Entertainment & Nightlife in Bahamas
 
 
 

General

Hotels have bars and nightclubs. Beach parties and discos are organized regularly. Live entertainment includes calypso, goombay music (traditional Bahamian sound) and limbo dancing. Nightclubs are found in Nassau and Freeport. There are four casinos: one on Cable Beach, another on Paradise Island; on Grand Bahama, there is a casino in Freeport and one in Lucaya. All casinos feature restaurants and live entertainment.

Nassau

Developed in large part in the 1970s, Paradise Island features the Atlantis Paradise Island, a resort that ranks among the largest in the world. It has 3,779 rooms, a mega-casino, golf course, tennis courts and a water-slide pool. And it's growing. If not a resort, it could be its own small city.

Start with its renowned casino – all 1,100 slot machines and more than 90 gaming tables, including roulette, poker and blackjack. But that's only the beginning, because it has what it calls the Entertainment Complex that incorporates nightclubs, restaurants, shopping. Travel agents fawn over Paradise Island, just over a bridge from Nassau proper. The toll is a $1.

The Atlantis showroom has the Sunsation, a stage show featuring everything you would find in a cabaret. The Nassau Beach Hotel on Nassau proper also has an exciting stage show where dancers and singers work to make your heart pump. The Palace Theatre at the Marriott does the same type of dinner-theatre type thing. Don't forget the casino at the Crystal Palace.

Other than Paradise Island entertainment spots, you'll find quite a few fun places in the Bahamas. The Joker's Wild (a comedy club) and the We Place on Thompson Avenue, is where locals make up the clientèle for the most part. There's also tthe Waterloo, a five-bar disco on East Bay Street. Cocktails & Dreams is where you can place your feet in the sand, since it's the only club directly on the beach. If the night still seems young to you but most places are closed, stop into the Drop Off Bar.
