Montego Bay Nightlife
You should enjoy the Montego Bay Nightlife, if you can tear yourself away from the beach long enough to get ready!
This famous tourist center has all the nightlife most of us can handle.
Just because the sun has set over Montego Bay doesn’t mean it’s time to retire for the night! Many places in Jamaica are open until the early hours of the morning, so muster your energy and try one of the following for a taste of Jamaican nightlife, Montego Bay style!
The number-one nightspot in Montego Bay is a two-in-one restaurant, Marguerite's Seafood by the Sea and Margueritaville Sports Bar & Grill, Gloucester Avenue, situated just across from the Coral Cliff Hotel. It specializes in moderately priced seafood and margaritas served on a breezy terrace overlooking the sea.
The sports bar and grill features a 33m (110-ft.) Hydro-slide, live music, satellite TV, a sun deck, a CD jukebox, and a straightforward menu of seafood, sandwiches, pasta, pizza, salads, and snacks.
The open-air room contains four bars, several big-screen televisions and a dance floor overlooking the water. Food is very Americanized and includes pizza, hamburgers and sandwiches.
If you haven’t had enough water for the day, enjoy the water-slide and hot tub out back. Theme nights include a Red Stripe fest as well as Karaoke and bikini contests.
Admission is a little higher than other places, but drinks are included in the price!
Royal Stocks, English Pub and Steakhouse is a little piece of England in upscale Half Moon Mall, this authentic pub and eatery is ideal for small functions such as weddings of 100 or less. Owner Steve calls the building style, "European castle/fairytale."
Also come in for the truly great food. House specialties include steaks, seafood, Caesar salads, and of course fish-and-chips. The restaurant is wedged between two five-star properties, The Ritz Carlton and the Half Moon Hotel.
If a nightclub is more your scene, try Pier 1 on a Friday night. The Brewery and Aquasol Theme Park also have DJs of note from time to time so check out what’s happening locally once you arrive in Montego Bay.
Although nightlife in Montego Bay may be at a slower pace than in other Jamaican hot-spots, such as Negril, there’s still plenty to keep you busy until you’re ready to call it a day!
...and as a bonus, here are some things around and about Montego Bay that you may not have considered for your day time interests --->
If you are staying in Montego Bay but feel like leaving the beach or getting out of the city for a while there are some really interesting places to visit just outside Montego Bay.
You can either rent a car, or check if there are official regular excursions available. Some of the attractions include:
Montego Bay Undersea Tours:
The "Coral Sea" may resemble a submarine but it’s actually a boat with an air conditioned underwater viewing cubicle six feet under the surface where you can sit in comfort as the natural underwater world travels alongside you.
Coral, hundreds of different fish, turtles, and sting rays will be amongst the colorful sea-life you’ll see in its natural environment.
Belvedere is a family-owned estate set on one thousand acres of land just minutes away from Montego Bay. This was one of the first sugar cane plantations in Jamaica and is still a working estate.
The owner has opened Belvedere to the public so that touristsl can share the natural beauty of the estate’s rivers and waterfalls, its ruins and exotic plants and birds.
Rocklands Bird Sanctuary:
A visit to Rocklands Feeding Station in Anchovy, only minutes away from Montego Bay, is a must for all bird lovers and bird watchers. Feeding time is 4 pm so if you’re interested in seeing this, don’t be late – but you should check locally for any schedule time changes.
To the east of Montego Bay lies the sleepy town of Falmouth.
This was once the social capital of the island and one of its major commercial centers. You can find evidence of its past splendor in the architecture, not only of the unusual old church and court or town house but also in many of the old Georgian dwelling houses.
Falmouth has its share of tourist attractions so it should be included on your list of possible places to visit.
Just beyond Falmouth lies Rock where you’ll find the amazing Luminous Lagoon. It’s one of the most spectacular wonders to be found in Jamaica.
If possible, schedule your trip for after dark and take a boat ride from Glistening Waters Maria. The water is luminous when agitated and you can see the outlines of fish and streaks of light as they swim around. Words fail to do justice to this great sight. This is one site not to be missed!
Although there’s plenty to do and see in Montego Bay itself, make space in your itinerary for an excursion or two just outside the city – it’s worth the effort, even though you are saving your energies for the Montego Bay Nightlife!
