Long a hot spot on the Maho Beach scene, this al fresco nightclub brings a little Miami flavor to St. Maarten. Bliss is practically on the beach, with wooden decks, cabana lounges, cushioned seating, and a heated wading pool to get the youngish crowd in a mellow frame of mind. When the nightly entertainment (live performers or DJs spinning tunes) kicks in, most often post-midnight, the crowd is up on its feet. Note that much of the club is outdoors, so the club could be closed if the weather is inclement.
