There are many must-do’s when coming to Curaçao, but visiting a cocktail bar is probably not on that list. However, if you’d like to have a truly tropical experience than visiting a cocktail bar in Curaçao for some quality craft cocktail is a must. When you think of the Caribbean, you think of palm trees and sipping Mai Tai’s with your toes in the white sand. In Curaçao, we take your culinary experience up a notch and swap those overly sweet Mai Tai’s for delicious a delicious blend of quality (sometimes even local) spirits with fresh homemade juices and syrups. We produce our own gin and, of course, Curaçao liqueur, so make sure to ask and try cocktails using the local spirits. There are many cocktail bars in Curaçao that serve craft cocktails and each one gives a different experience. If you’re a cocktail lover, then this list will certainly serve you well.
