A Friday Night Out in Bermuda
Bottoms up! It’s officially holiday season and July is when the nightlife scene really “turns up” here in Bermuda. With Cup Match just around the corner, party fever is sweeping the nation and rum-infused cocktails (plus rhythmic beats) are the only suitable remedy. That means more options for clubbing, parties, booze cruises and concerts, this month than any other time of year. But if you are the type who doesn’t like fixed plans and would rather go with the flow to see where the night takes you, then try this for a fun and flexible Friday night out…
Start on the water…
Imagine Happy Hour on a beautiful yacht with good-looking people, a full bar, and funky music. That’s basically the UberVida experience for you in a nutshell. Every Friday night, this notorious party boat hosts 3 cruises which are open to the public and free of charge. There are two Mini Cruises, each 90 min long, from 6-9pm. They are the perfect way to start off the night, taking you on a elegant cruise through paradise lakes with ever-changing views. The last cruise is a little more up-tempo, starting at 10pm, the Ibiza Cruise lasts till midnight. Reservations: ubervida.net
Then check out town….
The city is a great place for bar-hopping and Friday is the best night for that. There are a lots of bars and clubs to check out on Front Street. We suggest you start at The Pickled Onion, which you’ll find literally across the street from where the UberVida docks. It boasts great food, original cocktails, musical entertainment and a lively dancefloor. Reservations: 295 2263
Or catch a cab elsewhere.
If you’re not ready to give up the ocean view for clubbing in the city, then take a cab straight to Elbow Beach to catch the The Big Chill at Sea Breeze Terrace. The Big Chill are a travelling act, featuring a soulful vocalist, one awesome House DJ and a skilled guitarist. Wherever they go, they coax the crowd into freeing up, and getting down on the dancefloor. Until midnight, you can see them at Sea Breeze Lounge, the perfect setting for this chilled-out event. No matter where you turn, you have a stunning backdrop of the beach in plain view to enjoy while you sip on their fresh fruit cocktails. Reservations: 232 3999
