Le Meridian Poolside: Music, Moonlight, Mingling
When I am visiting Guyana, my favorite spot on Friday evenings is at the Poolside of Le Meridian Hotel. From 6pm to midnight, the Poolside becomes a melting pot for mingling with Georgetown's mature crowd of professionals.
Moonlight and ambiant lighting casts gentle hues on the lush tropical outdoor atmosphere. Guests can lounge at tables around the poolside for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres or head to the cozy bar to lime (socialize). There is also an outdoor restaurant serving dinner with an extensive local and international menu.
Live music (usually a classic blend of Caribbean and and international hits) transports you back to the 'good old days' and you can easily pass the evening with friends reminiscing or dancing the night away.
Tourists will find cuisine and cocktails comparable with US prices and major credit cards are accepted.
Dress Code: Attire is a blend of casual and classy. Summer dresses, jeans, sandals.
Windies Sports Bar: Banks beer on tap
Windies Sports Bar might possibly be the Banks beer on tap. You can order by the glass or the pitcher. They have both indoor and outdoor seating.
They have daily "blackboard" specials for dinner plates. Typically speaking, the food is good. The finger foods are decent too, but be warned that the "nachos" are actually just nacho Doritos.
Dress Code: Dress code is casual.
Buddy's: Where most hipsters will go
Buddy's dance club has a 1000 GYD cover charge but drinks are reasonable at ~200 GYD per beer. The music is as varied as the people who come here. There will be a mix of hip-hop, dance, rock, possibly country, Indian, etc. The people who come here are generally very friendly and laid back.
If you do not want to subject yourself to the dance floor, there are billiard tables on 2nd floor. There is no cover charge for this, since there is a separate entrance.
Dress Code: There is no specific dress code, but most guys will wear full length pants and no open-toed shoes. Ladies can get away with almost anything.
