The newest addition to St. Thomas's nightlife scene is the Starz nightclub, a chic, modern entertainment center that bills itself as "filling the void in Virgin Islands nightlife." The club opened on December 16, 2011.
Though St. Thomas has many tourist-friendly bars, there are not many full-fledged nightclubs – and the ones that do exist tend to have a locals-only vibe and clientele. So for a long time there was no place for visitors to dance the night away, hear local DJs, and listen to live entertainment in an upscale environment.

By way of contrast, the split-level Starz offers chic leather-and-metal decor, muted neon lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, LED lighting, and soundproof walls.
There are two bars: downstairs is the Johnny Walker Bar, and upstairs you'll find the Grey Goose VIP bar. Bottle service is also available.

Starz is located in the Port of Sale mall, which is near the Havensight shopping center. Check with the box office for details on times and special events, which vary weekly.
