Want to party in Barbados?

Click on the coastal area for advertised bars and night clubs on the West Coast and South Coast of Barbados.

The three most popular venues on the South Coast for 'party animals' are probably Harbour Lights, Boat Yard and The Ship Inn. Harbour Lights and Boat Yard both offer evenings where you pay around US$15/ £10 to get in and then drink as much as you like all evening! Dress is smart casual unless stated otherwise. Contact them if you're not sure.

On the West Coast we also recommend The Casbah Nightclub, situated in the Baku Beach Club in Holetown St James on a Saturday night- a bit dressier that other clubs.

See West Coast clubs and bars!        See South Coast clubs and bars!


Party Cruises

Away from the clubs and abundance of bars, several boats offer day and night party cruises. They often offer free transfers to and from your accommodation. If you are planning a wedding or special occasion why not charter a catamaran or boat and enjoy your own private party? Click below.

Oistins Fish Fry- Friday Nites

Not mad about music, and enjoy a good fish fry? A great way of mixing with the locals and attending a real Barbadian institution is to go to the Oistins' Fish Fry on a Friday night. Oistins is a bustling fishing town on the South Coast, and is busy most nights, but really comes alive on Fridays. The evening is so popular that The Barbados Tourism Authority features a trip to Oistins on a Friday night in their summer promotional

Bajan Roots & Rhythms, held at The Plantation Theatre, is the only dinner and stage show in Barbados designed to offer visitors a genuine representation of West Indian culture. Bajan Roots & Rhythms, uniquely known for its interactive segments and party atmosphere, affords its guests plenty of opportunities to join in the fun.
This cultural extravaganza is an all inclusive value package, complete with costumes, thrilling choreography, music, song, dance and the red-hot excitement of a fire-eater and flaming limbo.
This provides unrivalled live entertainment, which beautifully and creatively pays tribute to Barbados and it's musical heritage.

The evening begins with the sweet sounds of the steel pan that you can enjoy during your dinner. After dinner sit back and enjoy a spectacular dance show. If you like a challenge join in the fun with the limbo queen and then end the evening with dancing to the music of The Plantation Band.
