Today we are talking about something extremely important here on island … Happy Hour. 😉 We get a ton of emails asking us what our favorite Happy Hour spot is, and to be honest, it’s pretty difficult to name just one. So today we’re going to give you a nice little rundown of several happy hours that happen here in Cruz Bay. Check them all out and then let us know which one your favorite is.

The Beach Bar: The Beach Bar not only has a great happy hour, but it has a fantastic view as well. From 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. every day, you can get Painkillers for just $4, and well drinks or beers for $3.

  1. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for compiling this AWESOME list of HH’s! Can’t wait to put this knowledge to use next month!

  2. This survey is great, NewsofStJohn!
    I’m sorry to have to raise a flag on this one, however this survey seems to have a bit of a loophole. The fact that you can vote over and over with no limit resulted in two bars getting many hundreds of votes in the last few minutes alone and suddenly shooting them from the back of the list for the last five days to the top of the list this afternoon.  It sorta makes the whole thing a little silly for the rest of us who follow your site and were looking forward to learning the true results.  I had to call BS! Maybe there is a way for ya’ll to filter the fluff?
    Again, sorry to be a downer – but I had to share my two cents.  

  3. I can’t help but notice that The Terrace’s Oyster Happy Hour isn’t listed… I’m not an oyster fan, but it’s a daily stop for my wife and our friends when we visit..
