Nightlife in Nassau
Nassau isn't a spring break mecca for nothing. The club scene is nightly and rowdy. Some popular establishments:
Cover charges average $20, although all major hotels sell "passes" for $5. With a pass, cover charge is only $5, so you actually pay $10. Cover charges on weekends can climb up to $45, so it's a good idea to get a pass from your local taxi driver/hotel desk.
You can also opt for an all-inclusive entertainment pass, which will include a schedule. Expect to follow this itinerary with at least 5,000 other co-eds. (It might be a good idea to pick up this schedule even if you don't plan on participating. It will give you a good idea of places to avoid on certain nights.)
Drinks in clubs can get expensive, depending on the club and its location. Many locals "drink up" before going out, to defray this cost. Otherwise they may be found in the parking lots with a cooler. Expect to pay at least $4 for a beer and $5 for a cocktail. The one exception is rum, which is cheap and plentiful. Cocktails with rum at a club will be strong.
Explore every aspect of luxury and decadence that is Aura—a 9,000-square-foot nightclub. Aura is raised off the Atlantis Casino floor, where a grand staircase leads into the nightclub. DJs spin, illuminating the glass dance floor that is surrounded by banquette seating. Two bars, two VIP sections and a private VIP Parlor complete this intimate experience.
Combining the decadence of Las Vegas with the New York and South Beach party scene, Aura brings a new level of style and luxury to nightlife in The Bahamas. From the minute you walk up the grand staircase leading into this 9,000-square-foot nightclub above Atlantis Casino, you’ll be transported to a world of opulence with Aura’s impeccable design. It features a sunken glass dance floor, European-style bottle service, a separate VIP seating area with a personal server as well as an extensive drink menu to choose from, plus a raised DJ booth where some of the best DJs in the world spin stellar beats all night long.
