Ocho Rios Nightlife
More Ocho Rios Nightlife
Ocho Rios is home to an array of edgy, sizzling nightclubs. Many are even too edgy to suggest for a honeymoon trip, but from the James Street “Reggae Strip” to the bars and discos on Main Street, night owls still have their work cut out for them here.
Many bars are distinctly popular with locals, and others more so with tourists. A few have more overlap of locals with visitors, and it’s these that offer the best chance to experience a night of fun with a more local flavor.
Nightclubs are a favorite venue for small-time crooks like pickpockets, so as in all areas after dark, stay smart, stay aware, stay vigilant, and only bring the cash you need. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, check out a few of our Ocho Rios honeymoon nightlife favorites below!
- OCEAN’S 11.
Attracting a diverse mix of locals and tourists from around the world, Ocean’s 11 is a waterside bar and club with modern, metallic furnishings and awesome karaoke nights on Tuesday. Sit right on the docks or at the bar itself to be closer to all the action.
Address: Watering Hole, Lot #6, Fisherman’s Point Row
- JIMMY BUFFETT’S MARGARITAVILLE.
With free shuttles to and from most Ocho Rios hotels, a night of food and fun at Jimmy Buffett’s is a no-brainer. This family-friendly restaurant transforms into an adults-only nightclub after hours. Dance to live bands and DJs, order a drink from a swim-up pool bar, soak in the rooftop hot tub or take a ride down their 100-foot waterslide. It’s one part anything-goes adult fun, and one part letting your inner child run wild – a carefree honeymoon night is always on the menu at Jimmy Buffett’s when the sun goes down.
Address: Turtle Beach Rd.
Another local favorite, Strawberry’s has a sports bar and restaurant serving local food, and a disco upstairs open from Friday to Sunday. You might even see staff from your hotel here, just don’t mistake them for a Strawberry’s staff member – they’re out for a drink and a good time just like you! There’s no cover charge here, so it’s a good place to start the night with a drink amongst the locals before seeing what else the night has to offer.
Address: 6 James Ave.
- THE LITTLE PUB.
Excellent food, live music, karaoke and cabaret nights, great DJs, and sports on big TVs…Ocho Rios’ Little Pub has a bit of everything, making it worth a definite look.
Address: 59 Main St.
This edgy nightclub certainly isn’t as wild as Jamaica nightclubs can be, but it’s probably as close as honeymooners would want to get! This is an Ocho Rios nightlife spot where you’ll see how the locals party. You’ll see tight securtity at the door but by the time you get partying to the great mix of reggae, hip hop and more, the only thing you’ll notice is how much fun everyone is having.
Address: 70 Main St.
Reliably excellent for dancing, Silk’s is a favorite for its unlimited drinks, good-sized dance floor, safety, and upscale yet party-hearty crowd of locals. Silk’s has been a well-established area favorite for the Jamaican crowd, making it a good place to mingle with Ocho Rios residents and maybe even make some new friends!
Address: Cutlass Bay, Shaw Park Ridge Rd, Shaw Park Beach Hotel & Spa
