Entertainment & Nightlife in Grenada
 
 
 

General

Home to the vibrant calypso and reggae music, Grenada offers a good mix of local and international restaurants and bars. Many resorts provide night-time entertainment, such as discos, organised shows and cabarets. While most hotels provide entertainment for guest, particularly during the high season, visitors are made welcome at the bars, clubs and cinemas in and around St George's.

Grenada offers a wide variety of entertainment and visitors are encouraged to take full advantage; such as a visit to Gouyave Fish Friday which takes place in St Dominic and St Francis Streets (close to the entrance of town) in Gouyave on Friday evenings from 6 pm and continuing late into the night, featuring dancing and steel pan music. Seafood dishes are prepared to perfection by well trained and neatly dressed vendors, before your eyes, in a number of mouth-watering ways. The festival is the fastest growing in the Caribbean, catering to as many as 2,000 persons from varied social standings, both local and visitors to the island, on any given evening.

Places to Unwind

Grenada's most popular nightspot is Fantazia 2001 (Morne Rouge Beach). Although it gets progressively rowdier as the evening progresses, it's air-conditioned, with state-of-the-art equipment, good acoustics, and fantastic lights, and plays the best in regional and international sounds. There are live shows Saturday.

Just as fun and a bit less gratuitously rowdy is Club Banana (True Blue), down by the marina. Every Friday and Saturday night it operates a disco from 10 pm to 2 am, charging a cover of $13 to $17. Some visitors have proclaimed Club Banana as the best nightlife hangout on the island.

The Beachside Terrace and The Owl Sports Pub, both at the Flamboyant Hotel (Grand Anse), have an amicable and sometimes boisterous clientèle, a pair of pool tables, two wide-screen TVs, and a penchant for broadcasting cricket or football matches. They're the site of the island's longest happy hour (daily 4-7 pm and again 11 pm-midnight), during which hours prices are reduced by about 40%. Karaoke is featured Thursday and Friday nights beginning around 8:30 pm.

Another favourite is Aquarium Beach Club & Restaurant (Point Salines), which also serves delectable steaks, with a special reputation for its Sunday barbecue specials. From the sprawl of decks open to the trade winds, you can enjoy the lights of St George's Harbour here at night.

For a bit of culture, the 250-seat Marryshow Folk Theatre in St George's (Herbert A. Blaze Street, near Bain Alley), offers performances of Grenadian, American, and European folk music, drama and West Indian interpretative folk dance. The Reno Cinema in St George's hosts many multicultural events as well as showing films. The Grenadian Jazz Society holds concerts several times a year in a number of hotels.
