Cap-haitien Nightlife, Haiti

Cap-haitien, Haiti - Nightlife 

Tourists visiting the second largest city and the biggest commercial port town in Haiti known as Cap-Haitien, will find it has more to offer them in terms of nightlife than simply true and tried nature of beach-combing by moonlight.

  Luxury hotels and bars in Cap-haiten provide a range of entertainment options:

There are several budget as well as luxury hotels available at Cap-Haitien, which was established during Spanish and French colonial rule and thereafter ruled over by the Americans, thus has many different cultural nuances swept into its modern ethos such as Caribbean and Continental forms of performing arts and live dancing troupe shows put up by the varied people inhabiting this lively island paradise.

While the plentiful hotels dotting the beaches of Cap-Haitien offer bar and restaurant facilities for fine wining and dining according to the discerning tastes of all types of foreign guests, many of those availing luxury cruise-liner holidays with ships docking in the private island of Labadie are not averse to staying on board and enjoying the ‘in-house’ pleasures of a club-house, saloon and private performances by dancers brought along for their amusement by the organizers as opposed to scouting the nightlife in the city.

Thus, while the luxury hotels all host a mini bar en suite for guests at Cap-haitien, such as Cormier Plage, Mont Joli, Auberge au Picolet and Roi Christophe, the more adventurous traveller to Cap-Haitien is likely to find the relaxing sea-breeze and wide, inviting promenades along the bay area a short route towards locating its nightlife, which it rightly holds. The aptly named Cheers and Cafe Cubano both offer a taste of Haitien nightlife that is rocking while Casino Choucouno and Casino El Rancho in neighbouring areas provide capital fun for the intrepid night-tripper.

 Wining, dining and dancing options:

The various pubs and taversn dotting beaches in Cap-haitien offer the scope for a vibrant nightlife that mesmerizes as it pulls in the eager tourist in droves after they’ve had their fun in the sun. The local Barbancourt Rum Distillery is a must-visit by foreign tourists looking for an instant high as well as a glimpse into what goes into their favourite sun-downer, which is a favourite of the islanders here and among the best rum made by one of Haiti’s oldest family of rum distillers.

Weekend hotel bookings in Cap-haitien grow manifold due to the many choices for talent shows, gambling and western music and dance sessions offered by them for patrons.

There’s the wild, frenzied and rhythmic beat of African drum music as well as islander-style dance performances by local girl groups that offers a unique entertainment factor for experiencing Cap-haitien nightlife besides Petionville in close proximity offers a wide range of bars frequently mostly by foreigners and the Crystal Palace Dancing option.

Discos aren’t all that many in Cap-haitien, but places a taxi-ride away like in nearby Barak, Hotel Olaffson, The Regency and Caramel are safe and trendy places to shake a leg - and more!
