Nightlife in Aruba

Aruba's nightlife centres on the beach resorts along the western coast with the largest concentration of party haunts located in Oranjestad, Palm Beach and Eagle Beach. Choose from ramshackle beach bars, beer joints and flashy neon-lit dance clubs. Salsa-lovers will adore Latin beats at Cuba's Cooking while MooMba Beach Bar pumps out Calypso until dawn. High-tempo DJs please the clubbing die-hards at Confessions while Blue Martini Bar attracts a more sedate and genteel crowd.
