1 Experience Marina Nights

At this enticing happy hour at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club on Hamilton Harbour, you can relax on mod furniture along the dock while you enjoy cocktails, appetizers and a spectacular sunset.

2 Cosy Up To A Beach Bonfire

On the dramatic, rock-strewn eastern tip of the island, Tobacco Bay Beach's "Sunsets, Bonfires and Bohemia" event features a roaring fire, happy hour specials and live music. The summer-only event attracts locals and visitors alike.

3 Hop On A Glass-Bottom Boat Cruise

You'll see a different kind of nightlife – illuminated coral and fish – on a Bermuda Triangle Night Glass-Bottom Boat Cruise with Kirk's Adventures. The captain cleverly narrates the trip into the Bermuda Triangle, and there's a bar serving rum drinks onboard.

4 Chill Out at Elbow Beach

Every Friday night, the Big Chill bash takes to the sand for a celebration under the stars at Elbow Beach. DJs spin and local musicians perform on the Sea Breeze Terrace at the Elbow Beach Bermuda resort. There's also a menu of sushi, tapas and cocktails.

5 Take Off On A Cocktail Sunset Cruise

An evening cruise aboard the elegant vintage Über Vida celebration yacht means you can order from the full bar (serving Champagne, wines and tropical cocktails) while taking in the setting sun from the deck. DJs spinning relaxing beats add to the vibe.

6 Sip Cocktails On a Secluded Cove

7 Sip Drinks On A Pirate Ship

Bermuda's only floating bar, Calico Jack's looks like it sailed straight out of Pirates of the Caribbean. The pirate-theme watering hole offers happy hour specials, occasional fire-stunt shows and a hopping dance floor.
