Sunset Bar & Grill; Princess Juliana International Airport, St. Maarten

Although this bar isn’t technically inside St. Maarten’s airport, it might as well be; it’s separated from the runways only by a narrow strip of road, and the air traffic controllers are broadcast from speakers inside the bar. When planes take off or land, they soar right past you, sweeping the proverbial paper umbrella off your Runway Rum Punch (made with coconut rum, pineapple and grenadine). The indoor-outdoor spot also sits right on Maho Beach, with an attached stage for nightly music and the occasional bikini contest. sunsetsxm.com
