This is the perfect environment for those looking to party after a late dinner because that all can be done here.

There is even an outdoor area where you can drink or dine under Jimmy Buffett's very own seaplane called the Hemisphere Dancer. Since it's opening, Margaritaville has become such a big hit among the locals, they took Thursday night to designate it as "Locals' Night" with drink specials, live music, and the chance to win prizes.
Bob Marley - A Tribute to Freedom: Arranged like his actual home in Kingston, Jamaica, the live band and great Jamaican food will surely have you up and dancing to Reggae hits by the time you leave. The wonderful environment, Red Stripe, and regular crowd is the closest one would get to Jamaica without actually ever going. The live band that performs here each night also does the best renditions of your favorite Bob Marley songs.
