It was admirable, the enthusiasm of the animation's team in Palladium Hotel.
I know it was just opening and that enthusiasm will, probably fade, but a small group of young people "dragged" life and fun to all corners of the hotel, sliding from show stage to disco across all the hotel's bars.
I think that Fernanda only stopped dancing ten minutes after falling asleep.
It was around 11 PM when we arrived at this place and the party was already bumping. This was a good place for our large group to go to. A huge bar was stationed in the center of this place. A cover charge of about $10 U.S. dollars was charged as we entered. There was DJ music being played and we had no problems here. Everybody had a fun time dancing and the majority of the local people partying inside were quite cool. Pier One also had a nice pier area that you can walk out onto and it had a great view of the bay. The only thing I would have to say that was a a bit of a buzz kill was that there was a guy on the pier offering to sell us drugs which I thought was a bit uncool. Even if we were into that lifestyle choice, I didn't think that here would be the proper place to buy soft and/or hard drugs. Local laws prohibit this behavior.
Dress Code: Dress nicely as this place is very local. When we were there in early May, few tourists were at this place yet it was still packed with locals. Save your beach attire i.e. flip flops, bathing suit, and Jamaican island shirt for the daytime. When you come here, be prepared to dress up and party!
Following the Spanish example, that we can see is dominating the hotel, the animation tries hard to keep the guest in the move. Most events take place in a separated place, surrounded by the shopping area. This seeming a good idea, led some tranquility to the hotel and bathing areas. Nights were calm, maybe too much!
This is a group of quality voices, graduate and undergraduate, who perform shows with both original and traditional Jamaican songs. The show we saw was at the campus theater and started at 8 o'clock and finished by 11. Tickets were 1500 Jamaican dollars and sold out. I am not sure that there were any tourists other than ourselves. Unless you know Jamaican Patois you will not understand all the words, but still the music is great.
Dress Code: Although many of the attendees were very well dressed, but casual, school-acceptable, was fine.
I went to Island Black Pearl Nightclub in Montego Bay while I was visiting some relative in Jamaica. A friend of mine heard about that club who recently opened at Ironshore: Island Black Pearl.
I have to say that I really had a great time. The music was awesome and their martinis are phenomenal. To my surprise, they have a huge shark tank inside the club, an amazing laser show, flat screen TV's throughout the club which are quite cool to watch as you drinking, dancing and having fun. It's safe and worth checking out this club, especially if you like dancing with some fine people!
They have a DJ from the US that jams like you've never seen before: DJ Laz from Miami Power 96fm. They also have a rooftop dance floor with an amazing view of the bay. There was no cover charge when I was there their Valentine's Day Party, but the owner told me that soon, they'll charge a reasonable cover fee. I highly recommend Island Black Pearl Nightclub if you are in the Ironshore / Montego Bay area.
You will have a lot of fun! Island Black Pearl is the place to be on a Friday and Saturday night in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Dress Code: Dress code is casual
We stayed in at night during this trip, we went to the local bars at the resorts, some had music and others were like people watching after a few drinks, you are going to meet interesting people here, from the guests to the bartenders. There is a nightly trip to Margaritaville, but we missed it each time.
Dress Code: Causal
Ok ill start with the first place we went...
"Just Cheers"- this is supposed to be a night club, but it has more of the feel of an outdoor Barbeque! Loud music, lots of YOUNG local people, dancing, alcohol, Ganja, dancehall, reggae, hip-hop! It was cool, but go with people you can enjoy yourself with, not some local JANKY persons that end up pissin you off... But still good times... IRIE!!
Margaritaville- I loved Margaritaville, we went twice on Saturday and Monday night, however the pool party is on Wednesday night. I loved this club, the cover after 12 was only $10!!!!! Alcohol was over priced though!! $10 for a shot of Hen... anyway... Reggae, dancehall, and hip-hop music, the dancing is hot!
Piory Beach Party (sp?)
We were told this party happens every Sunday and yes it was located directly on the beach, with the ocen just feet away! It was absolutely beautiful scenery! In the beginning though, they play a lot of older music, it doesn't really get poppin' until about 2-2:30, so I wouldn't suggest going until that time! Again reggae, dancehall, hip-hop music, alcohol, ganja, some little snacks. But do be careful and keep your possesions close on your body!
Dress Code: There wasn't a specifc dress code at any of these spots! Most people weren't dressed up though! Very casual, flip flops, little thin dresses, shorts, and tanks will work!
If you only take one night out of your AI hotel, make it Bourbon Beach. Chances are you'll hear about whos playing and when from the many announcements by boats cruising the hotel beaches. Whilst we were there both Yellowman and John Holt were playing. We went and say Mr Yellowman, and it was a fantastic performance, but a very late one. Loads of opening acts though to keep you happy until he showed up. The Red Stripe is cold and a waitress will top you up if you can't make it to the bar yourself. Plenty of seats, but not very comfortable for long periods, so best to get up and dance. Plenty of dealers and hawkers, enough to become annoying. Not bad priced, jerk chicken and so on. Reasonable facilities and mostly friendly crowd of locals and visitors.
Dress Code: Anything goes here.
Every Tuesday at the Starfish Trelawny hotel in Falmouth where i stayed they had Beach parties. They start at around 7pm where you can enjoy a buffet meal on the beach with some beers and cocktails then at around 8pm they bring out the dj and everyone from the hotel and some locals join in for a fun night of partying and dancing on the beach.
They start off with competitions where you get into two teams then have to do silly tasks which are really fun when you've had a few drinks.
Then they do dancing competitions aswell and you have to take it in turns to "break it down" as they call it in Jamaica and impress the crowd with your dancemoves. I enjoyed watching all the locals dancing along the ocean and really impressing the girls with there moves.
Dress Code: Casual, bikinis, swimwear and shorts aloud aswell as going barefoot on the beach too.
This is the place to party when visiting Jamaica. All the Jamaicans recommend you go there at least once during your stay. Me & my Auntie Sue went 3 times... i really enjoyed it in there. The music was great, the people were friendly, and the drinks were a reasonable price. When you first walk in theres a lady who gives you a shot of something for free to get you in the mood!
It has a mix of people, lots of local Jamaicans aswell as tourists from England, USA, Mexico and allover Europe. It has a lively atmosphere and exciting entertainment to suit everyone.
It has an open air bar upstairs and downstairs you can enjoy a drink and watch others dance or simply join in with the fun. It was fun watching the locals get up and dance on the bar to the Reggae music. Anyone visiting Jamaica should go here and enjoy at least one night out.
Dress Code: Casual dress, most people tend to wear shorts, flip flops, trainers, vests etc. No need to dress up in heels like i did the first night i went.... i was far too hot in them.
Whilst in Jamaica i wanted to see the real Jamaica and how the locals like to really party at night.
So one night some Jamaican friends i met took me & my Auntie out to a local street party. The party was rammed with loads of people, loads of booze and of course clouds of ganja smoke and lots of loud music and everyone was enjoying themselves.
The speakers were as big as houses blasting out Sean Paul, Sizla and anything else you could think of... so you could imagine how loud the music was.
It was great to experience some real culture and watch people dancing to the Reggae all night. Even children were there dancing away and they were pretty good dancers too.
Drinks were really cheap, bottles of Red Stripe was only 1 US Dollar and you could get 7 bottles of Heineken in a bucket for only 10 US Dollars.
At the end of the night you could buy yourself some jerk chicken, rice & peas and red pea soup for only 3 US Dollars... it was a nice treat after a few beers!
So if you ever go to Jamaica make sure you give a street party a try.
Dress Code: Anything you want to wear.... wear it. Casual dress mainly.
This place is a combo of arcade, casino, disco, bar, restaurant.
On Tuesdays they have a play called viva xiamaca. It is a fabulous production of the history of dance and music in Jamaica. I highly recommend this place.
Dress Code: Casual chic to dressy
Funny, watching all the tourist get into the drinking all-inclusive resort fun... We noticed most people came to the hotel compound and never left. We sat in a few nights and listened to live carribean bands and acts.
Dress Code: casual
It's all about the timing-their was not alot of people while were there-and not alot of action during the night-everyone told us it was because Spring break is the time to come for parties-but since we started partying around 10am we were not too inclined towards going out at night-
Dress Code: hahahaha!
This is my favorite Margaritaville yet. When you are in another country, you want to visit places authentic to that country, but for whatever reason I walked over here for lunch and there goes my day. I was here for hours as they poured tasty rum down my throat. As cruise ships come in and out, girls would come in, you have some drinks, laugh and converse, they leave, and then the next ship comes in, and this continued into the evening. And the beach is right there at the bar. What else could you ask for?
Dress Code: As long as nothing is hanging out they'll let you in!
