For a small island, Barbados has a surprisingly active and energetic nightlife. From fish fries, to rum shops, to beach clubs, Barbados definitely has something for everyone.
The ever popular fish fry known as Oistins is home to some of the freshest and tastiest seafood on the island. Open seven nights a week, Oistins is especially lively on Friday nights, when locals and visitors alike come out in their numbers to enjoy fresh fish accompanied by sumptuous local cuisine and music.
Following Oistins on a Friday night, Harbour Lights is the happening place to be, with the unique option to party the night away on the sand in a safe and carefree environment. At Harbour Lights drinks are free from 9:30pm to 3am, so there’s no need to go anywhere else. Also open on Monday and Wednesday nights, Harbour Lights remains an outright favourite for locals and visitors alike.
On Thursday and Saturday nights, St. Lawrence Gap is always an option, with an entire street lined with restaurants and bars fit for anyone’s fancy.
Similar to St. Lawrence Gap, but on the west coast rather than the south, is Second Street, which caters to a more upmarket crowd with a cluster of restaurants and bars.
