One of the most popular nightclubs of the island. In the early eveing you can have a nice dinner and some drinks. Later on they pump up the music, the families disappear, leaving the dancefloor to the party crowd. Very interesting interrior (frogs everywhere) and often a long line to get in. If you ask me, it's not that much better than any other club but for some reason it's extremely popular! Quote from a local:" You haven't been to Margarita if you didn't arty at Señor Frogs!"
There is a street where Venezuelans drive up to when the clubs close. It's by the beach and the ideal place to continue the party. Tonnes of parked cars, doors wide open, reggeaton blasting from the speakers, people dancing, drinking... Watch the sunrise out of the sea. It's the perfect ending of a heavy party night!
If you've never gambled before, this is the perfect way to get the flavour!:) In the mall El Sambil, there is a small casino area; if you wait a couple of minutes, you will see a huge door opening. Get in there! It only stays open for a minute or so. That's the bingo area. Very popular in Venezuela. You play for extremely small amounts of money and can win nice prices! If you don't understand spanish, no problem there is a screen where the numbers are projected! Addicting but Fun!
Playa el Aqua is the finest beach of the island! (so most tourist are there, so did I)
night life starts very early in the evening! (9PM) and ends max (1-3AM)... There is lots police around but I advise after all if you are a girl ... don't walk alone, just in case...
Dress Code: do not wear expensive watches or jewellery!! you don't do this at home ether if you walk in a less safe neighborhood...
We met some local people from our age, and get the invitation of a private underground techno party. No tourist allowed, only we did... If there is 1party i'll ever remember when I'm 103jears old... it gonna be this one...
If you want to go to such parties you'll have to know some local party people...
Dress Code: be unique! ... as always...
In these hotelcomplexes there are very often entertainmentteams who entertain the tourist, so they don't have to go outside the building.
It's dangerous to go alone out in the evening.
Isla de Margarita is a dangerous place to go alone.
The entertainmentteams are giving dancinglessons, playbackshows, theater, singing, etc.
Señor Frogs is one of the limited nightlife options. Weekends are obviously a better time to go as it is usually pretty dead during the week (at least in the low season). It is just like any other Señor Frogs.
Dress Code: Pretty lax
Senor Frog's does not close til 5 am. Most people get there around 12 am. People from all over the world hanging out. Great music - some Spanish, but mostly in English. A great night club to come and visit when here in Margarita Island.
