Overlooking Bournemouth's, UK-rated number 1 beach, Aruba intends to add a touch of the Caribbean to our often all too dreary shores. Settled by the sea at Pier Approach and exuding an exotic, easy-going vibe, Aruba is a contemporary-cool hangout amongst students, tourists and locals alike, featuring everything from fresh food, exciting events and delectable drinks.

Stylish, sleek and spacious, Aruba upholds a modish-modern look and, thanks to its cool, breezy hue tones and strategically scattered palm trees, dangling disco balls and lanterns, and colourful bar lighting, you and your chums will feel as though you've just been flown off to the Caribbean. Even in the height of winter, a summery, holiday-happy atmosphere encapsulates this bar and restaurant, so you can escape the cold December chills for a while.

Aside from its popular DJ club nights and juicy cocktail mixes, Aruba plays host to a broad and brilliant, international-inspired food menu, catering to all hungry palates from morning 'til late. Although the pizzas are a commonly popular preference here, we'd recommend trying the "Aruba Beach Sharer" if there's a bunch of you for just £12.95. Jigger-wise, we say get tropical and refresh your tastebuds with the £7.00 "Lychee Mango Cooler".

A word from the chef:
From British favourites and class Caribbean cuisine to American grub and Mediterranean munch, Aruba incorporates a chunk of chow from all over the globe. We'd recommend the juicy "Aruba Jerk Chicken" served with sautéed spring greens, rice & black beans & spicy jerk sauce for £13.50.
