Most bars also serve food from opening until about 9pm, during which time, young children are allowed. Bars in different areas of Providenciales close at different times. Some close as early as 10pm, while most close between midnight and 1am. From Thursday to Saturday many close between 2am and 4am, often featuring entertainment such as karaoke, DJs or live bands. Your Villa Manager can direct you to the type of bar most to your liking. Many of the resorts and better restaurants also have chic wine and martini bars. They typically operate from 6pm to 11pm. It is strongly suggested that if you plan to drink at a bar, that you have transportation pre-arranged by the Villa Manager.
