspot Areas
In Havensight you will find several bars and restaurants, often with rock and roll music playing, live bands, TV’s for watching sports, pool tables and good times.
In Charlotte Amalie, along the waterfront area you will find some happening bars and restaurants. The restaurants and bars are in walking distance from each other. It is not a good idea to walk in downtown Charlotte Amalie at night outside of the popular restaurant/bar area.
Frenchtown, just outside of Charlotte Amalie, is another good place to go out at night. There are several great restaurants and a few small bars in that area.
If you are looking for a semi-block party island style, try heading to Red Hook.
