Anguilla has a number of nightlife options and musical entertainment to offer its visitors. Classical pianists and guitarists, a quiet saxophone, reggae, steel drum and calypso bands are just a few options. What We Do in Anguilla and Anguilla Life list 'what, where and when' for night owls. These publications are available from the Anguilla Tourist Board and most properties.

Many resorts and hotels offer nightly entertainment and an incredibly romantic ambience of candle light, moonlight and the music of a classical pianist, guitarist or one of Anguilla's acclaimed reggae, soca, steel drum or calypso bands.
Hotspots and Hangouts
Sandy Ground
Pumphouse Bar & Grill, Sandy Ground (tel. 264/497-5154), is the island's latest hotspot, boasting 30 different rums. The food is good, too, served in a funky dining room with an uneven concrete slab floor that was originally designed as a repair station for heavy trucks. Standard but satisfying menu items include grilled half-chickens, 8-ounce beef burgers, pizzas, and a Caesar salad with slices of jerk chicken. Go any time from 7pm to 2am, except Sunday, when it's closed. Reggae lovers should show up on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and Thursday nights are often devoted to merengue.
