    There are 8 taverns in the game. In each there will be a place to interact and you will then be asked to beat up some bandits. After you are done with that, the tavern is unlocked, simple as that.

    The 8 taverns are located in:
    Andreas Island (579, 720)
    Arroyos (192, 563)
    Corozal (41, 266)
    Crooked Island (807, 541)
    Grand Cayman (394, 324)
    Île À Vache (843, 140)
    Kingston (See note below) (623, 172)
    Salt Key Bank (495, 634)

    Thanks to Taeglin and Prattalmighty for this update:
    The Kingston bar doesn't seem to want to show on the map for some people. It can be found just North of the Westernmost harbourmaster along the shore, and WILL show up on the mini map. It is three houses north of there.

    LionQIn Salt Key the bartender didn't spawn for me. Just quit to main menu and reload. He will be there, allowing you to beat up the thugs.

    kiomxThis was one of 3 achievements that glitched on me that forced me to do a 2nd playthrough. However, this glitched again on my 2nd playthrough. There is a way to prevent you having to go for additional playthroughs, even doable on first playthrough if you take immediate action: the good old delete local save. If you're not familiar, BE ESTREMELY CAREFUL AS YOU CAN DELETE YOUR WHOLE GAME IF NOT PROPERLY DONE -- Basically - if achievement glitches, hit xbox button >> home>> start button on the game tile>> manage game >> saved data >> your profile >> delete from CONSOLE >> click the game again. This is not cheating per TA policy, at least as of 2022 policy. Basically what this does is deleting your local save, which includes the latest you've done since last time you synched to the cloud (you might lose some hours of prior progress as well), then when you load the game again, since game does not find a local save, it recreates your local save based on what's on the cloud for you.

    This saved me from madness, I would have lost it if I had to go for a 3rd playthrough, as much as I enjoy the game.

    The above guide is very good. There is a problem with the Grand Cayman Tavern even showing up on the map. The location is in the red restricted zone. The solution is to do the assassination mission on Grand Cayman, go back and clear out the guards. Fast travel to another location and this should force the game to save, go back to Grand Cayman and the tavern will show up on the map and be unlocked and ready to fight the locals

    Warboy925Worked for me as well, had the same problem, all I did was do the assassination mission, fast travel to the view point in town and went straight for the tavern, plus one from me......

    P.S.The assassination mission in Grand Cayman was the PERFECT spot to get the Wild West Indies cheevo!!

    PowerPyx has a very helpful video on his Youtube channel for this achievement. He shows both the location of the city and the tavern. If you'd rather use a video guide (if the taverns aren't showing on your map), then this is the way to go.

    NOTE: If a Tavern is not available for you, simply fast travel to the nearest viewpoint and return and that should fix the problem.
