Nightlife In Guyana - Sheriff Street Camp Street - Buddy's
Guyana's party scene caters to everyone's nighttime entertainment needs. One of the most visited places is known as "The Street That Never Sleeps" or it's proper name "Sheriff Street". This is the place that you want to be! In 1996 a group of business owners on Sheriff Street coined the term for the street: "Sheriff Street neat and sweet, where the tourists meet". There are quite a few clubs on Sheriff Street such as:
-Blue Iguana (in Albertown)
If dancing isn't your thing then you may want to check out Buddy's Pool Hall (also on Sheriff Street). On any given night you can find a pool competition here and anyone is welcome to participate. There are also rows of other small bars and restaurants that line Sheriff Street that you can readily check out.
Another street that you have to check out is "Camp Street". This is where the famous Jerry's Restaurant and Bar resides. It is most popular on Friday as a club scene and on Saturday night as a Karoke scene.
If you like to salsa and merenge there is a club for that too! "Le Meridien" is a club located in the prestigious Pegasus hotel and has a very mature crowd.
If you are into Indian music then you have to check out "Bollywood Nightclub" located between Vissengen Road and Parika.
For a more relaxing atmosphere you can check out "The Palm Court Restaurant and Bar" on Main Street. This place highlights many of the local Guyanese talents and it is great to kick back and relax with a few friends and have a couple drinks. "Bistro 176" located at the Cara Suites on Middle Street is also an excellent and classy spot to relax and have drinks.
For a bar with a view you have to check out "Celina Restaurant" as it has a great ocean view.
And we must save the best for last, Mashramani! It is one day that Guyanese truly look forward to, Mash Day. It is similar to the carnivals throughout the Caribbean. The music is generally a mixture of Soca, Calypso and Chutney. Most people participate by adorning themselves in elaborate costumes, however, if this isn't your style and you still want to represent you can get your chutney soca tshirts from CarnivalTees.com.
There are many things to do in Guyana and remember to be safe when going out.
