Nightlife in Montserrat

Don't expect wild partying in Montserrat. Nightlife here usually involves sipping on drinks and chilling out (or 'liming') at a roadside bar or maybe catching a live band on Friday or Saturday night. Come during festival time (December) or over St Patrick's Day (March) and things get a little crazier however.
