A good selection of local eateries awaits in Charlestown in the day time. Most places shut down after dark when the Chinese takeaways are pretty much your only option.

Liming with the Locals

Nevis is a tight-knit community. Just how tight is in evidence every Friday and Saturday night, when roadside cookouts draw locals into the streets for barbecued chicken and ribs, gossip and music. Locals even have a name for this activity: liming, ie chilling or hanging out. The biggest event is hosted by the Water Department on Pump St, near Charlestown, on Friday from about 5pm.
