Grand Cayman comes to life at night with several spots to party:
O Bar/ The Attic
Royal Palms Beach Bar
Almost every bar/restaurant will have something happening at night, so you wouldn't be far from the party scene.
Aqua Beach was another cool bar (similar to Coconut Joe's) that was close to our hotel in Seven Mile Beach. One of the nights we were hanging out they had open mic night and there were numerous local bands or musicians showcasing their talents to vacationers...or maybe other locals too.
Dress Code: Flip flops, jeans, and a t-shirt for me. Cayman may be a little more upscale than some of the other islands in the Caribbean, but you are still on an island!
This place had some of the coldest beer I have ever experienced. It was located right across the street from our hotel, which made it easy to stumble home from nightly.
Dress Code: Flip flops, jeans, and a t-shirt....I don't visit many places with dress codes that doesn't fit that description.
Pretty small little club-you walk in the entrance and then immediately up stairs(The Next Level) Small place but the whole thing was pretty much a dance floor crowded with kids gettin crazy(myself included) overall fun place for this small island-one thing-I guess that normally the Government shuts the clubs down at 12 but for some reason that week they were open till 2
Dress Code: Island casual to cool as you wanna be
Just a few years ago if you asked some-one where the night life was, they'd laugh at you. There was nothing but local hang-outs, but that has all changed now. I'm still partial to cuddling on the beach, but if you live a fast-paced life and want to move... the best club is Sharkeys.
It is incredibly well air-conditioned and that's important on a hot night. There's a good dance floor where tourists and locals mix... It's pretty hoppin' most nights.
Dress Code: Clubing clothes... That means no flip-flops. You have to be wearing a shirt, shoes, and well pants for that matter. In other words don't look like you just crawled up for the beach after a day of playing in the sand.
I prefer outdoor bars-trapped inside bars in US. But Royal Palms if nice and clean and open and run well. Music and dancing but never on sundays. One of the laws. Also the bars close early compared to US and Europe.
Drinks are expesive all over the islands. I usually have a drink before going out and just go light at the bars. Keep a designated driver as driving on the left is hard if you are tipsy. No one going home in a box please.
Bartenders are great. Some from the old HI. Lots of fun meeting different people from all over. Dining at the Reef Grill. Your kids can go also. Good fun-my 10 year old nephew thought it was great and his virgin Cayman Sunset delicious.
This island is geared to divers, sun worshipers and family. Early bars hours and no gambling. No nudity and they refer to themselves as encouraging a "christian Island". They are good natured but do not want thongs and such but the police will politely tell you to cover up.
Most people are so tired after the water and sun and outdoor fun early nights are no problem. For adults and kids
Dress Code: Nice and casual except for a few "high class" establishments. Just call and ask. When I go to town I wear a simple dress-not much boob or butt showing and I am waited on much faster and with more friendlyness.
I always did well in nice sandals and short/dress outfit. I rarely saw the need for a man to wear a coat and tie.
I don't think Grand Cayman is really a night-life kind of spot. If you're into partying, try Miami's South Beach instead. Grand Cayman caters to retired folks, cruise ships and divers. None of which are likely to be out clubbing at 2 am.
My favorite night activity was night-snorkeling. Grab your snorkel gear and an underwater flashlight and head for the nearest reef!
O-Bar and La Bodega. Both located on 7mile beach.
O-Bar is open a little longer then the other clubs. Has dj's spinning, great music. Fun times. La Bodega is a spanish style restaurant that in the night turns into one hot spot. Good looking staff and great food. Even better at night when all the hospitality workers come in for a night cap.
Dress Code: Dress code at O-Bar. No shorts for men and sandals. Women can get away with almost anything...no jeans. La Bodega - casual, smart.
Really not much night life. Town closes uo at 5pm. The Lone Star Bar is a fun place. So is the Lazy Lizard.
People watching. Lazy Lizard was the 'in' spot for locals when I was there, but Lone Star has also had that title.
Dress Code: None to speak of. Shirt probably. Shoes maybe.
Live music Wednesday to Saturday at an outdoors beach bar with dancing under the stars. The house band is Coco Red who plays reggae, soca, merengue, Top 40's. There's a good mix of locals and tourists.
Dress Code: Casual
Comedy Club right across from the Westin Resort on 7 mile Beach
It was a standard comedy club but with the British Indies flare.. It was a great time after a relaxing day on the beach.
Dress Code: Don't recall a specific dress code but probably not blue jeans
Wed. night we were back enjoying the 'island-Slide Jammin' party in the Morritt's bar---more games and prizes and free raffle tickets and discount drink tickets. My daughter even won a rum cake for scoring well on the name that tune contest. After that party was over, we went to the patio and enjoyed the entertainment of Peter Bacon on the keyboard.
TUes night was a comedy dinner and karaoke party---which we missed both of unfortunately. We had gone into Georgetown that day. But we later found out that the current Morritt's activity director, Ken Evans, had previously travelled all over performing a comedy act. He is from Chicago and another very interesting fellow to talk to. Shortly after our trip, we learned that Ken will no longer be the director there. The previous one is returning. I guess I'll have to go back and see if he is as good!
We spent most evenings at the Morritt's enjoying the planned activities of the evening. Sat. night we went to the bar for the 'Last Days of Disco' 70's party with games, prizes and name that year trivia contest.
There isn't a lot of nightlife on the island, but there are a few beach bars along Seven Mile Beach that can be fun. Some of them have live music (steel drums) and all of them can make a great Mudslide
Dress Code: Casual, in the winter it can be chilly though with the on-shore breeze.
