Cheap alcohol..

This is are 2nd trip to Aruba, Last trip we learned that the price of drinks depending on were you buy them can be alot different.

we like to walk around in the evenings at palm beach,around the mall and shops,and do some casino hopping. but we don't want to make the mistake of buying $7 or $8 beers when we can buy them for half that price. any info on cheaper drinks ideas or tricks would be greatly appreciated,

I forget do they give you free drinks while gambling?

Try Cafe Rembrandt for drinks. I was there one night with a friend and we had Amstel Brights for about $3.50....walked over to the Hard Rock (it was new at the time so I had to check it out), and had the same beer there for $7. Needless to say, we went back to Cafe Rembrandt and spent alot of our evenings there! LOL!

Hi - We stayed at Tamarijn in 2007 - As I recall, we got free alcoholic drinks at the Alhambra Casino,so long as you play the tables or slots. The casino is between the Tamarijn and High Rise area.

I didn't win aything at the casino but left quite drunk!!!

the casino tip is the best you can do for cheap drinks; play quarter slots and get drunk on $5! just remember to flag down the waitress.

also, buy your bottles as soon as you get off the plane; much cheaper than grocery store.

I find that giving the waitress $1 tip for a drink while gambling will keep them coming back. While at Alhambra last year, we were there an entire hour and not one single waitress came my way; flagging them down seemed impossible as well.
