Rick's Cafe, Jamaica

Rick's Cafe is one of the most famous drinking spots in Jamaica. The bar is located on a seaside cliff in the tourist haven of Negril. The views, especially at sunset, are postcard-worthy, the water below the bar is incredibly clear, and if you get the urge, you can even jump off the cliff. Though the shoreline is rocky, there are steps that take you closer to the water (and there is a beach nearby).

Because of its setting, this venue is popular with tourists. Some visitors say it's too crowded, but there's no denying this is an ideal spot for a seaside drink. In the evenings, reggae bands take the stage, adding to the chilled-out island vibe.
