Love kicking it up in the square on Friday and Saturday nights. Three generations of locals and tourists having a ball.

We have spent many hours over all of our trips to Freeport in the square. My grandaughter loves to dance and listen to music and there is quite often live music and singing and dancing, it is a nice outside spot to take your lunch and or drink and sit and relax. We have been there at New Years Eve... More

We were looking forward to this stop on our cruise, but only stayed 2 hours as we were bombarded by locals at every shop trying to get us to buy from them, telling us all their deals of the day. Makes for a tense visit, hard to browse and pressured to buy. Next time we will stay on boat or... More

Count Basie square is a wonderful place in the evening, when live entertainment begins, and anyone and everyone can participate or simply watch the heart of Lucaya come alive....dancing, singing or grabbing a pizza and taking it all in. Entertainment was excellent - from the very young to the very mature - everyone was having a great time every time... More

Place was empty...lots of effort but nothing going on. Just tried to submit this with just the first sentence and travel advisor kicked it back saying the review must be at least 50 characters...nothing more to say other than there wasn't anything to see?

it is in the center of the shopping area, near the marina. There is a stage but not much goes on , we only saw entertainment twice while we were there. I am sure there has to be some awesome talent in Freeport and this area could be used by them to entertain vacationers

This is in the heart of the Port Lucaya Marketplace and surrounded by a number of shops. At night it is the happening spot for nightlife, with a lot of music and local performance, and native dishes available for purchase. You won't be disappointed in a visit to this place.

Lots of fun to walk and people-watch. We enjoyed the music and the sights. Also fun to watch the yachts come and go.
