Bermuda nightlife

Although nightlife in Bermuda is loosening up, wild is not the word for the island. A few years ago, the options extended to drinking at a pub with locals or drinking at a pub with tourists. These days, there are serene cocktail lounges and cozy wine bars that add a dose of urban sophistication to the mellow island vibe. Postmidnight, after a few earlier stops, the locals also love dance clubs. The few available—like LV and Café Cairo—are thumping and packed to the rafters. Expect lines and bouncers.

Hotels also provide an after-dark scene in Bermuda. Thanks to the banking industry, the standard of living in Bermuda is very high. So unlike on other islands, where locals never venture into overpriced resorts, Bermudans actually think of inflated tourist joints as affordable. On Fridays, Elbow Beach gives over its normally staid cigar bar to a wild salsa party—the room is so full with dancers and music and laughter you can hardly make it out to the terrace to sip your cocktail. Speaking of cocktails, the national drink is the Dark and Stormy, a mixture of dark rum and a local soft drink called ginger beer. It is poured, almost universally, with a heavy hand and tastes not at all potent. Be glad it's illegal for tourists to drive a car on island…be very glad.
