Barbados offers so many ways to unwind during the day, from spa visits to waterside strolls, yet some would consider the nightlife scene an attraction of its own. No matter if your favorite venue is a crowded bar or somewhere to discover local music, there are a variety of options, especially if you stay at a hotel where they have entertainment, lounges, and more.

Hotels included in the lists below are worth considering if you appreciate Barbados' beauty during the daytime, but want a "night on the town" experience in the evening. Some are better for guests who prefer not to go off-site for nightlife options, while others are great for guests who want to be within walking distance of many venues.
