As my friends can verify, I love the clubbing and the party scene. The dancing, drinking, and hooking up are just a few of the joys of going out clubbing. I am happy to say that I’ve partied in at least 25 countries (and still counting!), so I guess I have enough experience to share with you the readers about the clubbing and drinking scene found here in Mauritius, and especially in Grand Baie where I live.
The Grand Baie nightlife has evolved drastically during the recent years. From a sleepy city of 1-2 clubs, today one can find about 10 night clubs and many more active pubs.
Most of the “action” is during weekends, when both local and tourists fill the clubs and bars, and party until the very late hours.
This is why I strongly advice to plan your schedule accordingly, making sure you save enough energy for long nights out of clubbing and drinking during the weekends!
It is very easy to find clubs in Grand Baie, as almost all of them can be found on Royal Road in the center of Grand Baie. So, all you have to do is to start walking along Royal Road until you see a club, and then continue to the next, and the next....
Another big advantage of the nightlife in Mauritius is that many of the clubs offers free entrance, while others charge low entrance fee of 100 Rs (about 2.5 Euro), which make it ideal for bar/clubhopping, where you can find yourself skipping from one place to another until ending the night at early morning the next day.
The Grand Baie clubbing scene only starts rather late, at around 23:30 pm, so plan accordingly. If you are like me and you are not in your 20's anymore, have a rest before going out so you are sure to keep partying all night.
There’s a lot of activity during weekends, so my suggestion is that you will begin your evening at the first club on Royal Road when coming from the direction of Pointe Aux Cannonier, heading the direction of Pereybere.
The first place you will find is the Les Enfants Terribles. This club is divided into a few sections, in which they offer different types of music. Also, there are 3 bars there- 2 inside and one outside, so you can really enjoy drinking, and dancing while changing places inside the club. For more details on the Les Enfants Terribles Click here.
You can also try the Patch and Parrot in Point aux Cannonieres for a bit of sports action. This place offers a great combination for people who want to watch a game and have a drink, and also for enjoying some dancing. For more details on the Patch and Parrot Click here.
From there, if you continue straight the direction of Grand Baie you will find the Bedroom Bar, Restaurant & Lounge. This place is exactly as it sounds- comprising of beds which are divided by white curtains. The Bedroom bar is more about chilling out while enjoying some good music.

The next place I recommend to visit (even though it is not a club, but rather a restaurant / bar) is the Beach House Bar, which has great food and very niceambiance in the evening. It is situated right on the beach, so you can really enjoy a cocktail or beer on the beachfront. For more details on the Beach House Bar Click here.
Further down Royal Road, is the Banana Beach Club. This is one of the best places in Mauritius for drinking out, seeing both locals and tourists and listening to live music. Every weekend there is a band playing live music from jazz and blues, to rock music. If you wish to just chill out and enjoy the cool beach atmosphere or see live music performance, you’re in the right place – just make sure to come early (at around 21:30 – 22:00) so you will have a place to sit.

If you wish to party and party hard, you should definitely go to the Godfather Club. The godfather is the only club found right on the beach. The club is located a little off Royal Road, next to the entrance to the Royal Palm resort (look for the signs). It has few rooms, in each of them you will find different kind of music. This is defiantly the biggest discotheque currently operating in Grand Baie. You will find the Godfather packed with locals during weekends. For more details on the Godfather Club Click here.
The next club to be found on Royal Road is the N Gyone Dance Bar & Lounge. The Ngyone is found on Royal Road next to the Total Gas Filling station. It is rather a new club, as clearly visible from its design, sound system and light elements. Out of all the clubs in Grand Baie, this is definitely one of the most beautiful ones, very similar to the clubs found in Europe. The club consists of one big lounge area, where you can sit outside and chill out, and a big dancing area. There are two bars one inside and the second outside as part of the lounge area. The Ngyone offers a very good combination of a club and a lounge. For more details on the Ngyone Click here.
Next to the Ngyone you will find the Buddha Bar (also located on Royal Road), which is one of the busiest club / Bars in Grand Baie. From the outside you will see a few tables, and when you walk inside you will find a sitting area and a big round bar which everyone is sitting and dancing around it. The Buddha Bar is almost always packed from around midnight, so if you plan to sit at the sitting area, be sure to come before 23:30.
Other clubs in Mauritius which are not in Grand Baie are:
One of Mauritius' biggest advantages is that except than in few places, there is no entrance fee to most of the clubs, so the only price you have to pay is for the drinks.
Drinks prices vary from club to club, but in general beer costs 90-120 Rs and a cocktail about 200-350 Rs.
When partying and clubbing, you encounter people from all classes, who usually had a bit more alcohol then when meeting them in other circumstances. That said, you are likely to encounter people who lack everything from hygiene to common sense.
