Drinking & Nightlife

In Willemstad, it's a fine line between bar and restaurant, as most of the former serve food – some of it very good – and most of the latter have a lively drinking scene, especially as the night wears on. What this means is, you're never far from a cold beer or a classy cocktail. Nieuwestraat, the main drag in Pietermaai, is a good place to start looking, as is Wilhelminaplein in Punda.
