With the vibrant music industry and the warmth of the Jamaican people, Kingston is likely to make for a great tourist destination. This is especially true when it comes to the Kingston nightlife.
Usain Bolt Sports Bar
The bar, located along Constant Spring Road, has a casual dress code and features excellent food and drinks. The vibrant and edgy design of the bar seems to have been inspired by the tracks and records of Usain Bolt, a world-renowned athlete. There is also cutting edge technology at the bar, a factor that you are likely to enjoy when you visit this place for the first time.
This is one of the busiest nightclubs in Jamaica, with revelers being required to go through a metal detector before gaining access. Both locals and foreigners go to the nightclub to enjoy the nightlife of the city. There is a relaxed jazz bar on the ground floor and two floors for dancing upstairs. Although they play mainly Jamaican music, there is also mainstream music to cater to the interests of foreigners. Going to the very top floor will provide you a more intimate dance floor and allow you a view of the city by night. Admission to the nightclub varies depending on the night of the week as well as gender.
Pool Bar at Hilton Hotel
In the early evening, both residents and non-residents go to the pool bar to enjoy live music and have a relaxing drink. You will have different genres of music playing on the different evenings of the week. Since by 10 o’clock they are usually done playing music, you can proceed to enjoy the night at Jonkanoo Club.
This pleasant club operates within the Hilton hotel complex and is a great place to spend time once you have spent your early evening at the Hilton Hotel pool bar. The club runs as a separate franchise and features great music. The dress code is smart casual although metal nights will not require any specific dress code.
This is an adult night club. There are plenty of girls from Ukraine and Russia in the club. If you enjoy private dance sessions, this would just be the right Nightclub for you.
Other Nightclubs in Kingston
Some of the other great bars and nightclubs in the city include Peppers, The Grogge Shoppe and Asylum. The first two are great spots for relaxing, with a formal dress code. Asylum largely plays reggae music, with a little hip hop being mixed up.
