When in Rome… Or, in this case, Trinidad! Discover T&T talked to our roundtable — Penelope Spencer, Laura Dowrich-Phillips, and Nigel Campbell — to get their take on their favourite ways to kick back and enjoy a night out on the town
Whether it’s a basic roadside bar; a swanky bar and lounge carrying live entertainment, gaming options, or the sports fixture of the hour; or a club to keep you pumping all night, we’ll show you where to enjoy the best of Trinidad’s nightlife
It’s Friday night. Or maybe it’s Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday or any other night of the week. And you’re bored! Now, we Trinidadians take boredom very seriously. We have a reputation to maintain as the social mecca of the Caribbean – “liming country”, if you will – and we cannot have our reputation tarnished by any local or visitor claiming to be bored on our watch.
Trinidadians take their nightlife and entertainment very, very seriously. The multitude of bars, nightclubs and lounges, roadside watering holes, multi-level VIP clubs with dazzling lights and sizzling cocktails, shows exactly how serious a business partying is to Trinis. There’s no shortage of possibilities — find your niche and dive in!
