Aruba nights add excitement to the island's quiet desert island persona. Mingle with locals and tourists at any of the scores of casual beach and pier bars that dot the southwest coast from downtown Oranjestad to the far end of the high-rise strip. Weekly managers' cocktail parties and daily happy hours are island traditions.
Cruises depart from Palm Beach piers; hop aboard for a sunset sail, romantic nighttime interlude or a wild party with rope swing. At resorts, carnival shows and Las Vegas-style revues boast talented dancers and brilliant costumes. Sumptuous outdoor theme night buffets are perfect "stay at home" entertainment. Ten exciting resort casinos offer non-stop after-dark gaming action, lively house bands and exhilarating ambiance.
The high-rise area now rivals downtown Oranjestad for trendy venues and after-hours haunts, from karaoke and martini bars to upscale bistros and casual pubs. The strip comes alive after dark with shops, kiosks, movie theatres, cafés, restaurants and bars. Let loose on a wild and wacky barhopping bus.
