Join the Party

Light up the night on St. Maarten/St. Martin


There’s no better place in the Caribbean than St. Maarten/St. Martin for those who love the party scene.


The island’s multicultural residents have all added their flair to the nightlife scene, making the experience unique. Every evening of the week you’ll find hot spots to suit all tastes and appetites.


At live-music bars and nightclubs, you can enjoy everything from vibrant reggae to the pulsating sounds of electronic house music. First-class DJs and international artists are on hand to make your night out an exceptional one.


The Red Piano in Pelican is a place for live music lovers. The latest hits and classics are teased out of the piano every night by immensely talented artists. Patrons are welcome to request favorite tunes from the pianist. Absorb soul-healing music at “Church on Monday,” the bar’s most popular nightly event.


For music and dancing under the stars, head to Soggy Dollar Bar in Simpson Bay. This hot spot started out as a yacht crew hangout. Now, it’s a popular outdoor party destination. Friday nights are epic here. The DJs spin chart-toppers and classic dance favorites to keep the party going into the next morning.


Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino and Spa welcomes guests after being updated with a new contemporary design. Here you’ll find Casino Royale, which boasts over 21,000 square feet of gaming and entertainment options — the largest on St. Maarten. In addition to two new al fresco restaurants, there’s also a new outdoor bar and lounge where you can grab a few cocktails after dinner and have a great time.


Happy hour lasts way longer than an hour on this rock. The usual time for the drinks to start flowing at special rates is around 4 p.m. Most restaurants and bars offer their own twist to happy hour, like coupling drinks with tapas and entertainment.


Don’t forget that St. Maarten/St. Martin is a duty-free destination. That means partygoers don’t have to spend a fortune on liquor, beer and cigars from all corners of the globe. Have the night of your life — and drink responsibly so the party can keep going.
