When the sun sets, Barbados’ party central, St. Lawrence Gap, comes alive with music, dancing, and rum punch pouring generously at every club and bar in the area. This beachside spot in Oistins, just south of Bridgetown hosts a street party every Friday at the “Fish Fry”, an outdoor food market.
While by the beach, you’ll find a dense cluster of the island’s hottest and loudest cocktail bars, tiki bars, and nightclubs. But if you want to stay close to central Bridgetown, the boardwalks and beaches along Carlisle Bay are studded with open-air bars, candlelight restaurants, and cafés. You can also check out live performances on the beach at the famous Harbour Lights nightclub.
