Basil's Bar

Basil's Bar, Mustique,

The Scene: Sitting over the Caribbean on bamboo stilts, with a thatched roof and Balinese décor, this formerly tiny rum shack has expanded over the last 30 years, hosting everyone from Academy Award winners to royalty. Owner Basil Charles says the place is as laid back as it gets; it opens at 8 a.m. 365 days a year and closes "when the last man falls."

Signature Drink: Hurricane David, vodka, two rums, Crème de Cocoa, and lime juice; $10.

Don't Miss: Ordering the house special, fresh lobster, or trying the banana pancakes for breakfast.
