Features
Dive bar

Known simply as "The Box" to islanders, this famous dive bar is as much a local watering hole as it is a tourist destination. The Chicken Box draws huge crowds of twentysomethings at the height of summer with the best live music on the island and bartenders that always recognize regulars. Although The Box is right outside town, most people take a cab there. Expect to find a line after 11:00 p.m. on weekend nights, but don't get there before 10:00 or you'll be disappointed. When the night picks up, The Box gets sweaty (the air-conditioning isn't effective), but it's absolutely a must-visit for anyone at the tail end of a big night out.
