If you want something a little more informal, then Scarlet is the place to be. From the outside Scarlet may not look like much, but once you’re inside, you’ll understand why it is so busy the later it gets in the evenings. The most popular drink is the Apple Daiquiri, and it’s one of the only bars that actually serves this flavor. The only negative is that it’s not on the beach, or near a beach, but maybe that’s for a nice change. It’s a great spot for some pre-dinner drinks.

Hal’s Carpark Bar features half a covered bar and half an open-air bar with big screen televisions displaying major sports events from around the world. The place is rocking on karaoke nights, where everyone orders a rum punch before getting brave enough to sing off-key in front of strangers they’ll never meet again. It’s a fun night out for almost any crowd, and even if you’re not one of the ones singing, you can sit there and laugh at the ones who do. The drinks here tend to be stronger than most other bars in the area. If you’re lucky, you’ll even meet Hal himself on most nights.
