3 Best Bars in Nevis, St. Kitts and Nevis

Chrishi Beach Club

Fodor's choice

Though more of a daytime hangout—especially Sunday when local families descend on the lovely beach—this spot keeps hopping into the night, thanks to vivacious Norwegian expats Hedda and Christian "Chrishi" Wienpahl. Sprawl on beach waterbeds in the shady Love Shack + Bar or on comfy chaises in the "stripper" lounge, replete with a pole for shimmying. Enjoy the righteous lounge mix (and mixology), the wildly popular movie nights, and the DJs on Sexy Saturday Nights. Browse Hedda's fun, funky HWD line of jewelry, which incorporates leather, coins, and found objects. Dine on salads, pizzas, sandwiches, and sushi as well as more substantial dishes like butterflied prawns in garlic-parsley sauce. Kids even have their own club with fresh-fruit smoothies. The adjacent Zenith Beach villa development has some spectacular units.

Water Department Barbecue

Fodor's choice

The Water Department Barbecue is the informal name for a lively Friday-night jump-up that's run by two fellows (nicknamed the Pump Boys) from the local water department. Friday afternoons the tents go up, and the grills are fired. Cars line the streets, and the guys dish up fabulous barbecue ribs and chicken—as certain customers lobby to get their water pressure adjusted. It's a classic Caribbean scene.

Crowned Monkey Rum Bar

A trendy and sophisticated bar located inside the Four Seasons, this is the spot for a relaxed, but upscale happy hour, quick pre-dinner drink, or nightcap. As the name implies there's an extensive list of rums (and rum tastings available), including the bespoke signature Crowned Monkey Rum—14 year-aged in single bourbon barrels—that's only available at Four Seasons Nevis. It's also a prime spot to perch yourself to enjoy the live music that often happens at the hotel.
