Admit it. Sometimes tequila-shooting madness is the true antidote to civilization. And if that’s what you’re looking for on a Bahamas vacation, we think these are the best bars for you.
Senor Frogs became an insta-hit with the cruise ship and
college crowd when it opened about four years ago. It’s always busy, tipping over the edge into screaming, table-dancing,
tequila-shooting madness on weekends and all of spring break. If you’re
a college student looking to party — or if you just want to, ah, party
with college students — this is your spot.
Cocktails & Dreams also caters to a wild, younger crowd.
(And remember, the legal drinking age in the Bahamas is 18, so when we
say "younger," we mean "teen-age.") It’s the only Nassau bar located
right on the beach. The 21-and-under local contingent likes this place
just as much as the cruise ship visitors.
On Sundays and Thursdays, the place to be is Club Fluid. It’s
casual, fun, and has a mixed crowd. Fifteen dollars at the door gets you all you
can drink. Apparently, Fluid started the $15 promo in order to compete
with another club called Charlie’s, which is just down the road. Their ploy is working, too — in-the-know tourists put this club at the top of their to-do list.
