    please suggest an evening itinerary in palm beach area

    Not sure what to do with our first evening in Aruba. We'll be on the beach in the afternoon and watching the sunset, but don't want to do a sunset dinner that night - we'd prefer to eat later. What should we do after watching the sunset? Is it nice to walk along the beach after sunset? Where to eat...ideally we'd like nice views or ambiance, but with a more casual menu. We're not into the bar scene - what else can we do for an enjoyable night in that area?

    Thank you!

    how about bugaloe beach bar? it is not a nightclub kind of place, but has great food and drinks, is on the water and has music.
    it is really wonderful there.

    it is located on palm beach near the hilton.

    also too there are nice restaurants at the mall across the street and it is a nice place to stroll, shop and look at the sites.

    Stroll the Hard Rock Cafe area - little shops and cart vendors with a live band as the background music.

    Bugaloe was my thought as well (great minds think alike), its the perfect spot to get in island mode. The views are amazing, the drinks and food are good and at reasonable prices. When we use to stay on that end of the beach we typically went there our first evening, at least for drinks....

    Another one for Bugaloe, although I also like the little restaurants at Arawak. You can eat outside and they usually have music. We've also gone just for dessert and found them to be accommodating.

    Thank you all! Bugaloe it is, followed by walking around the various shopping areas. Sounds good to me!

    And take the time to walk thru the Hyatt lobby.... beautiful and you can generally expect music in the evening.
