Kingston Nightlife

After a long day enjoying in the Caribbean sunshine, what could be better than working up a sweat in one of Kingston's hottest nightclubs? Jamaicans love to dance and it doesn't take long for the rum to get flowing and the party to really kick off.

Most of the nightlife is centred around the tourist areas, but the most popular strip is without a doubt Knutsford Boulevard in Kingston 5, where the highly popular Asylum nightclub, synonymous with Kingston's hip and happening party scene, attracts revellers of all kinds. Quad is also hot on the club scene, with a jazz café, nightclub and Voodoo Lounge, perfect for shaking a tail feather. A variety of music bars and clubs offering all kinds of music abound, with everything from reggae, rock, jazz, latin and house to keep those hips shaking until the early hours.

Kingston can be dangerous after dark so it might be worth finding out where to go from your hotel before heading out for a big night. Walking at night is not recommended, and it is far better to take a registered taxi.
