BASIL'S BAR

BY Cameron Swain

WHEN YOU’RE born poor in the West Indies, your road tends to be rocky. Fortunately for Basil Charles, his took an unexpected turn. When a motorbike accident left him lying unconscious by the roadside as a young man, a member of England’s high-society crowd stumbled across him and rushed him
to the hospital. The good Samaritan then lent a helping hand when young Charles recovered and, before long, he found himself running a bar on the island of Mustique in the Grenadines. To this day, Basil’s Bar is considered one of the world’s best watering holes.

Thanks in part to the tiny island’s ban on paparazzi, Basil’s has been a go-to spot for boldface names since the 1970s. Charles has served and sipped with everyone from Hugh Grant and Kate Moss to Amy Winehouse and Princess Margaret. 

THINK PINK

“For anything from swimwear and fashion to shoes, accessories, and gold island pendants, I visit Pink House. A lot of what they offer is locally designed so, like the island itself, it’s a one of- a-kind experience.”
