Nightlife & Casino's
Generally, nightlife in Nassau and on Cable Beach resembles a charming version of 1920s tourism, with the major resort hotels hosting a variety of bars and clubs. The biggest "floor show" in town is Kings and Knights at the Nassau Beach Hotel, where King Eric and his Knights perform steel drum music with limbo and fire dancing, while the Drumbeat Club on West Bay features Junkanoo music and limbo as well. Every hotel on Cable Beach has its own disco, with the most lively being the Fanta-Z Disco at Sandals. Also popular is the bar at Cafe Johnny Canoe on Cable Beach, and Conch Fritters on Marlborough Street, across from the British Colonial Hotel. Major dance clubs include The Zoo, west of Nassau, the Rock and Roll Café, on Cable Beach, and the new Bahama Boom Beach Club downtown near the wharf. The Silk Cotton Club on Market Street is famous for its jazz music, while Cocktails and Dreams is a quiet nightclub on the beach, just west of the British Colonial. Smaller clubs include the Pacific Bar on Victoria Street, Millie's Place just off Devaux Street and the Drop Zone, catering to locals and tourists alike.

Nassau Facts

Special Information
Drive on the left! Road conditions throughout Nassau and Freeport are generally good. Road travel in other parts are limited

Climate
The trade winds that blow almost continually throughout The Bahamas give the islands a warm, agreeable climate which varies little year round. The Bahamas have a temperate climate ranging from 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer to 70-80 degrees in the winter. Sea surface temperatures vary between 74 degrees in February and 84 degrees in August.

The 685 acres of Paradise Island are connected to the city of Nassau by two 600-foot bridges. The island is developed almost exclusively to accommodate travelers, with resorts, hotels, restaurants, shops, a golf course, an aquarium, and a casino rounding out the amenities. Very few private residences exist on the island.

Area Info
Originally a harbour base named Charles Town, Nassau is the modern-day face of the Bahamas, visited by most everyone who comes down this way, not least for its service as a transport hub. Though dingy in parts, enough historical flavour has been preserved to make such a stop here worthwhile. Much of this atmosphere comes from its development during the so-called Loyalist period from 1787 to 1834, when many of the city's finest colonial buildings were built. Before this build-up, Nassau had largely been a haven for pirates, privateers and wreckers, situated as it was on key shipping routes between Europe and the West Indies.
