These best things to do after dinner in St Lucia show that there’s plenty to enjoy after a day of taking in the blue seas and sunny beaches. Venturing out in the evening, you can find both chill spots and lively party scenes to suit your mood. Music plays a big role in St Lucia’s nightlife scene, with many bars and clubs livened up with the sounds of jazz bands, calypso singers, DJs spinning dance music, reggae performers, and more.

    Most of St Lucia’s nightlife action takes place in and around Rodney Bay village, with its strip lined with bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Be sure to join one of St Lucia’s weekly “jump up” or “fish fry” nights where people gather for a festive street party with a local Caribbean flair.


    Rodney Bay village

    St Lucia’s nightlife hub

    Rodney Bay is the liveliest nightlife area in St Lucia, with a strip of bars and clubs where you can drink, dance and listen to music through the night. Found near the marina full of visiting yachts and many hotels, it brings out a real mix of people.

    Those looking for a lowkey night out in Rodney Bay could just enjoy sipping a local Piton beer at a small open-air bar. Or, if you’re looking to unleash your singing talent, have a look around for bars hosting a karaoke night – a popular night-time activity in St Lucia. For a more dressed-up night out, head to one of the clubs like Q Bar, with its live jazz music and cocktails.

    Location: Rodney Bay, Gros Islet, St Lucia


    Gros Islet Jump Up

    Festive Friday night street party

    Gros Islet Jump Up is a long-running Friday-night street party that offers a loud and lively look into how the locals of St Lucia let loose. As night falls, the barbecues get fired up and several street vendors and performers turn up and turn the village into a vibrant night bazaar.

    Locals and visitors mix, mingle and dance to the sounds of Caribbean beats. Many come to enjoy a taste of the barbecued fish and chicken, enjoyed at the large communal tables scattered along the street. If you’re not here for the food, then go for a rum punch or a beer and settle in for an entertaining evening, St Lucia style.

    Location: Castries-Gros Islet Hwy, Rodney Bay, St Lucia


    Keebees Sports Bar & Grill

    Gathering spot for live sports action

    Keebees Sports Bar & Grill is a fun and friendly spot to unwind in the evenings in St Lucia, just a 5-minute walk from Reduit Beach in Rodney Bay. The open-air bar has a casual setting, with flags from around the world tacked up around the roof and walls.

    Keebees offers drinks specials every evening, and sometimes hosts karaoke nights, salsa dancing events or themed parties. But what many come for is the chance to watch the latest sports match on the big-screen TVs, whether it’s football fans gathering to watch some Premier League football or other sports like cricket or boxing.

    Location: Gros Islet, St. Lucia

    Open: Tuesday–Sunday from 10 am to midnight (closed on Mondays)

    Phone: +1 758-285-1700


    The Cane Bar

    An upmarket St Lucian rum cocktail lounge

    The Cane Bar is the place to go for those seeking a more sophisticated night out on St Lucia. Located at Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, the air-conditioned bar offers a great range of cocktails, and there’s even a “rummelier” on-site to help guide you to the perfect cocktail concoction.

    Rum is, of course, one of the main spirits here, but there’s also a wine list and sake selection to try. The food menu features mostly Asian dishes, with sushi and sashimi among the favourites. The Cane Bar’s dress code is “resort chic”, so make sure to change out of your flip flops before you visit.

    Location: Val Des Pitons Forbidden Beach La Baie de Silence Soufrière, St Lucia

    Open: Daily from 6 pm to 1 am

    Phone: +1 758-456-8000


    Anse La Raye fish fry

    Friday street party with seafood

    Anse La Raye is a small fishing village just south of Marigot Bay in St Lucia. This usually quiet place transforms into a colourful carnival of music and food every week when it hosts the popular Friday Fish Fry.

    Starting at around 7 pm, Front Street is closed to vehicle traffic, and vendors set up tables and tents where they sell grilled fish, lobster, plates of seafood with rice and other local dishes. Big speakers blast the sounds of the live Reggae or calypso bands, and there’s plenty of cold Piton beer to go around.

    Location: Anse La Raye, St Lucia


    Naked Fisherman

    Beachfront club retreat

    Naked Fisherman is set in a gorgeous, out-of-the-way area on the beach of Smuggler’s Cove, just down the hill from Cap Maison resort, on the northern tip of St Lucia. Open all day and well into the evening after sunset (except on Fridays), it’s a good spot to just hide away for a few hours and let the sounds of the waves soothe you while you sip a cocktail or 2.

    Though Naked Fisherman is part of a luxury resort, the ambiance here is more casual, with the bar and dining tables set under a Caribbean-style thatched roof. Those who have dined at the sought-after Cliff at Cap restaurant could wander down to the Naked Fisherman for a nightcap.

    Location: Smugglers Cove Road, Gros Islet, St Lucia

    Open: Saturday–Thursday from 9 am to 10 pm, Friday from 9 am to 5 pm

    Phone: +1 758-457-8694

    Night snorkelling and diving in St Lucia

    Swim with nocturnal sea creatures

    Diving and snorkelling aren’t usually considered to be evening activities, but there’s a fascinating underwater world to discover after dark in the reefs and surrounding seas of St Lucia. Darkness brings out a different set of marine creatures that daytime divers don’t get to see, like certain species of crustaceans, basket stars, parrotfish, squid, and bioluminescent plankton.

    One of the best sites for night dives and snorkel sessions is the shallow reef in front of the Anse Chastanet Resort, where night dive trips are offered at least twice weekly. We strongly urge you to only use organised trips as venturing out into the sea at night alone can be very dangerous.


    Jambe de Bois

    Live jazz in a seaside park setting

    Jambe de Bois is a café and bar found on the beach in St Lucia’s Pigeon Island National Park, well away from any hectic tourist scene. It’s open all day and serves simple meals, but it becomes an even more magical place on weekend nights when you can listen to live jazz while enjoying a frozen cocktail. The setting is “boho-cosy”, with tables and chairs made of driftwood strewn in front of the open-front shack, and with local art for sale inside.

    Getting to Jambe de Bois is a bit of an adventure as you need to pay to enter the national park, then walk down a slightly rough path from the car park to reach it. Or, if you have a yacht moored in Rodney Bay, you could cruise over to the beach in your dinghy.

    Location: Gros Islet, St Lucia

    Phone: +1 758-452-0321


    Rum Therapy Bar and Treatment Centre

    Self-improvement through rum drinking

    Rum Therapy Bar and Treatment Centre adds a playful twist to the “wellness” concept by serving rum concoctions to help punters heal their mind and body. Enjoy cocktails with such names as Wheelchair and Bloody Nose, or you could do some research on the healing powers of beer with a bottle or 2 of Piton lager.

    The bar hosts DJ dance nights, bingo, karaoke and live music nights, and it’s a popular place for groups to have a party. Rum Therapy is found on the waterfront next to the St Lucia Cruise Ship Terminal in Castries.

    Location: Point Seraphine, Saint Lucia

    Open: Tuesday–Sunday from 10 am to 10 pm, Monday from 9 am to 8 pm

    Phone: +1 758-459-0301


    Ultra Lounge

    A DJ dance club in Rodney Bay

    Ultra Lounge is found in the busy nightlife area of Rodney Bay, with DJ dance parties that last well into the wee hours. Here you’ll find a good range of classic cocktails like mojitos, mudslides and rum punch as well as drinks with a local twist like Kwéyòl mimosas.

    Ultra Lounge also has live music nights featuring local performers, sometimes playing along with the DJs. It’s a place where you can flash your cash to get bottle service or book an exclusive VIP area. Each night has a different theme, like Mix and Mingle Sunsets and Two for One Tuesdays.

    Location: Gros Islet, St. Lucia

    Open: Sunday–Wednesday from 6 pm to 2 am, Thursday from 6 pm to 4 am, Friday from 4.30 pm to 6 am, Saturday from 6 pm to 6 am

    Phone: +1 758-458-5872
