A popular nightlife hang in St. Maarten is this sprawling contemporary space, both an open-air rooftop terrace and an indoor dance lounge. It has aspirations toward trendiness, even if it is perched atop a Burger King and supermarket in bustling Simpson Bay. Outside on the Sky Lounge you can sprawl on big couches, sipping cocktails and chilling to the Caribbean night sky and the silhouettes of the island's mossy peaks on the horizon. Inside is a sushi bar as well as live music, electronica, and international DJs spinning tunes for themed party nights. Privé also has a hookah menu full of fruity flavors to choose from. The daily happy hour (6–7pm) offers discounted drink specials ($1 beers, $3 mixed drinks).
