Thursday, March 29th, 2012

One of the Caribbean Islands that is part of the ABC Island group is Curaçao with Aruba and Bonaire being the other two. The three are situated just off the coast of Venezuela and is considered to be located geographically outside what meteorologists refer to as the Caribbean “hurricane zone.” The island is an extremely popular tourist destination because it has an abundant and lively nightlife.

And after a hectic day at the beach, sunbathing or participating in a host of beach activities, all you want is unwind by the sea with a drink in your hand or dance away the night. So if you are looking to enjoy the nightlife here, the following locations are considered to be the top pubs and nightlife destinations in Curaçao Island:

Blues – considered one of the more memorable nightlife spots on Curaçao, this bar and restaurant is situated within the Aviva Hotel. It is perched above the water and is packed six nights a week (closed on Mondays). You can listen to live jazz music those nights from 10 pm until midnight every night except Saturdays when the music starts at 9:30 pm and keeps going until 1:30 am. Don’t worry about paying a cover charge – there isn’t one.

Mambo Beach – one of the best pubs on the beach with food and music that is equally as good. They show some classic movies on the slower nights each week. Live salsa music plays on Sunday nights so you should expect the place to be crowded with local and traveling revelers alike. Mambo Beach is a short cab ride from Breeze’s Resort.

Asia de Cuba – live Cuban music is the ticket here. The cuisine is Pan-Asian and the décor matches the menu. You can sit at the bar or a high-top table that borders the dance floor. Either ways, you are bound to enjoy your evening here complete with dance, dining, and drink to keep you occupied until the wee hours.

Sopranos Piano Bar – as the name implies, this establishment was named after the famous HBO TV series. Saturday nights are Mafia Nights so dress up like a mobster and get a free drink for doing so. There is live music provided by a gentleman who plays some classic tunes on his piano and he encourages you to sing along while he is performing.

You will also find that there are a number of casinos if you prefer doing a bit of gambling instead of dancing the night away. Some of the better establishments are the Princess Casino located in the Breezes Curaçao resort and the Emerald Casino situated in the Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort. Be sure to check these out whenever you are vacationing on the island.
