Things to Do in Aruba - Aruba's Nightlife

Aruba's casinos, dance clubs, shows, bars, and beachfront lounges are widely regarded as some of the Caribbean's best, and are just some of the options that keep night owls going till dawn. L.G. Smith Boulevard, along the harbor in Oranjestad, is packed with bars making for a convenient bar crawl.

Several of the island's casinos stay open 24/7, and dance clubs start rolling about midnight and keep going as long as there are customers. Other nighttime activities include current movies, local musical entertainment, and dinner/party cruises and busses.

With two new large shopping malls featuring over 100 dining locations, the Palm Beach strip in the hi-rise resort area has become a popular magnet for nightlife. There are the glitzy resort casinos, multi-screen movie theaters, clubs, water shows and pushcart vendors of all types.

Pick up one of the free island publications (Aruba Nights, Island Temptations, Aruba Experience, Menu, Aruba Events or Destination Aruba) for the latest up-to-date information. Most hotels and tourist spots have at least one of the local English language newspapers, Aruba Today and The News. Don't ignore those colorful promotional pamphlets you'll see at your resort's activities desk. Many of them offer free drinks or discounts on admission.
