Known for having an extremely vibrant and diverse nightlife, St. Maarten boasts talented musicians, upbeat bars and energetic clubs where patrons dance with the abandon of vacation revelers. Although regulars hang out at St. Maarten bars and clubs throughout the week, the island's tendency is for particular venues to host special nights. That way, perennial clubgoers take in new scenery, and visitors get a taste of fashionable spots across the island. Many of the best clubs in St. Maarten operate as restaurants during the day and transform into social arenas come evening, making the transition from dinner to drinks an easy one. Casinos also take their place among the entertainment opportunities in St. Maarten; all of them can be found on the Dutch portion of the island.
