“This place rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Love this place! Spent many evenings listening to the great live band playing top 40 songs and some classic Bob Marley or UB40's Red Red Wine. DJ plays between sets and when the band is done for the night. Love the open air design of the place although it was getting a little wet on the dance floor when it rained one night. The drinks are reasonable-not too overpriced. Plenty of drunken tourists having a good time with the local gals mixed in. There are beer bars on either side of the street leading to the pub/club if you want to warm up a bit before you get there. Free parking for your rented motorbike...no cover...no pressure to buy drinks from pushy staff...loved this place and cannot wait to go back and party all night!

“Best New Year EVER!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

We visited Reggae Pub on new years eve 2011 after 10 years since my boyfriends last visit we were not disappointed.

The word pub implies a small establishment but this place is huge with a large bar, stage and dance floor but with loads of tables too if you would rather sit and watch than be in the middle of things. There was a live reggae band who were great playing all the reggae classics we love and the service was friendly and quick.

As with many of the bars the cocktails tasted pretty weak so we stuck to beer which was perfectly cold on a 30' evening and my boyfriend and I (having had many a sober night watching tourists get ripped off across the island) always pay after each drink rather than running a tab which was perfectly acceptable from the waitresses.

The new years celebration and fireworks that Reggae Pub put on we're out of this world with thousands of sky lanterns and other fireworks displays to be seen across the sky it was the perfect view point. This place has a great fun atmosphere and doesn't have the same 'party hard teenager' vibe that some of the other places have on the island so it caterers for young and old alike without being cheesy.

The only downside for me was that the owner launched into some weird butlins style games on the dance floor at 2am so we left but I don't think this was the usual. Oh and the hangover the next day!!!!
