    Nippers Bar and Grill: Unbelievable fun at the best beachside bar ever!

    by JacquieDeVita Updated Apr 4, 2011

    ...According to the Web site...

    Nippers Beach Bar & Grill – It's Not In the Brochure!

    You may have read about Nippers in travel magazines, seen photos on calendars, or perhaps even seen a documentary on the Discovery Channel -- but you'll never read about Nippers in any travel brochure. Why? Simply, because this particular piece of paradise can't be adequately described in any number of words or photographs. You simply have to experience it for yourself.

    Perched high upon a forty-foot dune, Nippers overlooks the Great Abaco Barrier Reef.

    Your quest for paradise ends with your discovery of Great Guana Cay. it's easily reached by boat or ferry service from Marsh Harbor. If you have your own vessel and want to spend the night or longer, you can drop anchor in the harbor or hook up on a buoy or dock in a marina.

    No reservations are required, but Nippers will accept them upon request. Call 242-365-5143 or hail Nippers on VHF Channel 16. They'll even pick you up from the docks in the settlement with a free ride on the Nipper Mobile! However you choose to visit Nippers, do it soon.

    All You Can Eat Buffet starting at 12:30

    **This place, by the way, is no place for teetotalers. YOU MUST HAVE A FROZEN NIPPER! (That is a drink, by the way.) YOU MUST! IT IS A RULE!! And, there is a lighthearted challenge that no one can drink more than five (5). I recommend having no more than 2 -- spread our over several hours!!!

    AND, you must see...

    Out Islands: Best local bars on Green Turtle Cay!

    by profuselycool Written May 25, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So Green Turtle Cay, a short 15 minute water taxi from Treasure Cay, is by far my favorite Bahamian island. Please go there! ANyways, once you get to the island (which is pretty easy by the way,) you've got to head to Sundowner's in the famous "Old Downtown" at the southernmost tip of the island. Later, head to Pineapple's just up the road. For a bit more flare and live music, the Green Turtle Club on Marsh Harbor in the middle of the island is a great option.

    GTC is only 3 x 1 miles long, so you can navigate the entire island by golf cart in under an hour. If you're going to the Abacos anytime soon, look for GTC!

    Dress Code: absolutely whatever

    Nassau: Casino... is there anyhting else

    by XKuger Written Nov 19, 2007

    I stayed at the Atlantis and besides the lame night clubs that they have for kids. There wasn't much night life in the resort, Most people just hit the Casion's once it gets dark.

    Also getting into downtown become an issue as there are no ferry boats into town. You need to get a cab, where fares are negotiable based on how you look /dressed.

    Whts worse is that almost everyhting is closed once the cruise ships depart. I went into two and did not find anyhting to eat.... the streets look deserted and scary. As a tourist you look like a running target. I finally walked quickly to Senior frogs and had dinner.

    Dress Code: They will take you money as long as you have shirt/shoes.

    I did see some people over dressedin tucks and playing the slot machines.. Maybe they got ripped off at one of the high prices restaurents and now loosing theit shirt in the Casino

    Bahama Mama: Small but fun!

    by carolinak2 Updated Oct 7, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It might seem small and simple bar, but that's just the Bahamian way! Start the night there, have a Tequila, watch someone drinking a bodyshot, laugh, meet the owner, talk to local people! Enjoy it!

    Dress Code: Just wear comfortable clothes

    Bahama Mama Booze Cruise: Party till you. . .

    by diver-x Updated Sep 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can't go to Grand Bahama without somebody trying to sell you tickets to the Bahama Mama Booze Cruise. You get all the Bahama Mamas you can drink and hors d'oevres too. They warn you that the drinks will sneak up on you, but I disagree. Those drinks stand right up in front of you and smack you in the face! A bus ride is included in the ticket price and it is highly recommended that you take it! Admission is $29, and children are not allowed.

    Dress Code: There is no dress code, but most people dressed smartly.

    Not sloppy yet. . .

    Cruise Ship: Excellent Entertainment/Party areas

    by Chrissy1967 Written Feb 17, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was a different experience dancing on a ship with the waves and the motion. It certainly made drinking your Bahama Mama's a fun night. But the night club on the cruise was full of fun and meeting new people, which some were rather interesting!

    The marketplace courtyard at Port Lucaya: Relax with music and a pina colada

    by evebeals Updated Jul 23, 2004

    Get a pina colada and settle down with your friends or significant other on one of the benches or tables around the courtyard in the marketplace, where free music is offered nightly by local bands, and the locals as well as the tourists gather and occasionally dance.
    The music is free, and although the quality of the performances vary, it is almost always enjoyable, and is a nice, romantic way to sample the local culture.

    Dress Code: Whatever you want - if you're coming from a nice restaurant like La Dolce Vita, being dressed up is certainly appropriate, though if you are coming from the beach, a halter top and shorts is fine too.

    Waterloo: Over the bridge

    by Paradiseblue Written Jan 5, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While the Atlantis nightclub dragon and the casino are great nightspots, it's really only inhabited by tourists. If you want to mingle with natives go over the bridge and head over to the zoo (about a 25 min drive) or the waterloo (about a 10 min drive) where you'll find simple but spacious accomadations with an outdoor pool and grill where you can buy burgers and snacks when you get hungry toward the end of the night. And of course great reggae music!

    Dress Code: shorts, tank tops, flip-flops, anything goes!

    Cruise ships travel mostly by night giving you plenty of time at your destination. You can gamble, both on ship and in the Bahamas. Drink alot and most things at night. The cruise ship left Miami at sunset.

    Chicken took me to some night club.
    They were playing dominoes for money & they're very serious about it. There was
    an outdoor dance floor on the beach & they were playing lots of dance hall reggae.

    The nightlife on The Abaco...

    by mcharlton Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The nightlife on The Abaco Islands centres around the bars at Marsh Harbour’s various inns and marinas. And if you arrive too late to catch a favourite artist or group, check around. Most proprietors share schedules and offer live music at different places on different nights. Check locally for schedule updates about who is appearing where.

    Whether it’s live music, dancing or local island grooves -- you’ll find it all in the Abaco nightclubs.

    Miss Emily's Blue Bee Bar was the most unique night spot I had ever been in.
    Everyone dances and has great fun.

    Dress Code: Wear cool comfortable casual clothing.

    by JPGeorgia82 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Don't miss the Bahama Boom. It wasn't good until after midnight, but this is one spot you don't want to miss. It is right near the port and has the greatest music and atmosphere.
    Large shark mouth upstairs is worth a look. Music is very fresh.

    Dress Code: casual
