5 hottest bars in Barbados

Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark

That extra zing

1. Lime Bar

That extra zing

Our all-time favourite bar

Mix it up with an evening at Lime Bar, where you can sample some of the most stylish cocktails around – from a mean mojito to a cool caipirinha. Sit back, relax and let live music entertain you, or catch up with friends over your most-loved liqueur or a chilled beer. A great spot for drinkers of all ages, it also serves food and is best visited on Fridays when the atmosphere and the beats are really buzzing.

Sipping and shopping

2. Ju-Ju’s Beach Bar

Sipping and shopping

Set next to an exclusive little boutique called Starfish and run by the ever-popular Joanna, Ju-Ju’s is surely one of the best beach bars you’ll ever stumble across. Not only does it serve a powerful rum punch (a must in Barbados!), it also offers food dishes, all with stunning sunset views and just steps from the sea. Locals, ex-pats and tourists (not to mention famous faces) flock to this no-frills shack for a slice of island life.

3. Red Door Lounge

For crafty cocktails

This chic cocktail bar brings the high life to Holetown. Renowned for its elegant décor and laid-back ambience, Red Door is a place for chatting against a backdrop of the latest hits, the best of the classics and cool DJ mixes while sipping a creative cocktail. Sample the signature Red Door Mule or a Déjà Vu, paired with a tasting menu of gastronomic delights. All in all, this is one of the most sophisticated bars on the island.

For a musical medley

4. The Mews Bar

For a musical medley

A late-night bar attached to a restaurant, the Mews Bar serves just about every drink you could wish for – from Champagne by the glass to the coolest cocktails and vintage whiskeys. But that’s not the only draw to this casual venue – the live band, Saphire, plays a heady mix of jazz, hip-hop, reggae and Bajan favourite soca every Wednesday and Friday. Fun and funky, the entertainment is bound to bring you back to Barbados.

A great venue for all the family (yes, parents can have fun too!) to sit back and soak up the chilled vibe of the area, it serves a long list of beers and strong cocktails that will tempt you back time and again.
