St. Lucia’s Nightlife- Great Things Happen After Dark
While there is more than enough to see and do during the day in St. Lucia, the fun doesn’t stop just because the sun goes down. No matter what your speed, St. Lucia has a nightlife option just for you.
Explore Rodney Bay Village
If you’re looking for St. Lucia’s top nightlife hotspot, look no further than Rodney Bay Village. Hang and dance and drink with the locals at one of the nightclubs and bars on the village strip, where you can find everything from live music to karaoke and more. If music isn’t quite your thing, Rodney Bay Village still has you covered with a wide range of restaurants ranging from local cuisine to Mexican, Chinese, barbecue, steak, and more.
Gros Islet’s Friday Night Street Party Is Not to Be Missed
Steeped in a more than 50 year tradition, the Gros Islet Street party takes place at sunset every Friday Night (except Good Friday). Held rain or shine, the street party is a great way to mingle with the locals and experience St. Lucian culture at its most exciting. Arts and crafts vendors sell locally made wares, barbecues crop up everywhere, live music fills the streets, and your stomach and heart will have an experience like you’ve never had before. Enjoy freshly barbecued chicken and fish while you dance the night away and watch fire jugglers and other performers. If you’re looking for big excitement, you’ll definitely find it here.
Tantalize the Taste Buds at the Anse La Raye Fish Fry
While Anse La Raye’s fishermen spend their days at sea catching the best the Caribbean has to offer, they spend Friday nights bringing those catches to locals and travelers alike. Every Friday evening, local musicians and impromptu cafes begin to line the streets of this lovely village as everything from lobster and crab to snapper, barracuda, and more make their way into the cooking pots set up along the beach front. Enjoy a delectable meal of the freshest catches on the island while enjoying the music, entertainment, and company of the island’s friendly locals.
Want More Seafood? Check Out the Dennery Seafood Fiesta
About halfway down the eastern coast of the island is a beautiful village called Dennery. Home to a beautiful waterfall and well worth the drive, Dennery plays host to a very worthy Saturday night tradition in the form of a seafood fiesta. Every Saturday night, the locals relax and mingle with travelers as they set up vendor shops outside the local bars and rum shops and prepare incredible seafood for all to enjoy.
Jump Into a Real Volcano- Night Bash Tour
Of course, loud music and parties aren’t for everyone. If you want to keep exploring but want something a little quieter or more romantic, check out the Night Bash tour from Real St. Lucia Tours. Here, you get the chance to take a dip in a real volcanic mud bath in the only known drive-in volcano in the entire world!!!! There are showers for cleaning off afterward, so bring a towel and your sense of adventure. Locally legendary Piton Beers and other beverages are provided, and this excursion is an absolute must when visiting St. Lucia.
Staying In? Hire a Private Chef and Create Your Own Nightlife
Let’s be honest. Sometimes after a long day exploring paradise you want to keep experiencing new things but you don’t have the energy to leave your villa. That’s where private chef service comes in. All villas by Janus include the option to hire a private chef, and we highly recommend that you do. What could possibly be a better end to your day than having a renowned chef come to you, prepare a gourmet meal, and even clean up after while you take a dip in the pool or relax under the stars?
