Curacao’s Party Scene

Curacao’s exciting party scene is scattered all over the island, but we have the inside scoop on where all the action is- day and night. Just follow our lead to find all the fun!

Pietermaai: something for every party style

This trendy district offers so much after dark. Find outdoor live music at Mr. Porter Street Café or explore the surreal décor of Mundo Bizarro which has hot salsa dancing to live music and Mosa/Caña gastro bar also has a lively Latin/Caribbean vibe. Or party throwback style at BKLYN for 90’s hip-hop. Tuesday nights the young Dutch party people gather at Bar P to raise the roof with the island’s hottest DJs. And Friday nights the Saint Tropez luxe infinity pool bar club brings best DJs to the scene.

Mambo Beach Blvd: surfside party central

Mambo Beach Blvd is a multilevel complex of bars, restaurants, and shops, right on the sea. It’s party central day and night. Barefoot barhop to discover so many places side-by- side. Friday is the most popular happy hour day, but it’s Wednesday nights when the big party blowouts take place with the chic Madero Ocean Club. Also check out Chill Beach Bar & Grill, Rileks, and Hemingway for unique party styles. Friday nights, it’s barefoot socializing time for the locals at Bonita Beach Club where you can enjoy delectable tapas and drinks in a chill laid-back setting to welcome the weekend. And look for Don Caribe Cigar Lounge in the boulevard for a fabulous selection of top- quality Cuban cigars to celebrate in style. Or party indoors in exotic style at Live 973 Dance & Night Club also on the Blvd.

Right next door to Mambo Beach, you’ll find a separate entrance to a shining smile of lovely white sand and clear shallow waters known as Toucan Beach for three separate beach clubs each with their own signature vibe and style. For laid-back bohemian luxury, Mood Beach Club is a tropical oasis for sushi and craft cocktails and mood music that caters to the beautiful people. And Cabana Beach Club, famous for their wine and dine Wednesdays, VIP beachside service, deluxe cabanas and upscale entertainment is right beside them. Next, is Wet n’ Wild and as the name suggests a party barefoot in the sand spot for wild happy hours old school style. Switch it up depending on your mood, even all in the same night, it’s the best of all possible worlds in one spot.

Off the beaten path places
New to the downtown entertainment scene is 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill in the open-air section of the Renaissance Mall & Rif Fort. Enjoy their trademark margaritas, double happy hours daily, and rollicking events there. Feeling more laid back? Head to historic Fort Nassau’s terrace bar is a romantic perch to view the sunset and the city lights at night. Curacao Marriott Beach resort’s Zala Gastro Lounge has also become a new hotspot for creative drinks, gourmet bites, happy hours, and special events, too. But Thursday nights it’s all about Punda Vibes that really lights up the town with music, cultural exhibitions, dancing, pop- up bars and even fireworks for a great street party. In Saliña is Landhuis Chobolobo the distillery where you can see where the famous Curacao liqueur is made and sample their signature cocktails in their historic courtyard. You can also go off the beaten path to discover Landhuis Brakkeput Mei Mei in a lovely outdoor courtyard.

 Jan Thiel Beach: party central Saturdays

This cool collection of clubs, bars, and dining spots dotted around a beautiful manmade beach attracts sun worshippers by day and party-hearty people by night. It’s also an ideal spot to catch a superb sunset at places like Zest Beach Café with a fun ‘Spritz Happy Hour” and DJ on Fridays. But it’s their big Saturday beach parties that are famous island-wide. The action is anchored at Zanzibar but there are all kinds of different musical flavors for barefoot dancing for different vibes. Hungry? Hit Tinto Bar Y Cocina for Latin American-style shareables, killer good cocktails, and glorious sunsets. Need a break from all the action? Seek out Koko’s, an enchanting escape steps away. Also in Jan Thiel Bay, you’ll find lots of cool happy hour action and events at Papagayo Beach Club.

Join the Fuik Baai Floating Party on Sundays!

Sundays at Fuik Baai is one of Curacao’s most unique gatherings accessible only by boat! It’s a huge floating party with all types of water vessels full of lively folks dancing aboard to all kinds of music, floating in inflatables, and socializing right on the sea. The boats all congregate together side by side so you can hop from party to party with ease! Find some water transportation to attend (there are tickets to party boats available,) it’s a superb local experience not to be missed. But if you really want to do it in high style, plan your own luxury charter with Living Life Boat Trips, their sleek vessels can take up to ten people.

Happy Partying!!
