Glistening Waters Restaurant and Marina
A short and pleasant boat ride from Montego Bay is Glistening Waters – a luminous lagoon situated along the North coast of Jamaica. Enjoy a peaceful boat ride through the dark marina and marvel as the water lights up before your eyes when touched. Afterwards, take a seat at the Glistening Waters restaurant which is located along the marina. Enjoy one of their speciality dishes which include escovitch fish, fresh seafood, curried goat and Jerk chicken. This is the perfect venue for a break away from the madness of the city.
The Hip Strip
For the real night owls among you there is ‘The Hip Strip’ – located on Gloucester Avenue, this area of MoBay guarantees those who visit it a good time. Grab a bite to eat and then dance the night away as you enjoy the free flowing Red Stripe and rum based cocktails. Some highlights on The Hip Strip include Margaritaville and Pier One.
Blue Beat Jazz & Blues Bar
For Jazz fans in Jamaica there is the Blue Beat Jazz and Blues Bar. Specialising in Asian-Caribbean Fusion cuisine, this venue will keep you going from sunset until sunrise. This bar is well-known for cocktails, especially Martinis, and locals flock here for just that. Visit at the weekend for a lively crowd and good music.
Bobsled Café – Montego Bay Nightlife
Located on Gloucester Avenue the Bobsled Café was set up in tribute to the Jamaican bobsled team who were the basis for the movie ‘Cool Running’ This café specialised in pizzas and on Friday nights runs ‘Jamaica’s longest Happy Hour’, from 7pm until midnight.
