Barbados Nightlife

  • Good Times

    The ships in is no longer as of 2012.The Ship Inn was one of Barbados's oldest Bar establishments.It's been around for 30 years It was good. It was replaced by a new bar called Sugar. I have no review on this new bar. I think it's slightly higher end. Beside it is a open parking lot where it's Hal's Bar. Plastic tables and chairs and has Karaoke 3...

  • Rum in the Sun

    Our hotel, the Tamarind Cove, had a guest cocktail party which was actually a free rum party for all the guests.They served delicious rum cocktails in rainbow colours and we drank as many as they handed us.Oooh, tons of fun but a big big mistake. The cocktails were so pretty and tastey that we didn't realise they are sweetened with raw cane sugar...

  • Harbour Lights

    Me and some guests from our Hotel went to Harbour Lights open-air beachfront club. One of the island's most popular, tropical and trendy night clubs. With its live music it was really good fun dancing on the sand, but very tiring. Check as they do special events each week.

  • St Lawrence Gap

    I've read many reviews that St Lawrence Gap is the place to be and be seen on any night in Barbados. Out hotel (Southern Palms) was based at the quieter end of the Gap and we really weren't that keen on the Gap. Across the road from our hotel were some nice gift shops and some nice restuarants..that were quiet and quite relaxing. We went there...

  • My home away from home

    My first stop here was in 1998. Ever since this time, I make it my first stop, in between stop and end stop! Wednesday nights are fantastic! Atmosphere, food and even the drinks will have you wanting to come back every time! There is live Steel Drums and Limbo Dancers who also get the crowd involved. The music by the DJ is driving and reaches your...

  • Living it up Bajan Style!

    Just about the best place to have a good time at St Lawrence Gap has to be the REGGAE LOUNGE. There are special theme nights and live PAs and guest DJs. I attended on a thursday night in October to witness international reggae star Frankie Paul. DJs from all over the world come to play at the REGGAE LOUNGE but resident DJ Adrian mixes a great range...

  • Looking for a crazy time?

    The gap, as it is referred to by the locals, is a long street with a multitude of restaurants, bars, and small shops/vendors that is great for anyone looking to get a feel for the Barbados nightlife. Not much is going on there in the early evening, but by nightfall the place becomes busy and full of people looking to have a good time. Have your cab...

    An Irish Pub in Barbados. Name that doesn't have an Irish Pub.McBrides is decorated with throughout with genuine memorabilia such as stained glass, photos of old Dublin and liquor barrels.

  • Where are all the happening crowds?

    This is not a tip about a specific place, rather than a general tip about where to go and when. very night of the week, there are 'special nights' or 'offer nights' where you pay for entry and then get drinks for free all night (sometimes this applies only to ladies). As a rule this is where everyone is.So if you like to be with the happening crowd...

  • Stop Number 2!

    This was our 2nd stop of our pub crawl. The bar is dark and full of ambiance and downloaded music. We perused their dinner menu and it looked great. We probably would have come back to eat if we were staying longer. The restaurant appeared to be upstairs and down/outside. It was a warm night and although they appeared to have an air conditioner,...

  • Talked Inside!

    Our 3rd stop on our pub crawl. Although it's really a restaurant, there's a sitting area out on the porch to catch a breeze and have a drink. We were approached by the owner as we were walking by, and coaxed into coming in and at least having a drink. It's a little house of a dining room with a bar. Painted in a hippy kind of way, casual. We were...

  • Is it Cocktail Hour?

    This quaint place appears just be an unpretentious, friendly, little bar when you walk in, but there actually is a restaurant attached. There is stool seating all the way around the small square bar. The wooden walls have artistic graffiti all over them. The bartendress (sp?) was very friendly and the owner was on site. Just stopped for drinks...

    If you're more into the pub scene than the club scene and you want to check out a few local haunts, then you might like Worthing. There are quite a few neat little bars along the main road as you go through this district.In our case, we started at the western (Bridgetown) end near Blue Orchids Hotel and ended up in the club district at St. Lawrence...

  • Upmarket entertainment

    Some nights we would wander down the coast to Sandy Lane, a very upmarket hotel which would provide nightly entertainment for their guests. Anyone was welcome to have a drink and enjoy the performances!

  • All-inclusive on a Tuesday

    Another Harbour Lights style place - packed with tourists as it is probably far too pricy for most locals to go to. All-inclusive drinking on Tuesday nights - as well as 2-for-1 deals at other times. Open late, with taxi rank outside. Smart casual although not too strict.

  • The Ship Inn

    From the front this bar looks like a traditional British pub but is deceptively large- it carries on for miles around the back and has a huge dance area! They often have great live music here too.Sometimes its free to get in but others there is a cover charge- according to the night.

    more
  • Cafe Sol

    This place is so nice and they often run 2 for one specials at happy hour. Its a tiny bar on the corner of the main strip at The Gap and its perfect for watching people go by.They are also a Mexican restaurant so they play great salsa-esque music most of the time.

    more
  • The Boat Yard

    This place really gets going late at night and can have some amazing bands playing. There is normally a cover fee which includes drinks.Don't be put off by the metal detector at the door- it really is safe!

    This is a fairly happening night club. It's fronted by an old converted house, with an outdoor club behind it - complete with a bar, dance floor, beach, and even a burger shack. There're plenty of covered areas in case it rains (like it did when we went there). The crowd is mostly tourists, we didn't see many locals. Good mix of pop and local...

    Wonderful spot on the corner in the Gap. Has a terrace around the outside so you can sit and watch all the comings and goings into the Gap.

  • Best spot on the Gap

    This open-air nightclub offers the opportunity to dance the night away under the stars, surrounded by natural, tropical vegetation. The club offers a wide range of music, from reggae mellow music and Rhythm and Blues to some modern. One of the nights I was there they had a great live reggae band. I don't think this place had one.
