3 Best Bars in Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas

Bones Bar

Fodor's choice

This trendy spot on the waterfront at Pelican Bay Hotel is a popular evening and late-night watering hole with the local expat crowd, with swim-up seating at the adjacent pool. Sip high-end tasting rums or fresh-squeezed cocktails like the Silver Fox (lime juice, homemade simple syrup, and vodka). The only food option is their delicious homemade savory meat pies. Call ahead to place your order as they tend to run out early.

Rum Runners

Fodor's choice

This busy bar on the corner of Count Basie Square specializes in keeping bar hoppers young and old supplied with free Wi-Fi, tropical frozen drinks and punches, and piña coladas served in coconuts. Sit outside for people-watching or inside for cool air-conditioning and TVs broadcasting sports events. The kitchen serves up basic American and Bahamian bar food. Happy hour is daily from 5 to 7.

Coral Beach Bar and Restaurant

At the popular and long-standing condominium property Coral Beach Hotel, this spacious, open-air bar bustles with visitors and locals, too. Bartenders serve up tropical drinks and cold beer to a lively crowd with music in the background. The menu boasts Bahamian favorites like conch fritters along with burgers and sweet-potato fries. Situated poolside and beachfront to Coral Beach, this spot is fun for lunch and a daytime drink, too.
