Looking for a resonable to bar to hang in antigua

I would like to find a decent bar to hang in Antigua and get a early lunch and drinks with my wife. Its nothing for us to sit at a bar for 5 or 6 hours so if we can find one reasonably priced that would be nice too. It will just be the 2 of us. I would like the bar that the local fun guy would hang in not the tourist crap, Thanks in advance!

I'd second Bee-Hive located in the middle of Heritage Quay in St. John's. Last call isn't bad but can be quiet on the weekdays if you're planning on going then. Westpoint Bar in Jolly Harbour is a good option with a mixture of locals, expats, and tourists. You will also find the same mixture and a bit more liveliness in English Harbour. Putters on Dickenson Bay is another good mixture option.

The bar scene isn't as developed as the US/UK, and going to a bar on the weekday might find you the only person there, except for maybe the options mentioned above. The liveliest bars are the ones with a mixture of residents, but good luck exploring the options listed!

If this is for a cruise ship stop, there will be thousands of others coming onshore, and plenty of those visitors may be looking for much the same thing. B Hive is right by the dock, so can be the first spot that barflies will find, and it might be very busy. There are some great beach bars, but you will find there are other tourists there and that certainly doesn't make them 'tourist crap'. There are also some great local rum shops, but they might not be what you're looking for either.

Most of the 'local fun guys' have jobs, so the chances of finding in any bar (unless they work there) are low, especially on a weekday.
