Nightlife in Aruba!

Aruba has something to offer every type of night owl, in my humble opinion! Whether you're looking to relax with a cocktail by the beach, dance the night away at a pulsating nightclub, or embark on a festive party bus, this Caribbean gem has it all. 

This spot is an absolute vibe in downtown Oranjestad.  Located 2 blocks behind the Renaissance Wind creek Marina hotel, this shouldn’t be missed for fancy cocktails and good vibes.  Open late, make reservations.  Be sure to follow their social media for their parties-they throw a good rager every once in awhile and you need to be “in the know” and get tickets ahead of time.  They have a “hidden nightclub” on the roof!!

Live music Tuesday-Sunday.  This restaurant is stunning, open air with trees everywhere, super sexy.  There is a bar/lounge area as well.  Friday & Saturday night is all house music and open late!

The front of this hidden gem behind Fat Tuesdays in Palm beach looks like a clothing store.  The only giveaway it’s something different is the gorgeous woman with a clipboard standing in front. Be sure to make a reservation here as there are only a few tables and bar seating.  It’s very cozy & sexy!  Dress nice here, no beach attire or flip flips allowed:) 

Awesome beach bar on a pier in Palm beach. Take the path to De Palm pier from the street, between the RIU and the Hilton, all the way to the beach!  Vibes are on point.  Live music every night.  Happy hour specials & singers daily from 5-6pm and 10-11 pm (extended during high season to 5-7pm).  They sing cover songs and everyone sings along and dances!  Live bands on Tuesday (Joy Ride Band) , Friday and Sunday nights (Travel Session band).  Karaoke on Wednesday and Saturday nights, DJ on Thursday nights!

This place is great for happy hours and hookahs! They have excellent specials daily and they have the delicious frozen drinks that you can mix and match! And don't worry, you can take it to go & walk around with your drinks on the strip!

Located right behind Fat Tuesdays in Palm beach, Gusto is THE place to see and be seen in Aruba. It's not just about drinks; it's about an unforgettable experience! Voted Aruba's number one bar/club three times in a row, Gusto knows how to keep the party going. Happy Hour from 6-10pm, where drinks are half price and beers are just $4. Get ready to groove to the beats of the best local and international DJs, with three distinct areas to dance the night away: the Terrace, Inside Club, and their exclusive VIP sections.

Located behind Salt & Pepper in Palm Beach.  Opens at 9pm, happy hour 9-11pm.  Great music, lots of dancing!  Open until 3am Friday & Saturday, closed Sunday & Monday. 

2 level Outdoor dance club in Palm Beach, around the corner from Daniel’s and Gianni’s and in front of Papia Mia.  This place is a blast!   Sometimes they have live music.  Open every night at 4 pm, open until 1 am during the week and 3 am on weekends!  Happy hours from 5-7pm and 11-12pm.  Good vibes and fun dancing! 

This U shaped bar located in the lobby of the Marriott Stellaris has excellent sushi and live music almost every night.  While it’s an older crown here, everyone will have fun.  Tuesday and Friday nights get especially busy with Amy Sorino singing fun cover songs!  

This fun spot is right on the beach in Palm beach between the Holiday Inn and the Marriott resorts.  This is THE SPOT for huge events and beach parties with live DJ’s.  When MooMba throws a party, people show up and have a blast!  Live band on Sunday nights is always a good time!

Located in Eagle beach, this comedy clubs is open November-April and has rotating comedians!

Located in Palm Beach, next door to Hooters.  If you like country music, this is your spot!  Grab a mic and sing along, bartenders are awesome and welcoming and dancing on the bar is encouraged!  Open nightly from 6pm-1am, open until 3am on weekends!

Open air nightclub with sing along piano music in palm beach across from the Barcelo and next door to Casa Tua.  Rotating piano guests will make sure you have a good time singing along to hit songs!  Open daily from 5pm-1am.
