Red Pirates Pub
Red Pirates is a chilled out little beach bar, with a
native theme. There's a funky little beach garden with
chairs and tables made from driftwood and lit by torches
and candles. Drinks are reasonably priced, and it a good
place to meet other travellers and chat. The music
ranges from reggae to chill-out to tribal, ethnic &
acoustic sounds. several night of the week you can enjoy
a live jamming session with bongo drums, rain sticks and
various other native instruments. The owner, Captain
Joey, has a sailing boat and offers sunset cruises,
adventure tours and snokeling trips around the island.
It's also a great place to relax during the day - the
garden is festooned with with driftwood and bouganvillia
flowers and the beach outside is quiet and peaceful. If
you want to get away from the crowds and not be hassled
by vendors, this is the perfect spot. Swing in a hammock
or lounge on one of the beach beds and just chill out.
If you are backpacking or travelling, it is worthwhile
stopping by to chat with the friendly gang at Red
Pirates - they can point you in the direction of the
best budget accomodation in the area, and they are very

Arguably Boracay's best nightspot, Summer Place is a
large native style bar. Its open plan, and facing the
beach - perfect for dancing in the sand on those
full-moon nights. The bar attracts a friendly crowd of
tourists, expats and locals, and the music
varies.There's a good Mongolian BBQ and Sushi available
earlier in the evening but the real fun begins after
midnight. Dance on the beach. Dance on the table. Who

|Hey Jude!: Live DJ
January 1, 2005.
Named after it's owner, Jude, this place serves bistro
style food and great pizzas and after dark there's
usually a live DJ. Hey Jude attracts a mixed crowd of
Manila party people, tourists and expats. They play
chilled music, and usually stay open pretty late. Sunset
is a good time to arrive - sit outside on the beach with
a cocktail and watch the guys playing volleyball or
frisbee. During high season, Hey Jude is famous for it's
beach parties and events, sponsored by the likes of
Slinky and Big Fish, and resident DJ Manster plays
possibly the best music in Boracay.

Bubbles Bar (part of White Beach Divers) is a laid back
and friendly spot at the southern end of the island. The
bar is not only popular with divers, but with tourists
and expats too, mostly English, German and Aussies but
everyone is given a warm welcome. Don't worry about
missing out on the football - there is a TV behind the
bar showing major sporting events. Bubbles is run by an
English guy, Lee, and is well known locally for it's
lively BBQ parties in high season.
No dress code, but Lee has been known to wear a grass
skirt and a coconut bra!

|Pat's Bar: Shoot Some
September 29, 2005.
This is Pat's bar, a nice spot to enjoy a few beers and
a game of pool. The bar itself is nicely decorated,
though small, and there are tables outside next to the
beach. The staff are friendly, and drinks are relatively
inexpensive. Pat's bar and next door BomBom Bar have
finally got together to work out a timetable for their
live music sessions - this is a relief, as previously
the clashing sounds from each establishment made sitting
in the garden less than relaxing!
Address: Near D'Mall / Bom Bom Bar
