Located in the heart of Pelican, The Red Piano Bar is unquestionably on the St Maarten bucket list. Welcoming piano players from all around the world, this amazing venue has live music 7 days a week. Every Monday night, tourists, residents, the young and the less young come together to see the legendary band "Church on Monday" and witness St Maarten's most talented artists. Voted #1 local band in St Maarten five years in a row, Church on Monday never fails to impress. Furthermore, this spot certainly has a drink for every taste bud, from the island classics like the Red Piano Rum Punch to the inevitable Espresso Martini. The Red Piano's friendly bartenders will make you feel like family as soon as you walk through the door, and after a few drinks, they may even let you know all of their island secrets... The Red Piano bar has the widest liquor choice on the island with over 300 bottles on its shelves, from extra old rum, single malt whiskey to fine cognac and champagne. Come early for quiet after dinner cocktail, melt in the cozy decor, enjoy the jazzy piano vibes and you will surely end up staying until the craziness begins! If you're lucky enough, you might even get to dance on the piano until the wee hours of the morning... Don't forget to visit the brand new boutique on your way out and bring back a piece of your Red Piano memory with you! The Red Piano is open from 7pm until 3am, 365 days a year, and now is the first smoke-free Piano Bar/Nightclub on St Maarten.

We actually haven't been here since 2010. They have recently made this bar non-smoking so that was good. We went to see Geoff Healy play at the beginning of March. He really knows how to get the crowd going and rolls with whatever happens. It was a great time.

Went pretty early on a Saturday night in April. The place was pretty quiet maybe because of the time of day or the time of year. The bar had a sophisticated vibe and a very good mellow pop duo.

The red piano is one of the best spots on the island for live music and fun. We love the music and martinis.

This place could be much better if they didnt smoke inside. Other than that, if you can withstand it, you will have a fun time. Music is great and energy is good!

Great night life! I was there a week ago last Monday and the place was rocking! The band was amazing, the place was packed, with people spilling out onto the deck outside. People were happy and dancing. It's a crowded place and not one where you can easily chat someone up; you need to step outside for that. Having said... More

We stopped in for after dinner drinks. Service was quick, live band played great selections but holy crap were they loud. I had to leave as soon as I finished my beer and the other two with me left shortly after. Again, the band ( 2 guys I think) were good but the volume was deafening! I could feel it... More

Great little intimate night club in Simpson Bay. Performers change monthly. The night we went Alan Sheppard from Barbados was playing. He is fantastic! Played such a wide variety of music and the way he transitioned from song to song was amazing. Crowd was all ages and everyone was singing along and dancing. If you are in SXM in March,... More

We had heard a lot of good things about the Red Piano Bar and how it promotes the locals on Monday (Church) Nights, so we thought we would give it a try. There was not much room so it must be very popular- however we weren't there more than a minute and as a group decided it wasn't for us... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Red Piano last November during our 1 week stay in SXM. We read good reviews and decided to give this bar a chance. The bar itself was pretty cool, low lighting, good drinks and fairly priced. The piano player, Frankie Golden, however was an absolute disaster. He was taking shots and pounding drinks the... More

We wanted to go out for live music and dancing one evening, and The Red Piano exceeded expectations. Geoff Healy was performing the night we were there. Everyone seemed to enjoy to eclectic mix of songs. The drinks were good and prices were in line with other venues on St. Maarten.
