We will start by being honest enough to mention that we have somehow lost touch with the night scene in Mauritius... most probably because there was apparently not many reasons pulling us into bars and discotheques...
We nonetheless understand that the good addresses kept afloat quality wise and that some newcomers are really worth discovering some with extremely creative concepts and settings.
Kindly consult our nightlife section listing the bars, lounge bars, nightclubs and discotheques.
Another piece of good news is that the night scene seems somehow "cleaner" than a year ago after some interventions from authorities and also owing to the people's choice of favouring the bar lounges as opposed to the heavy-duty discotheques.
The "general information" remains unchanged but worth repeating:
- Grand Bay and Flic-en-Flac still being the main poles for nightlife although there are some exceptionally good addresses in the central region,
- The places we recommend are safe to all those who behave
- Places we do not recommend are not necessarily unsafe but all discotheques require that you keep an eye open and remain in the middle of the road,
- Not all bouncers have your protection in mind or their conception of security is very different to common-sensed people...
The region of Flic-en-Flac on the West coast is the other region that has been improving a great lot in terms of night-life. Flic-en-Flac is somehow more fun than its rival Grand Bay as being closer to the major residential cities of Mauritius, it is the place to be part of a real mix of Mauritians. Several restaurants and late-night addresses are found along the coastal road opposite the public beach. The fact that they are all at walking distance to each other, makes Flic-en-Flac a lively place to be as more people walk along the main road from one place to another.
For those who are not yet aware, we will end by stating that if the other towns and regions are not mentioned here, it is because there is nothing or nearly nothing going on; even in the most important towns...
