It's not very lively, but there is some evening activity. A couple of the major hotels have entertainment on weekends, usually a combo or "jing ping" (traditional local music). The clubs and bars in these hotels attract mainly foreign visitors, so if you'd like to go where the locals go, head for one of the following.

The Balas Bar, at the Fort Young Hotel, Victoria Street, in Roseau (tel. 767/448-5000), is the place to be every Friday between 6 and 8pm. Drink specials, usually rum punches, are the feature, along with a live local band. It's open every day from 10am to 11pm.

Another very happening bar is the Cellars Bar at the Sutton Place Hotel, Old Street, in Roseau (tel. 767/449-8700). Various events are staged here throughout the week, including karaoke on Friday night. Amateur bartenders tempt you with their specialties on Wednesday night.

Symes Zee's, 34 King George V St., Roseau (tel. 767/448-2494), is the domain of Symes Zee, the island's best blues man. A local band entertains with blues, jazz, and reggae. Here's your chance to smoke a reasonably priced Cuban cigar.
