Most of the time, this pub within the Fairmont Hamilton Princess seems starched, a bit stuffy, and patronized with a clientele preoccupied with whatever sales meeting they're on their way to or from. But whatever you believe to be true about this place will change, perhaps radically, if you venture inside between May and October on any Friday night between 5:30 and 10pm. Then, thanks to the hordes of singles who gather on the nearby verandahs of the hotel that contains it, there might not be room to sit. Some islanders insist that it's the hottest and most easy-to-flirt-with-a-stranger venue on the island. We can't confirm that for sure, but with more than a thousand partyers who cram into this place to hear the live entertainment and to see and be seen, among other things, the metaphor doesn't seem far-fetched.
