Side Street Pub, St Thomas
This much-loved watering hole in downtown Charlotte Amalie takes the same approach to service and drinks as it does with its naming – simple and honest. You’ll find it housed beneath the arches of a handsome colonial building; take a pew outside for excellent people-watching. Try the local-favourite Painkiller, made with rum, pineapple, orange, coconut and grated nutmeg. In a hurry? Grab a drink and a shrimp taco to go.
