Bermuda Nightlife

Bermudians love to drink. That's the title of a popular local song, and it hits the nail right on the head. Yes, the island that gave the world the Dark ’n Stormy and the Rum Swizzle might not have the largest selection of hot spots in which to party the night away, but what Bermuda lacks in venues it makes up for in attitude.

Tourists, expats, and locals all mix together to create a

melting-pot social scene, especially on Friday nights—the unofficial party day for just about everyone living on the Rock. The vibe is civilized but still fun and friendly, and if you're not sure where you want to go, just ask around; people will be more than happy to give you their thoughts—they might even buy you a drink!

If you prefer your nightlife to have more culture than rum concoctions, there's still plenty to do. City Hall provides a venue for visiting artists on an ad hoc basis. Dramatic productions take place across a variety of venues—anywhere from a hotel auditorium to the back of a Front Street pub.

For a rundown of what's hot and happening in Bermuda, pick up the Bermuda Calendar of Events brochure at any Visitor Information Centre. The free monthly guide also lists upcoming island events and can be accessed online at The Bermudian ($6.90), a quarterly magazine, has a calendar of events, as does RG magazine, which is included free in the Royal Gazette newspaper every two months. This Week in Bermuda, another free magazine, describes arts and nightlife venues. The Bermuda Sun newspaper has a "Scene" section on Friday, which includes an events calendar ( It's also a good idea to check or for upcoming show information. And to prove there’s plenty to do in Bermuda (if you know where to look), the Nothing To Do In Bermuda website is updated regularly (

For recorded event information, dial 974. Because the arts scene in Bermuda is so casual, many events and performers operate on a seasonal or part-time basis. Bulletin boards are also good places to check for upcoming events.
