Five-star beach bar with lively atmosphere and beach views 11 Reviews
Three free Cuban mixed drinks Timings: 6pm-11pm (Tuesday)
With undoubtedly one of the most enviable settings in the neighbourhood, Horizon already has an edge over its beachfront competitors. If you’re in search of a bar with a sea view and a lower riff-raff density than, say, Wavebreakers, but not quite as sophisticated as the One&Only Royal Mirage’s new Jetty Lounge, this may well be the spot for you.
Thursdays and Fridays draw a young, attractive crowd, many of them moneyed (judging by the large bottles of beverages on most of the tables) and plenty of them wildly overdressed. This is absolutely not the place to take a teary-eyed girlfriend for a heart-to-heart or a recently fired colleague for a pep talk – the music can be astonishingly loud, and gentle sentiment can get somewhat lost when you’re shouting.
On the other hand, if you’ve had enough of stuffy clubs and are looking for an alternative spot to lounge around (there are bed-like seats available, but we wouldn’t recommend these to the mini-skirted), this could well be the spot for you. You’ll be paying five-star prices for the drinks, but don’t expect any smiles from the bar staff.By Holly Sands
