Aruba Nightlife

You simply must check out the exciting Aruba nightlife on the island. Whether you had a totally relaxing day in the sun, an active day enjoying water sports, or an adventurous day exploring the island, you hopefully still have energy left to engage in the exciting Aruba nightlife.

You may choose to try your luck in one of Aruba’s many thrilling casinos, or take a magical sunset dinner cruise with your sweetheart.

Maybe you would prefer to go bar hopping on one of Aruba’s exciting party buses, or visit the pier bars along the beach.

If you are Aruba gay and are looking for nightlife that includes a gay bar, you could spend a fun evening at Jimmy's Place in Oranjestad.

You could take in a movie or go bowling. If you prefer being entertained you could purchase tickets to have dinner and see a show.

There are party cruises that include dinner and dancing, or you could drop in to experience some of the exciting cafes and cocktail lounges found all around the island.

Some of the hotels have evenings set aside for manager’s cocktail parties, beach barbecues, or movies on the beach or by the pool.

To truly have the Aruba nightlife experience, one evening you should take a walk around the Paseo Herencia Mall located in the Palm Beach area, in front of the Holiday Inn. It is an old village style plaza surrounded by world class shopping, dining, and state of the art cinemas. You’ll be impressed by the nightly liquid fireworks show and the musical performances.

Keep in mind the fact that you are not in Las Vegas! You will not hear frequent bells and whistles going off from machines of jackpot winners.
