Amapola: Steph's place of employment
This is where I spent a good deal of time. Conveniently, the three major bars are all located right beside each other, so people just shift. They also serve food, I had the grilled fish sandwich and since the caribbean is about 10 feet away, you know it's fresh:) I know the food is pretty good here, but the drinking is even better. When you know the bartenders, it's the best! I would walk away with like a $3.00 tab each night, IF that.
St. Patricks day here was pretty fun and friday night is karaoke night, so it gets very crowded and it's definitely entertaining.
I should mention here that it's a VERY small island...if you're going to go here, don't do anything that people will remember you by at the bar. It's like any small town and it's best to keep relations and reputations on a good level:)
Dress Code: It's a beach bar, wear what you want.
Banana's: Next to Steph's place of employment
On the nights that there isn't much going on at Amapola, people just move next door to Banana's. Another open air bar facing the ocean, the chairs are more comfortable and the bar is lower, but that's about the only difference...I guess the set up is a little more island hut like:) This is more of a burger joint, though...so the prices to eat here are a bit cheaper. The only thing I got was grilled chicken strips with the excellent spicy honey dip.
Dress Code: Again, on the beach...wear what makes you happy. Dress up a lot, dress down...whatever.
Al's Mar Azul Bar: Beachfront Bar
Dress Code: Island casual - anything goes !! T-shirts, shorts, sarongs, sundresses....I think you would probably get laughed out or kicked out for dressing up !!
