Jamaican Nightlife

Jamaican nightlife has a reputation for being loud and late and perfectly paired with lazy mornings on the beach re-energizing for another night out on the town. With a fun, jovial atmosphere, Jamaican nightlife is accessible to all types of people, but especially those who love to dance into the early hours of the morning. Laid back beach bars by day transform into raucous nightclubs by night with a wide array of music to be heard.

Nightclubs in Negril Jamaica

The nightclubs in Negril, located  mostly along Norman Manley Boulevard, have attracted Bob Marley wannabes for a very long time. This ends up being especially enticing for locals and tourists looking for a good time in the evening and late into the night; there are tons of live reggae acts popping up all over Negril. For three nights each week, Bourbon Beach restaurant and bar features live reggae music. Grab a bite ( seafood, American, or Jamaican available) and dance under the stars by the outdoor beachfront stage. At Mariner's Negril Beach Club there is Jungle, a notoriously wild party spot that welcomes A-listers and regular folk alike throughout the year. The main floor is the place to be; a huge dance floor surrounded by four bars draws in the most lively crowds dancing to a music based on a specific theme each night. Rick’s Cafe on Negril’s west side is as laid back as a Jamaican bar can get yet the cliff-divers performing daily don’t exude such relaxing qualities; they’re too busy jumping, spinning, and diving. The two-story restaurant/bar seems like an average Jamaican haunt, with a typical thatched roof and wooden rails. This cliff-top local gem is set in a scenic cove. It has become famous for cliff-divers but also equally for the great food and atmosphere.
