Top 10 Bars You Must Visit in Jamaica

One of the many reasons to choose to travel to Jamaica is how much fun everyone always seems to have as the night takes over. Here are the top ten bars you MUST visit on your vacation to the island to make sure you get to fully experience Jamaican nightlife vibes.

Ivan’s Bar / Negril

Located on the cliffs at the Catch A Falling Star Hotel in Negril, Ivan’s Bar opens up to the public each day at 5pm and will blow you away with 100 candles lit up against the most amazing sunsets for that perfect romantic evening out at the pub.

Blue Beat Ultra Lounge / Montego Bay
More of a nightclub, than bar, but a fantastic place to get great cocktails and listen to all the latest music across almost every genre. Though there isn’t a strict dress code, flip flops or beach cover-ups won’t be the best attire for this modern club.

Flavours Beach Bar / Runaway Bay
Chill out with the locals at this favourite beach bar in Runaway Bay that has music pumping and a lively vibe right on the beach.
Get Here: Main Road, Runaway Bay
Tel: (876) 973-5457

Margaritaville / Montego Bay
Margaritaville edges out the sports bar competition by having all their locations right on the beach. Grab a burger then play on giant floaties and water slides out in the ocean. Then take the party into the night.


Rick’s Café / Negril
Enjoy the world famous sunset after watching expert divers do death-defying flips and tricks from ledges high above the sea before plunging in the deep blues below. Party into the night and try to get there for a night when live music hits the stage.

Pier 1 / Montego Bay
The party doesn’t stop at Pier 1 in Montego Bay with great views and great Jamaican music. The food is good too.

Geejam Bushbar / Port Antonio
Catch a performance of the Jolly Boys at Geejam Bushbar, home of the studio where world greats like Alicia Keys and Amy Winehouse have recorded.

Usain Bolt Tracks and Records / Kingston
He stops by often, you may just catch a glimpse of the fastest man on earth at his sports bar in Kingston. Local celebrities are often found inside grabbing a bite to eat as well.


Pelican Bar / Treasure Beach
Pelican Bar is a must visit simply because of its location, floating in the middle of the sea! If you’re in Montego Bay or Negril, book a tour or catch a cab to St. Elizabeth and check out Pelican Bar. Bring your swimsuit for the coolest Red Stripe Beer ever! More of a daytime bar trip, this one is definitely an off the beaten path and one of a kind experience!
