Sandals Regency La Toc: Cricketer's: Fun Pub
Cricketer's is the English Pub at La Toc located in the Main Building above the pool. The Pub is a nice size with plenty of pub tables, boothes, bar seating and an outdoor terrace. It's a comfortable place to grab a Guiness or drink in the afternoon, pre-dinner drink or enjoy a game on one of their many TV's. They also serve good pub grub if you want a snack or meal. The Fish & Chips is quite nice especially paired with a Guiness or Piton Lager.
Our first afternoon at the resort we spent some time here on the terrace with Chris and Karen enjoying some beer and Rum Punch. After that day we made Cricketers a daily stop for a drink or a snack.
Dress Code: Casual but no swimwear.
Sandals Grande: Old London Pub: Drinks in a Casual Pub Setting
The Old London Pub is a casual pub/restaurant located on the property of the Sandals Grande. The pub is located to the back of the main lobby of the resort. The interior is quite spacious with a large number of tables throughout as well as pub tables and bar seating. On the left side of the bar is a separate billiards room for patrons. The décor has London Street signs, old fashioned sailing ships, paintings and similar décor.
Our first visit to the London Pub was for some drinks before our dinner at Gordon’s. I was immediately impressed by the service; friendly and attentive. Someone was always stopping by with a refill or to see if we wanted anything to eat. Kelvin was our favorite waiter; a really fun guy. I wanted something to eat as soon as I saw their extensive menu of pub fare but knew I had to hold off. The menu proved to be too tempting after I had a few pints of Guinness and we deiced to split an order of the Artichoke cheese dip. The dip was very good; a queso with bits of artichoke with tortilla chips for dipping. It was the perfect snack to tide us over until dinner.
Our second visit to the Pub was for dinner with our friends Chris and Karen. We ordered several appetizers: two orders of the artichoke cheese dip, battered shrimp and chips. For our entrees Chris and I went for the Steak & Chips, my wife had the Fish and Chips and Karen had the Shepherd’s Pie.
The dessert menu tempted us all so we had to indulge; after all it is vacation. Chris, Karen and I chose the rice pudding while my wife went for the apple tart. The Rice Pudding was served in tea cups and was delicious. My wife loved her tart that was in puffed pastry crust and smothered in a cheese cake tasting frosting. What a tasty end to a good meal.
Out of all the restaurant and bars; I would say this is where I felt most comfortable. I could easily hang here everyday and indulge in their good pub grub.
Sandals Grande: Admiral Rodney's Piano Bar: Relaxing Drinks by the Piano
Admiral Rodney's Piano Bar is located in the main building of the Sandals Grande Resort. My wife and I were awaiting some friends in the lobby and decided to stop for a drink. We had a seat at one of the many couches available and ordered drinks. I chose a nice cold Piton and my wife had a glass of champagne.
As we settled in with our drinks the piano player began his serenade...what timing I say. We had such a nice time relaxing and enjoying our drinks; that time just flew by. Fortunately our friends found us sitting there and off we went to dinner.
Sandals Grande: Beach Bar: Tropical Drinks with a Beach View
Nothing screams vacation more than drinks at a beach bar. The beach bar here at the Sandals Grande is a nice one. Conveniently located between the beach and the main pool; the bar is quite busy with patrons during the day. We came here for some drinks pre- dinner one evening. We decided to have drinks outside in order to enjoy the sunset. We grabbed two seats at the bar and ordered some of their delicious Rum Punch. I can’t get over how good the Rum Punch is at the Sandals Resorts….it’s the best I have had anywhere.
It was a nice lazy evening with the sun setting over the beach and the air beginning to lose some of its heat from the day. Our Rum Punches were a nice cool refreshment as we enjoyed our laid back evening.Related to:

Sandals Regency La Toc: Sunset Swim Up Pool Bar: Tropical Drinks Poolside
A pool is not complete without a swim up bar in my opinion.....and the Sunset Pool has a nice one. One several days during our trip we found ourselves at the Sunset Pool and the pool bar. The bar is the basic pool bar with several stools on raised platforms in the water.
Ther is nothing better than relaxing in the pool with tropical drink in hand. We enjoyed several of their tasty rum punches, dacquiris and mudslides while floating about.
Service here definitely depended on what bartender was on duty. If Ozzy was working then everything was all right....if his female counterpart was on duty then forget it.
Sandals Regency La Toc: Sunset Bar: Drinks High in the Bluffs
The Sunset Bar was the perfect place for some after dinner drinks. The bar is located up in the bluffs of the resort right by the Sunset pool. We chose to come here after our dinner at Kimono's. The space is a nice size with plenty of seating. We chose to have a seat at the far right of the bar so we had a good view of the pool.
Liz and Karen decided to have Cosmopolitans while Chris and I chose some Piton beer as our first drinks. The bar was pretty packed as guests who were waiting for dinner reservations at Armandos upstairs chose to have drinks here to pass the time. We had a good time here relaxing and laughing about our adventures of the day. Too bad they had the a/c cranked so high or we might have stayed longer...
Sandals Regency La Toc: Pavillion Swim Up Pool Bar: Drinks Poolside
The Pool Bar at the Pavilion Pool is the big focal point. I get it; you’re on vacation on a beautiful island…what could be better than a bunch of tropical drinks. The pool bar has a large board hanging over it with a large selection of themed cocktails and frozen drinks. The pool bar has in water bar stools on three sides. The fourth side is accesible from the "dry" side and has bar stools.
Our first full day at the pool bar I managed to work my way through half of the menu with my friend Chris. Karen tried a variety of cocktails but was very happy to find they made Bushwackers; one of her favorites. My wife tried a few new drinks but mostly kept it tame since she doesn’t have a big tolerance for alcohol. Despite what I had read in reviews; the drinks here are good and full of liquor not watered down at all. Service was spot on and friendly. Every day we looked forward to trying the bartender's special cocktail of the day; some had interesting names such as the Panty Dropper and Blue Balls. I should hope no one has blue balls if the panties are dropped...
I have to say some of my favorites were the Dirty Banana, Rum Punch, No Worries, Mudslide, Lucian Dream and the St Lucia Sunrise. My wife loved their Mango Dacquiri and the Rum Punch. The Rum Punch at this resort is excellent; the best I have had anywhere to date. The pool bar is a great way to meet other guests, relax and have a great time in the water while enjoying a cocktail.

Charlie's: Local Flavour
If you're in Rodney Bay and looking for a drink you will inevitably find two main bars. No disrespect to the others but Charlie's and Rumours are the most popular and interesting of the nightclub selection. I would recomend Charlie's as the music was better and the women uh. uh. friendlier.
Rendezvous Resort: Dancing and cocktails
Staying at Rendezvous Resort was such a golden cage... very difficult to make ourselves leave. So it turned out that every night we stayed in the resort. The bartenders were so great, the entertainment they provided was usually fun... or just sipping cocktails on the beach and watching for the perfect conch shell to wash ashore while sipping rum drinks was perfect.
Dress Code: As casual as you want to be.
"the unicorn" rodney bay: sunset cruise
You can book a sunset cruise on the unicorn, which is the same ship they used in "pirates of the carribean". We unfortunatley had a cloudy night so there wasn't much of a sunset. But, we enjoyed the sail, the breeze, the views -and the rumpunches and champagne.
it was cool watching the crew run across the sail beams barefoot and not taking a fall. and there was a steel drum band to listen to on deck.
Dress Code: I go long sleeve to cover the wind. Drinks are free, but bring $5ec for each bottle of "piton" you plan on drinking.
Hotel night club and bar: Always something to do
At the hotel Rex there is a small night club open bar area.
They have happy hour and a tow for one special.
Later in the evening they will have different activities , with music and dancing.
One night they had a bingo contest and we won a bottle of wine...
They also have other things going on if your into the night scene...
Dress Code: Casual dress is fine
Steel Bands anywhere: Castries Steel Band
The live Steel Bands are something to see and hear. We caught this one preforming at a shopping mall in Castries. The basic principal behind them is the use of 55 gallon steel drums (which were originally used to store oil or other materials) to make music. The drum have been shortended and the top has been deformed to make different pitches, but the only instruments in the bands is these drums. The range possible is fantastic to say the least, so if you hear them making Caribbean music or doing a classical concert, don't be fooled it is only drums.
...at the street: A Jump up!!!!
Each Friday in St. Lucia people have a get together in one street at 9:00pm approx. 'til midnight. They close the street and there they drink, dance, talk with people, buy crafts, and have some fun. The music comes basically from jammin' and R&B CD's and some locals try to dance with beer bottles in their heads. The best of it is that people are very friendly and is an absolutely secure and safe place to be even with children.
Dress Code: You can wear any clothes you feel comfortable with. From shorts and sandals to a nice jean...but not too fancy...just tropical!
