4. Chill out at Prive Hookah and Sky Lounge

Editor’s note: Establishment is permanently closed

Feel like you are on top on the world at the Prive Hookah and Sky Lounge. Definitely a great place to start your evening, especially if that evening is a nice warm one. I’d recommend trying to catch the sunset at the sky lounge while sipping on a fruity cocktail with your sweetheart. Guaranteed for a romantic evening. However, there is a lot more to do at Prive! Grab a hookah and relax on the open terrace and enjoy the views of Simpson bay and Lagoon. If you want to get down on the dance floor, don’t worry because Prive has you covered for that too. Featuring live DJs, Prive is open 6pm to 3am everyday.

If you fancy something a little more low key then a DJ and a nightclub, then Sopranos Piano bar may be the place for you. After a long day at the beach why not unwind a little, head to the bar and grab a drink, then sit down to a little live music. Sopranos Piano Bar is a nice lounge bar located on the first floor of a modern shopping complex, but the odd location shouldn’t deter you, its rated one of the best lounges/bars in the Caribbean.

Its live piano players rotate every month or so, so make sure you keep coming back because you’re likely to hear new performers and songs pretty often. The performers are great personalities so they will definitely keep you entertained. Just make sure to tip if you want to hear your favorite.

What night out on the town isn’t complete without some good food? If you’re hungry after all those drinks, check out the Sunset Bar and Grill. It’s a great place to spend the evening with some live music, good food and proximity to Princess Juliana Airport, so you can walk off the plane and head on over. But what sets this place apart is that it is a popular place for plane spotting. The low approach of incoming jet airliners is what made this place so popular on Maho Beach.
