If you love a good cocktail, then you’re definitely aware of just how indispensable good bartenders are in the hospitality industry. They keep the party going. And, they’re one of the many workers that ensure you’re having a good time, wherever you may be. That’s regardless of whether your lounging by the sea at your favorite beach bar, dancing to good music at a nightclub, or simply relaxing and enjoying a good view. February 24th is World Bartender Day. To celebrate, we’re sharing some of the best places in Belize to get a cocktail.
1. Tipsy Tuna Seaside & Sportsbar
Located on the namesake Tipsy Strip on the Placencia Village sidewalk, Tipsy Tuna is where you can almost always find a lively atmosphere. Enjoy the vibrant sports bar setting, complete with flat screens to watch a game, a spectacular beachfront view, and of course, great food and drinks.
