where do people/local like to hang out east side of croix
I will be arriving 2 weeks from today/Sept 1,2009. i was wondering where the locals/people like to hang out in christiansted?
you might be able to search for Christiansted or St. Croix nightlife...although it isn't what it used to be!
Brew Pub is where everyone 18-35+ hangs out. Not sure how old you are, although it doesn't matter. Tuesdays from 5-9 are 2 for 1 drinks, Saturdays are fun, Thursday and Friday has live music usually.
Every First Saturday of the month, Tutto Bene (italian restaurant) has a disco party. it's disco music to start, then dancehall and reggae after. $5 cover charge and there's never (not that i know of) any dangerous issues there. i think they have security around.
Zebos (a great wine bar with a pool room and a good menu) is a fun place to chill. sit on the couches, watch tv, get together with friends.
First Fridays are every (duh) first friday in christiansted town. stores are open later, restaurants usually have specials.
Every Friday at the Buccaneer Hotel is 1/2 off grey goose cocktails and bar menu. the martinis are SOOO good and they're big. best dirty martini i've had on island. plus, they have lots of special kinds including chocolate, espresso, pomegranate...the food is really good and comes out to be a great price since they don't cut down the portions of anything. the view from the terrace is spectacular.
i am 50. but age doesn't matter to me. what matters is FUN.
there are also trivia teams (trivial pursuit) - my dad is part of one at The Palms on Mondays. There's another one at Chicken Charlies out East (it gets really loud and crazy busy out there) on Tuesdays, and on Thursdays there's one at Rainbow Beach in Frederiksted (far out, but a great sunset!). It's a great way to meet people that have been here awhile.
Magpie, you must have been reading my mind. Arriving same day and wondering about good/great places to meet, greet and really stomp your feet:}
Sept 1 will be a Tuesday. Everyone will be at brew pub for two for Tuesday.
On Sept. 1 Tuesday at Off The Wall is Open Mike night from 6-9. The Off the Wall band is great, then sometimes other people get up and play or sing. It is usually on the first and third Tuesday of the month. The second Tuesday is beach bingo. You can meet lots of locals there.
Also out East you could hit Chenay Bay resort. The bar Mahi's has live entertainment most of the week.
Angry Nate's is on the Christiansted boardwalk and has a great, silly, fun group of people that hang out there!!! Lot's of sailors and such...Happy Hour is from 4-6 every day, and the bartenders are fun to be around! 🙂 Everything else mentioned above it fun, too! Goodluck!!!!
The good thing about the bars in C'sted is if one ain't happening, walk to the next!!!
If you wanna go further east, you have to drive but...Wednesday seems to be the night. $5.00 burger and fries at Mahi's (Chenay Bay), Prime Rib (with an actual bake potato!!) at No Bones Cafe or all you can eat pizza buffet (granted it's kinda small) at Chicken Charlie's for only $10.00.
Get ready to head out now, no idea were I will end up.
