Fodor's Expert Review Big John's Bar & Grill
This waterside sports bar and restaurant, patronized by the younger set, is one of the most popular places on-island to party, dance, and grab a cold beer, burger, or native snack. It's open from 11:30 am 'til late. It now sports a snazzy humidor with (apparently) authentic Cuban cigars. Come nightfall Thursday to Saturday, a fabulous local Bimini band plays live music combining pop, Bahamian hits, reggae, and soca. At midnight, a local DJ takes over and spins until 3 am. If you want to book a room in the boutique hotel upstairs be mindful of the loud vibes. There's a $10 cover when live music plays.
