Party Hotspots – Bahamas Nightlife

While staying in your Island Real Estate vacation rental, the only thing hotter than the gorgeous Caribbean days are the action-packed Caribbean nights. From breezy cocktails on open-air verandas to enjoying cold beers on the high seas with friends to dancing the night away to the pulsing rhythms of steel drums and island melodies, the party in the Bahamas is always going. From dive bars to chic lounges to hip Bahamas nightclub venues, there is something for everyone on Harbour Island and nearby Eleuthera!

Beyond the Reef

Located at the harbor in Dunmore Town, this waterfront bar is a gathering spot for locals and visitors alike looking to enjoy Bahamas nightlife. As the sun slips below the leeward coast, come and make new friends and relax in the island breezes. Sample the delicious food from vendors at the neighboring marketplace, then settle in for the evening and enjoy drink specials all night long.

Elvina’s Bar

The hot spot of Bahamas nightlife and music on Harbour Island, this small one-room watering hole in the heart of Dunmore is renowned for its live acts on Saturday nights and its celebrity-studded open mic nights that have featured Kid Rock, Mariah Carey, the Black Crowes, and Lenny Kravitz in years passed. Talk about a hard act to follow! A musical, cultural, and social institution on the island, the party has been going for 30+ years…but never before 9pm.

Dr. Sea Breeze

For a true taste of the islands, catch Dr. Sea Breeze (aka Cedric Bethel) and one of his live calypso sets at The Rainbow Inn or Sky Beach Club, both located on Eleuthera. Sip a high-end cocktail while swaying to the dulcet tones of his acoustic sets featuring island guitar licks and traditional Caribbean songs.

Daddy D’s

The hippest, hoppingest, and happiest Bahamas nightclub on island, this weekend party spot is the place to be on Saturdays, holidays, and any day you feel like dancing. Owner and resident DJ Devon “Daddy D” Sawyer pumps out pop music, hip-hop, and reggae all night long, and the dance floor really heats up after midnight. Get those moves on the dance floor, and let’s see what you got!

Gusty’s

A wrap-around porch with stunning views of the island’s north end. Sand floors. Pool tables. This is the quintessential beach bar, and we are very happy it is on our beach. Grab a cold one, queue up for a game of pool, and relax, but do be prepared: On weekends, even after the sun has set, the sand stays hot as the dancing ramps up after 10pm.
