  • 1. Shirley Heights Lookout

    The ruins of this timeworn military base transform into a party venue—one that its namesake, Sir Thomas Shirley, would undoubtedly frown upon. After 4:30 pm on Sunday and Thursday, strong rum punch starts to flow, steel pans stir visitors into a frenzy, and the scent of barbecue wafting through the air is irresistible. The lookout is packed full of swaying partiers by 7 pm. It’s $10 to enter and be sure to wear sensible shoes.

  • 2. Abracadabra

    The magic truly takes place after dinner at Abracadabra’s Italian restaurant, as the space transforms into a disco on the covered wooden deck set in the venue’s gardens. No-fuss drinks invite partygoers to a raucous night around 11 pm on weekends (an impromptu jam can occur during the week if the vibe demands). A blend of local DJs spinning reggae to rock and legendary themed parties fuse with a melting pot of guests to create the perfect vibe. For more relaxed environs there is a shack in the back playing reggae and lovers rock (think Sade).

  • 3. Ana's on the Beach

    This enormous, multitier, mostly alfresco beach bar–cum–art gallery styles itself a restaurant-lounge. Although the ramrod chrome-finished chairs make for rigid seating, the loud music begs for earplugs, and the globe-trotting menu is too ambitious, this is nonetheless a hip, happening spot and prime Grade A meet market. Breakfast features a hodge-podge menu of local and international treats. The friendly staff is garbed in black pants and bubblegum-pink shirts (stenciled "love is in the air"), the cocktails are fairly inventive, and the rotating art on the walls—including an epoxy-painted surfboard dangling from the white beamed ceiling—displays a savvy selection of the hottest up-and-coming local artists in various media.

  • 4. Carmichael's

    Bars/Pubs

    Carmichael's is the fine-dining hilltop aerie at the Sugar Ridge residential complex. Nestle into a banquette or lounge in the infinity pool while sipping luscious libations that match the setting sun's colorful display. It's also a splendid spot for a postprandial cigar and port or single malt. You can always head downhill to sister night spot, the bustling, buzzing Sugar Club (by the resort entrance) for live music (jazz to funk) and DJ disco evenings.

  • 5. Indigo on the Beach

    Indigo on the Beach is a soigné spot, yet it's relaxed and great any time of day for creative tapas, salads, grills, and burgers. But the beautiful people turn out in force come evening to pose at the fiber-optically lighted bar, or on white lounges scattered with throw pillows.

  • 6. Mainbrace Pub

    The Mainbrace Pub has a historic ambience, right down to its warm brick walls and hardwood accents, and is known as a beer, darts, and fish-and-chips kind of hangout for the boating set.
