    St Ives Harbour: People watching

    Nightlife in St Ives for me is much about walking along the harbour, looking at how the light changes and how people start coming out to dine after a day on the beach and all of a sudden there are loads of people chatting and enjoying their holidays. I have been told it gets a bit madder on New Year's Eve down here though :)))

    For those in need of greater amusements at night, I believe there are a couple of clubs further up the High Street but St Ives is more of a general feeling of fun than a clubbing kind of place. A lot of people rent apartments, surf all day and then enjoy their own company and some beer in on the balconies in the evening...

  • Hub: Waterfront bar

    by juliea Written Aug 16, 2007

    The Hub bar is a modern style bar on the waterfront. Living near Brighton, this is the sort of place I'm used to, but, given the young summer population, this sort of place is quite unusual in St Ives.
    It's open all day, for coffee, cakes and tapas as well as the bar.
    At ground level it's open at the front, so you have an outside view of the Harbour across the road, which is pleasant as long as you can ignore the constant stream of traffic.

  • Castle Inn: Good pub in the town centre

    by juliea Written Aug 8, 2007

    Good straightforward pub in the centre of St Ives. I was impressed by the friendly efficient bar staff.
    Sorry, I can't give you details of their real ales as I'm a lager drinker!
    They also do food, although we didn't eat there.
    No children allowed after 7pm.
    Unfortunately, as is the case with most of St Ives, there is no outside seating area.

    Went in here after being told it was the only place to get a late drink in St Ives / Nightclub. Now i have to say i am not normally intimidated but the doorman on this club were the biggest i have ever seen in my life one was about 6'6 and about 25 stone and the other and i am not kidding you must have stood 7' tall and i thought crikey i'm in St Ives not East End London whats going on here has the circus arrived.and The door policy was extremly strict - even to the extent of going through your wallets on the door - luckily once inside is was very nicely laid out good music and an overall decent club but to be honest you could see every eye in the place piercing in the back of our heads as the locals knew we were out of town but to be honest they were friendly enough and quiet harmless

    Dress Code: Smart - just dont go too scruffy as the Gorillas ahem i mean doormen wont let you in

    The Sloop Inn: A trip back in time!

    A nice cold pint beckons!

    One of Cornwall's oldest and most famous Inns, favourite haunt of locals, fishermen, artists and tourists all year round. Believed to date from about 1312 A.D., the Sloop Inn is situated right on the harbour front at St Ives with only a cobbled forecourt and road separating it from the sea. all i will say if you have a bit to drink then watch your head when you go out as the doorway is a bit low.

    Also does great food as well !!!!

    Dress Code: casual
