Known for its exciting and fun filled nightlife, the Bahamas is a coral-based archipelago with over 700 islands and 2,000 cays that have been tourist hotspots. Life in the Bahamas starts after sunset with its islands all glowing in the dark with their ceremoniously decorated venues.
The Cable Beach is one such spot on New Providence Island that has an edge over other popular destinations like Nassau as a result of the high importance given to safety. Highlights of this beach are the Wyndham Nassau Resort and Crystal Palace Casino. The resort has an 800-seater theater with live energetic entertainment for visitors and a gaming room that can give players a Las Vegas experience in all its authenticity.
The Crystal Palace Casino is the largest on the Cable Beach with almost 51 blackjack tables, seven craps tables, 750 slot machines and a baccarat table. For those who are not entertained by such games, the Cable Beach also has innovatively designed bars and restaurants. A perfect romantic get away, this beach can leave one with a tranquil soulful experience.
While gamblers surely have no shortage at the Bahamas with its innumerable casinos in almost every nook and corner, it does not imply a dull stay for non-gamblers. If nightlife is defined by glitter and shine then the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort and Casino signifies it with its ultra glam, high on the shine décor. A truly unforgettable experience, this resort’s extravagance is combined with its assorted crowd of gamers at the casino and visitors at other social spots. Inclusive of intimate bars, discos and the rib-tickling comedy club, it is a much preferred option of party goers.
The Bahamian fondness for all things beautiful, all things lively and all things pleasurable includes activities like dances and live music that are the essence of its nightlife. As such, local entertainers can add to the whole experience with their music and steel drum bands and create a completely new ambience that contrasts yet merges with the beauty of its islands. Hotels in “Out Islands” usually have such local artists performing and entertaining mesmerized crowds.
Grand Bahama Island's most popular nightlife, including Shenanigan's, is in the heart of Port Lucaya Marketplace, treating visitors to wonderful experiences offered through its local talent in their many customary and risky demonstrations like the fire-eating task. From Musicians playing instruments you probably never heard of, to the Junkanoo street parade, casinos, live entertainment; local fish fries, expensive restaurants and noisy parties to silent getaways, the nightlife in the Bahamas can be a different experience every night!
