Happy hour in Bermuda consists of outside settings, photogenic scenery, refreshing cocktails, and evening laughter and chatter. There are plenty of places to wind down and kick-start your evening, but here are 10 happy hour spots where you can count on delicious cocktails and sunset views.
1. MARINA NIGHTS AT 1609
THE VIEW: Enjoy wide-open views of Hamilton Harbour and the soothing soundtrack of waves lapping against the docks at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club in Central Bermuda.
THE VIBE: The carefully crafted cocktail menu here is stocked with Bermuda classics such as the Rum Swizzle and Dark ‘n Stormy®. But you could also try the Bermuda Old Fashioned: Gosling’s Family Reserve Rum, Maker’s Mark bourbon, peach bitters and orange peel. Perfection.
2. BONE FISH BAR & GRILL
THE VIEW: Take in a sweeping panorama of the historic Royal Naval Dockyard and majestic cruise ships at this West End happy hour spot.
THE VIBE: Get comfortable on the Bone Fish Bar & Grill's open-air patio and order the Fishizzle, their version of the classic Bermuda Rum Swizzle – only bigger. On Fridays, mellow out to Randy Lambert’s Spanish guitar.
3. ST. REGIS BERMUDA
THE VIEW: Perched on the island’s East End, the St. Regis Bar overlooks historic Gates Bay, where the first English settlers wrecked the Sea Venture in the 1600s.
THE VIBE: The resort is legendary for luxury, but the bar’s dress code is casual and the vibe is celebratory. Expect exceptional craft cocktails – the savory Gates Bay Mary is a favorite.

THE VIBE: Every Friday night, The Silver City Band featuring Kassie Caines and Jesse Seymour plays live music. Enjoy sushi and tapas along with great cocktails.
5. THE BIRDCAGE

THE VIBE: Unwind to great tunes while enjoying delicious local craft cocktails and epic sunsets. The bar features weekly specials, live music and a great vibe for all.
THE VIEW: Harry's is the perfect place to gaze out over the harbour and Pembroke waterfront.
THE VIBE: The restaurant/bar’s namesake, Harry Cox, was a famed Bermuda deep-sea diver. But he also was known for his special rum blend, which is made to Harry’s precise original specifications here. Ask the bartender for Harry’s signature cocktail.
