In Bimini, you can dance to a Goombay drumbeat or try to find some disco music. Most people have a leisurely dinner, drink (a lot) in one of the local watering holes, and go back to their hotel rooms by midnight so they can get up early to continue pursuing the elusive "big one" the next morning. Every bar in Alice Town is likely to claim that it was Hemingway's favorite. He did hit quite a few of them, in fact. There's rarely a cover charge anywhere unless some special entertainment is being offered.

Everybody eventually makes his or her way to the End of the World Bar (no phone), on King's Highway in Alice Town. When you get here, you may think you're in the wrong place -- it's just a waterfront shack with sawdust or sand on the floor and graffiti everywhere. The late New York congressman Adam Clayton Powell put this bar on the map in the 1960s. Between stints in Washington, battling Congress, and in New York, preaching at Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church, the controversial politician could be found sitting here. While the bar doesn't attract the media attention it did in Powell's heyday, it's still a local favorite. Open daily from 9am to 3am.
