The Ocean Terrace Inn's Fisherman's Wharf, Fortlands (tel. 869/465-2754), has a live band every Friday from 8 to 10pm. It's not "after dark," but the Turtle Beach Bar and Grill, Turtle Bay (tel. 869/469-7611), on the southeast peninsula, offers a live steel band daily from 12:30 to 3pm; on Saturday, it's beach disco time. There's no cover at either place.

A few other nightspots come and go (mostly go). Currently, islanders hang out at Bobsy's (tel. 869/466-6133), clearly signposted from the roads leading into Frigate Bay. Another local dive, Henry's Night Spot, Dunn's Cottage, Main Street, Cayon (tel. 869/465-3508), has a loyal following, as does the Oasis Sports Bar, at Frigate Bay (tel. 869/466-1814), where a medley of large-screen TVs broadcast current or repeat views of major sports events from the worlds of American or European football, baseball, or basketball. At the Marriott Resort at Frigate Bay, the Royal Beach Casino (tel. 869/466-5555) lures gamblers to its large casino with slot machines and games of chance with croupiers. For the high roller, there are private salons. And if you opt for an exploration of the casino within Marriott, you might as well explore a bit, since that resort contains at least six bars.
