A giant pub and club complex featuring six very different bars, Traps is as popular with tourists as it is with Suva’s locals and is a long-standing Fijian favourite. There’s a non-smoking rooftop lounge with a laidback vibe, another bar pumps out the smooth sounds of cool DJs, there are poetry readings by youth groups, and Tuesdays and Thursdays offer live music including jazz.
