Antigua offers so many ways to unwind during the day, from spa visits to waterside strolls, but some attractions are best experienced after the sun goes down. Though some visitors underestimate the nightlife options, planning for just one visit to a crowded bar or a sultry spot to sip wine, there are a variety of options, especially if you choose a property that offers entertainment and late-night lounges.
The hotels included in these tables are definitely worth considering if you hope to dance and sip cocktails after a busy day of sightseeing. Some are known for keeping their guests entertained on the premises, while others are great for guests who want to be within walking distance of many venues.
Hotels and resorts listed in the table below were chosen as having popular nightlife and entertainment, or for being near popular late-night venues. Starting with the top ranked Jolly Beach Resort & Spa, consider these the best options for night owls; the ratings were created based on a number of factors, including whether they have live shows, lounges, and other exciting amenities on-property or nearby.
Because some night owls view live performance lineups as necessity, availability of entertainment at the hotels is shown below. Bear in mind, however, that hotels in Antigua are known to offer entertainment less frequently during the off season, so be sure to call the hotel for more info if you're expecting to see a show.
