Drinking and nightlife in Seychelles

  • Nightlife in Praslin

    Chill Out Tapas Lounge Bar

    Upstairs from Cafe des Arts, this supercool beach-side spot is Praslin's (and perhaps even the Seychelles') trendiest bar. The resident DJ runs things on Wednesdays, Saturdays and chilled-out Sundays and the dress code is long pants for men (except on Sundays) and no flip-flops.

  • Top ChoiceNightlife in Eden Island

    The Boardwalk

    As good for a morning coffee as a late-night cocktail, this slice of sophistication could be the coolest place on the island. With wicker sofas on a pontoon out on the water and downbeat tunes keeping things mellow, it's our pick for the best bar in the country.

    Chatterbox Cafe

    The pick of Eden Island's cafes, Chatterbox does excellent coffee and always has a buzz about it – locals come out to the island just for a coffee here. It also offers breakfasts, burgers, salads, pastries and pizza, but we love it for the range and quality of the coffees; iced coffees are served, too.

  • Nightlife in Victoria

    Level Three Bar

    Despite the odd location in a nondescript building near the harbour, Level Three Bar is worth considering for its affordable cocktails (Rs 150) and its cool atmosphere. There's karaoke on Friday evening.

  • Nightlife in Beau Vallon & the North Coast

    Tequila Boom

    The pick of the predominantly local nightclubs, this place along the main road in Bel Ombre, close to Beau Vallon, plays local music that'll have you up and dancing in no time.

  • Nightlife in La Digue

    Kazye Cafe

    This coffee bar serves some of the island's best espresso. Find it at the jetty, next to the ticket booth for the ferry.

  • Nightlife in East Coast


    The east coast is home to one of Mahé's most popular nightclubs. Despite outward appearances, it's a fairly hip venue, so dress up rather than down.

    1770 Brewery Beer Bar

    We're not sure why, but beer just tastes better if you drink it at the source. We liked the lager, while the dark beer is an acquired taste – although that's true of most beers of its kind.
