5 of the Best St. John Bars
The Beach Bar
One favorite option of St. John bars is The Beach Bar! This great watering hole and venue features delicious food and drinks, musical guests, and even its own gift shop for souvenirs to bring back home. You will find an upgraded version of your average pub grub here, such as fresco tacos, a turkey bacon melt, pasta salad, and crab dip with tortilla chips. French fries, chips and salsa, and beach burgers are also in no short supply. Pair your plate with a frozen drink, like the famous Bushwacker, a Coconut Mojito, a Mango Colada, or a Cherry Limeade Slush. Live music will go along great with your mouthwatering food and drinks!
The Tap Room
For a more laid-back atmosphere, try The Tap Room brewpub with locally made craft beer and artisan sodas from St. John Brewers. The pub has been rebuilt and expanded following the fire that destroyed the interior several months ago. This is a great place to grab lunch and a cold beer after a sun-soaked morning at the beach or destination for some live music and island nightlife. Of St. John bars, The Tap Room is a local favorite with island-brewed Tropical Mango and Island Hoppin’ IPA beers and Root Beer on tap. Combine your beverage with a great appetizer, salad, sandwich, or wrap!
