The Island of St. Martin (or St. Maarten) has been colloquially referred to as “The Las Vegas of the Caribbean”. Why? You may ask.

The island comes alive at night and there is no shortage of fun things to do for whatever tickles your fancy. Drinks? Clubs? Casinos? Food? St. Martin has you covered. Enjoy a relaxing day in the sun in St. Martin and live it up at night at one of the island’s top nightlife destinations.
Read on to find out about the best things to do in St. Maarten at night:
1. Prive Hookah and Sky Lounge
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.

2. Sopranos Piano Bar
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.

3. Celine Charters
The Caribbean is gorgeous. The lush greens and colorful vegetation and flowers make it picturesque and on top of that, there is the aqua blues of various lagoons and the Caribbean sea. All of that is great and definitely something every traveler should see when your there, but there is also the beautiful night sky. Boat charters are not only great for a day trip, but a night one as well. Celine Charters are great for a night out on the water. Bring your friends, bring some of your favorite drinks and enjoy a night out cruising around Simpson Bay Lagoon.
Celine Charters offers sights you wont get anywhere else in St. Martin. Celine Charters also offers something no one else does - The Boat Pub Crawl! That’s right, Celine Charters will bring you to various lounges and restaurants around Simpson Bay where you’ll get an entree, appetizer, dessert and drink. Celine Charters is great for a night out with friends and is perfect for birthdays and anniversaries.

4. Sunset Bar and Grill
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.
