Nightlife?

Hi there,

I am going to Aruba in July and have researched online for nightlife and a few dance clubs / bars have been listed. Can anyone confirm if there actually is a nightlife in Oranjestad??

Looking forward to lazing around on the beach etc but may decide to hit a club one night!

Thanks in advance :-)

1. Re: Nightlife?

Are you staying in Oranjestad? There are some bars and clubs there but Palm Beach has more options.

If you are right in town then ''Local Store'' is a great open air bar on the strip, second floor. Bands/DJs or both, https://www.facebook.com/LocalStoreAruba

Well things are much better in the nightlife department this past year. I think it has a lot to do with the explosion of EDM in the last 2 years.

Confessions night club, www.facebook.com/ConfessionNightClubAruba , HOUSE/LATIN HOUSE/HIP HOP, on Palm Beach across from The Radisson. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScRPQ6wsukE

GUSTO! GREAT BAR AND STAFF, Perfect mix of local and tourist. http://www.facebook.com/gustoaruba?fref=ts EDM, TRANCE, HOUSE, Any night but with most places it's Starts to heat up on Wednesday through Saturday. Still, earlier in the week is still fun just not as crowded and the night might end at 1pm. This one is small but my favorite, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-H--J6j36E Across the street from The Radisson on Palm Beach.

Sand Beach, Across from The Hard rock on Palm Beach at Brickel Bay hotel. This is an open air bar with a stage and dance floor that has bands/DJs or both. https://www.facebook.com/sandbar.aruba…

Nikky Beach Club, facebook.com/pages/…327053684034748 Only go to Nikky if they are brining in Dutch DJs on the weekend that you are there. Check before you go or ask the bartenders at Gusto if there is anything cool happening. It's also a great place for beach/pool/drinks/food/music during the day.

Also go hang at Moomba beach bar on Sunday Starting around 7PM, could be a band earlier and a DJ later or both, This placee rocks till late on Sundays .http://moombabeach.com/component/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

There is always Senior Frogs http://www.facebook.com/senorfrogsaruba to break up the night. It's 20 feet from Gusto so you can always check out both throughout the night.

Do a little research and you will know what nights are promoting what your looking for, always ask the bartenders whats going on.

After hours spot, http://www.millresort.com/en their outdoor bar heats up from 1pm until sunrise most nights but weekends go harder! . It's mostly the local staff from all the bars and restaurants plus Dutch students.

This gig just started a few months ago and finally The Hard Rock is booking bands, this guy is a guitar player that plays solo gigs but he finally has a classic rock band together, go check them out, it's across the street from The Radisson, www.facebook.com/photo.php…

Cafe Chaos http://www.facebook.com/chaosaruba?fref=ts Mostly live music and a good spot if you are staying in town, bands don't come on until 11 or so.

Here is the Facebook pages of a few bands, find out where and when they are playing by friending them.

Excellent Reggae band http://www.facebook.com/M.C.arubareggae

facebook.com/pages/ERNESTO-FERRO/357774365076

My favorite, www.facebook.com/Acoustic.soul.aua?fref=ts

Another great Reggae band https://www.facebook.com/honeypotaruba…
