West Bar

West Bar is the new premier bar and hot spot on the West Coast, easily found in the spacious courtyard of the elegant Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown, St. James. West Bar is where conversations intertwine with an upbeat, well-curated playlist of music that serves as the perfect soundtrack as you sip on one of their classy signature cocktails.

West Bar will also be joining in on the festivities, with their New Year’s party starting at 10pm, featuring one of the island’s top DJs. Only $50 BDS will get you in, and fun party favours are included. However, if you dine with them before 10pm, there’s no cover charge to stay on for the party! Sweet!

The West Coast is one of the most popular spots on the island for watching fireworks, offered by the many hotels, bars and restaurants, so you’ll be in the perfect position to see the display at midnight!

The Cliff Beach Club

One of the latest and greatest additions to the famous West Coast, The Cliff Beach Club, is also offering a New Year’s party this holiday season. She sits nestled on the rocks right next to her big sister restaurant, The Cliff, a name already associated with beachside dining and exquisite service. Boasting a 180 degree oceanside setting and a completely new a la carte menu courtesy of head Chef Jérémy Dupire, The Beach Club has set out to distinguish itself with a more casual dining experience while maintaining the same high standards that The Cliff is famous for.

DJ Joe Santoro will be playing the crowd into the New Year, and starting your year off on the right track (pun intended!). $500 BDS will get you in, and is inclusive of drinks, party favours and a fantastic view of The Cliff’s very own fireworks display.

So put something nice on, grab your crew, and make it a New Year’s Eve to remember!
