Places to Unwind

St Thomas

On any given night, especially in season, you can find steel-pan orchestras, rock and roll, piano music, jazz, broken-bottle dancing, disco and karaoke. Pick up a free copy of the bright-yellow St. Thomas-St. John This Week magazine when you arrive; it can be found at the airport, in stores and hotel lobbies. The back pages list who's playing where. The Friday edition of the Daily News carries complete listings for the upcoming weekend.

St Thomas has more nightlife than any other island in the US or British Virgin Islands, but it's not as extensive as you might think. Charlotte Amalie is no longer the swinging town it used to be. Many of the streets are dangerous after dark, so visitors have stopped visiting the area for nightlife, with the exception of a few places, such as the Greenhouse. Much of the action has shifted to Frenchtown, which has some great restaurants and bars.

The big hotels, such as Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort, Bolongo Bay, or the Ritz, have the most lively after-dark scenes.

There are several drinking establishments in Red Hook, on the East End, including: Caribbean Saloon, Duffy's Love Shack, Fat Boy's, Molly Malone's, Island Time Pizza and XO Bistro.

Reichhold Center for the Arts on the University of the Virgin Islands is the island's only place for major performances. Imported symphonies, ballet, and repertory companies join home-grown theatre and dance groups in staging performances.

Pistarkle Theater, in the Tillett Gardens Art Complex, holds performances throughout the year.

St Croix

The island's nightlife is ever-changing, and its arts scene is eclectic, ranging from Christmastime performances of The Nutcracker to any locally organised shows. Folk-art traditions, such as quadrille dancers, are making a comeback. To find out what's happening, pick up the local newspapers, V.I. Daily News and St. Croix Avis, available at news stands.

Christiansted has a lively and eminently casual club scene near the waterfront. Clubs near the Christiansted waterfront often have rock and roll or reggae bands. Indies Restaurant is the place to go for jazz on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights during the winter.

Frederiksted has a couple of restaurants and clubs offering weekend entertainment. The Blue Moon restaurant has jazz on Friday nights and at its Sunday brunch. On Wednesdays when there is a cruise ship in town, downtown Frederiksted comes alive with a street party called Harbour Night.

Cane Bay's Off the Wall beach bar and restaurant, located near Frederiksted, has blues or jazz Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The St Croix Landmarks Society sponsors classical music concerts during the winter at its Whim Plantation Museum, located outside Frederiksted on Centerline Road.

Divi Carina Bay Casino has the island's only casino. Located on the island's east end across from the ocean front resort, the casino attracts locals and visitors for a day or evening of gambling.
