My partner and I were on vacation for the weekend and we wanted a place to hang out on Friday night. We were told that Bourbon Beach is the place to be. We therefore went. It had a great vibe to it. It was very laid back. The place wasn't too crowded. It had a bar area and a few... More

We went on a Monday night and saw a fantastic band. We went back on Tuesday and saw a great DJ. Lots of locals. Lots of hustlers. Super chill vibe. No cover either night. Drinks were $5 U.S. Very cool place.

I went to Bourbon to hangout to listen to a band and basically was accosted by drug dealers and prostitutes (even though there are 'no solicitation' signs every where) while they were playing an old Kung-Fu movie on a screen rather than music. So I left about 10 minutes after getting there.

Wide variety of music when i went the 1st time, 2nd time was live concert for roots and cultural music, and apparently they even have magic shows on some days!...Nice circular bar... More

Great venue, with a talented house band, and plenty of local talent performing. It's intimate, and gorgeous during sunset, with decent food, decent drinks, a tad expensive, but not prohibitively so. If you want to experience some great music on your trip, come here!

Okay, so I travel regularly to 3rd world countries and might be slightly more in-tune to my surroundings than most Americans (my wife included). Even she was observant enough to see that this "Local" establishment is running a low-class brothel on the premise. There are signs all over the property that say "no soliciting", but they go unread and unenforced.... More

Friendly atmosphere. Good/cheap drinks. Good music. Literally on the beach. If you sit on the top deck, you can lounge on the couches...looking down, you can see all the live entertainment...look up & you can see every star in the sky!
