Larry's Landing, Cruz Bay, St. John
U.S. Virgin Islands
Concierge.com's insider take:
All dive bars have their quirks—at Larry's, you pour your own drinks. Ask for a cocktail and the bartender will give you a cup of ice and everything you need to mix it yourself, including full bottles of booze, soda, juice, and fruit. Locals like to say it's the reason why many visitors wake up the next morning wondering what happened the night before. Shoot a game of pool or belly up next to fishermen who just docked in the harbor, only steps away. Sports nuts will love the ubiquitous TVs often broadcasting Patriots, Red Sox, or Celtics games (there's a growing population of Boston transplants on the island). There's not much else in the way of ambiance—the bar is a simple wooden horseshoe, and the only dancing is by the patrons standing on top of it. Refined drinkers beware.
Open daily 12 pm to 1 am.
