William Thornton Floating Bar & Restaurant

The Bight Bay
Norman Island , British Virgin Islands http://www.williamthornton.com/
284 496-8603

A regular bartender here who goes by the name Zeus holds court over a tribe of bikinied lasses as they line up for a four-way “shotski,” drunk from glasses sunk into an old water ski. The Willy-T, as it’s known, is a 98-foot schooner anchored off Norman Island in the British Virgin Islands. While not exactly Spring Break Cancún, the party can get plenty rowdy, especially during high season when dinghies tie up en masse.

What to Order: Zeus Juice, a mix of tropical fruit juices and the bar’s own Willy-T rum.
