America's Best Beach Bars

Tamboo Tavern, Rincon, Puerto Rico
The Scene: Simply one of the most romantic, sultry beach bars imaginable. Owner Javier Quinones and his wife had their first date here in 1990. They now serve everyone from wedding guests in formal attire to sunburned yuppies in bathing suits. Sit on the beachfront deck with a drink and watch for whales, play footsie in the sand with your loved one, and welcome the evening with hot Latin rhythms.
Signature Drink: Mojito: Bacardi rum with simple syrup, soda water, lime, $7.
