Count Basie Square- live entertainment

Count Basie Square brought some fun and livelihood to a rainy windy day. The musicians playing were full of energy and it brought some sunshine to a cloudy day.

There are many bars in the Freeport Marketplace and all have their own music pretty much at max volume. Count Basie Square is in the center of this general area. There the music is generally played at the max the speakers can handle. So you have loud and sometimes obnoxious 'music' blasting through the marketplace and across the marina into... More

Count Basie Square is the heart of Port Lucaya Marketplace. There is usually music playing or a live band at night. It's a fun place to be. We enjoyed the live performances and fireworks on NYE. Check it out.

I went there after T shirts, and came out with three nice ones, and few pieces of jewelry, it was a fun shopping experience, and a lot of choices.

Just returned from the Carnival Sensation cruise. The market is the first thing you see when you come off the ship. It was the place where we met our tour guide for our snorkeling (Dead man's reef). After we came back from there we strolled around the market for a little while. I was not quite impressed, typical market targeted... More

On New Years Eve they throw a big bash here with live music and dancing and fireworks at midnight. There are some beautiful Christmas decorations and trees for nice photo opportunities.

Great place to sit, relax and soak up some Bahamian culture before boarding your cruise ship. If you don't have any excursions planned or just return with some free time before you're due back on your ship this is a great location to buy some souvenirs or get a drink you can actually afford. The prices are very reasonable for... More

Loved it! It is very colourful and neat, not at all cheap-looking. You will find everything from the nice souvenirs, local food, fancy stores, music, just name it ... This is definitely one of the must see places!

This is a good spot to start and finish your shopping or dining at Port Lucaya Market Place. Free music most evenings and near the Marina, so the view is pretty.
