    Rick’s Cafe

    You’ll be joining the touristy throng at this ever-popular West End institution, but why not? Just for one evening. The drinks menu features empty-your-wallet cocktails and pricey Red Stripes (skip the food): you're paying for the ambience, pool access and the live band. Watch local divers try to outdo each other from the 10m-tall cliffs, or jump yourself.

    Drifters Bar

    Swing by this beach bar run by former Drifters singer Luddy for the terrific reggae and soul jam on Friday afternoons, or live tunes on Sunday – or enter a friendly vocal contest with locals during karaoke Wednesdays. There's a decent jerk pit here, too.

    Red Dragon

    About as local as it gets, this friendly, dingy neighborhood dive bar is redolent with the scent of di 'erb. Nothing fancy: just cold Red Stripes and Dragon Stouts from a cooler, older men playing dominoes, and lunchtime jerk pork that locals swear by: get here by noon, or it'll all be gone.

    Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville

    The home of the 'cheeseburger in paradise,' Jimmy Buffett’s sustains a spring-break vibe all year long, although it has a bit of a forlorn air on slow nights. There are big-screen TVs, trampolines in the sea, volleyball, swing hammocks and multiple bars waiting to get you trashed. There are beach parties on Wednesday nights and bucket-sized margaritas all week long.

    Jungle

    The only bona fide nightclub outside the all-inclusives, Jungle, with its tacky decor, is not the most urbane place, but the DJs definitely know what they’re doing; during high season guest talent from Miami and New York regularly takes command of the turntables. Thursday is Ladies' Night and Saturday is great for partying until dawn.

    LTU Pub

    A friendly and comfortable clifftop haunt centered on a small yet lively tiki bar, LTU is the perfect place to strike up a conversation at sunset or to enjoy a Bloody Mary before noon. Good international food, too.

    Sunrise Club

    At the hotel of the same name, this is a relaxed bar for those looking to escape the beach mayhem. We particularly like the cocktails, though the Blue Mountain coffee is a great perk-me-up in the mornings.

    If all you want is to watch the greatest show on earth – Negril's fiery sunset – with a Red Stripe in your hand, then this friendly little place that clings to the clifftop fits the bill perfectly.

    Mi Yard

    Popular with locals, this place draws a late-night crowd into the wee hours, when you can swig shots of white rum and slap down dominoes with the Rastas. Food served around the clock, too.

    Sands

    Even if you can’t afford to stay at Caves, you can still join sunset cocktails at its classy bar on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when it's open to the public.
