Entertainment & Nightlife in St Maarten
 
 
 

General

Entertainment and nightlife in St Maarten/St Martin ranks as one of the top spots in the Caribbean. There are multitudes of places to visit and things to do, from family friendly plays and movie
screenings to adults-only entertainment. Many of the restaurants and bars have live entertainment and dancing until the early hours. All the large hotels have casinos. On Friday nights, the Philipsburg board walk along Front Street percolates with activity.

Bars come in all shapes and sizes, from rickety rum shops to neon-streaked nightclubs. Most clubs have a ritzy ambience, tight security, disc jockeys and ample dance floors. Some also have VIP
lounges where Champagne flows and fun abounds.

Places to Unwind

At Dawn Beach, Mr Busby's Beach Bar is a favourite place to kick back and even take a dip in the sea during the day; it turns into Daniel's by the Sea at night. Beau Beaus's at Oyster Bay is the Oyster Bay Beach Resort's beach front bar, which offers tropical drinks, music, and food.

For a unique twist on the typical bar setting, Lady C is a floating bar located along Simpson Bay, where boaters and other party-goers stop in for a good time.

For an upscale, classy, and refined time, you'll want to visit Sopranos Piano Bar. It doesn't get much better than sipping on your cocktail while listening to world-class artists make magic on the piano. Another piano bar, the Red Piano, is located at the Pelican Resort. Most of the time piano is the entertainment of choice, but other live musicians play sets every so often as well.

While some bars are connected to restaurants and may offer a semi-appropriate setting to bring your children, Sunset Beach Bar is not as this is where topless ladies drink free.

St Maarten has added an alternative form of entertainment to its club scene. AXUM Jazz Café, located on Front Street, offers a multi-faceted entertainment menu from live jazz music and reggae to dramatic presentations and poetry readings. The café also serves as a backdrop for the Caribbean's finest contemporary artists to display their works of art. AXUM opens Tuesday through Sunday at 6 pm and serves light platters, appetisers and a variety of beverages.

Philipsburg's busy Front Street is home to two casinos – Rouge et Noir and the Coliseum Casino. The futuristic design of Rouge et Noir is more Las Vegas than Monte Carlo. The flashing lights of video keno and video poker keep the atmosphere lively. The Coliseum has three floors of entertainment, all designed in a style evocative of ancient Rome. Slot machines are on the main level, poker machines can be found on the upper level, and the lower level houses a private gaming room featuring blackjack, roulette, and Caribbean stud poker. The Diamond Casino and The Paradise Plaza Slots are also located on Front Street.

The largest casino on the island is Casino Royale, at the Maho Beach Hotel. Open from 1 pm to 4 am every day of the year, Casino Royale has table limits ranging from $5 to $2,000 for blackjack and from $5 to $500 for craps. Just a few minutes away is the Atlantis Casino at Cupecoy Beach. The Atlantis has a private gaming room for high-stakes baccarat, French roulette, chemin de fer, and seven-card stud poker.
