St Kitts Bars And Restaurants
We call it “Limin”, enjoying a drink or a meal with friends at any time of day.
From relaxing beach bars to fine dining restaurants, St Kitts has a Limin’ spot just for you.
Drinks of St Kitts
Our local lagers are Carib and Stag.
We also brew Guinness, Mackeson, and Skol here on the island.
Non-alcoholic brews include:
Giant Malt, Ting, and Peardrella. Ting goes exceptionally well with local rum, just order a “Ting with a Sting“
Rum of St Kitts
The St Kitts Rum Company produces the famous “Brinley Gold” rums in 6 varieties and their “Shipwreck Spiced Rum” and “Shipwreck Coconut Cream” are also sold around the world.
Hammond (our local moonshine) is locally made in small pot stills and it is, of course, illegal. If you ask around, you maybe lucky to come across someone who knows someone with the right connections.
We also have the new “Jolly Roger” microbrewery which opened in 2018.
This brewery, the only one of its kind on the island, produces craft lagers, IPA’s, Ale and Cider, all “on tap”
The Famous Frigate Bay “Strip”
By day, a great beach to relax on, by night it transitions into an open air party, lots of music and the most scenic pub crawl in the world!
Feel free to buy a drink in one bar, walk along the beach drinking it, sit at the next bar and get a refill whenever you need to.
Situated alongside the Caribbean sea this is the place for both visitors and locals alike. On weekends the music last “till day ketch um moon”.
14 or so bars and restaurants, lots of local food and an excellent Mexican bar/restaurant.
Visit the famous “Mr X’s Shiggidy Shack” for the Thursday night bonfire. Try “Buddies” for ribs and Patsy’s, a family run restaurant with the best food around.
Start your evening at “The Dock” where happy hour begins at 5 pm every day.
More Beach bars worth a visit
Reggae Beach Bar is always a lively place, try it on Friday evenings for their famous “Lobsterfest”, an all you can eat experience with a local twist.
Also on Cockleshell beach is Spice Mill for the more upmarket experience.
Salt Plage was one of the casualties of Covid.
The bar remains closed, however the bay is still accessible.
This bay is very shallow and has great opportunities for snorkeling.
Old Road Bay
Sprat Net Bar and Grill serves Lobster, ribs, and fresh caught fish, all served with Corn on the cob, Potatoes and Johnny Cakes.
All the fish is locally caught by the family. Live music on Wednesday and Saturday.
Old Road village, set on a cliff overlooking the sea, ideal spot to watch the sunset.
