1. Big Willy's

Sports and special offers

Our all-time favourite bar

Happy hours, live music, a dance floor and sports coverage on three screens… Big Willy’s has it all. Its location in the popular Tamarin Bay, just two minutes from the coast, makes it a great place to stop off for two-for-one cocktails during the week or to spend the evening getting your groove on with DJs in the nightclub at the weekends. The tropical gardens are the perfect place to chill out with a vintage wine and listen to live music – and the food is pretty good bet too.

Views and booze

2. La Vida

Views and booze

A funky restaurant, bar and lounge with a cool European vibe, La Vida is run by the UK-born founder of the popular Shotz drinks. Views stretch from the sea to sugar cane fields from the covered outdoor dance floor with its shisha bar and VIP area. You won’t be left with an empty wallet as the prices reflect those of a bar rather than a nightclub, despite being treated to a set by resident international DJ (from November to January) Matt Howes. Dance all night or dip in for a quick drink.

A tropical treat

3. Banana Beach Club

A tropical treat

The best-known bar in Mauritius, Banana Beach Club is set in the centre of Grand Baie and is loved by locals as well as tourists. Come here for live music – from jazz and blues to rock – and an after-hours DJ seven nights a week, when you can work your way through the cocktail list or try a local chilled beer. The bar’s tropical setting is instantly recognisable by the towering tree in the middle of the bar, offering a cool ambience where you can sit back and even feast on food from the grill.

Immerse yourself in music

For an intimate evening in a refined atmosphere, make your way to the Piano Bar at Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort.

Sip your favourite tipple and nibble on tempting snacks while the sound of piano music fills the air.

Go wild!

5. Les Enfants Terribles

Go wild!

Party the night away in the 'little terrors' nightclub with its dance floor brimming with sociable punters and walls covered in crinkled photos of past fun. The chilled-out lounge area offers a quieter oasis, while the special VIP section overflows with Champagne. An indoor and outdoor venue bringing in a mixed crowd, it is THE place to experience a welcoming local vibe that lasts until the early hours.
