Most of our friend in the hotel, as there is little or no entertainment in the Tropikist hotel, were there. Denise (a very helpful lady) the taxi driver took us there, waited for us and took us back to our hotel. The atmosphere was lively and the Steel Band was a real treat, 2 hours 30 minuets good lively Caribbean music the crowd loved it. Even though there was a large crowd of tourists and local’s it was not a struggle to get a drink from the bar and everyone got along great. Once the Steel Band stopped the hard-core Reggae music commenced and everyone seemed to be enjoying dancing to the rhythms. It was very loud and seemed to make my belly vibrate, but we had some good fun and left with Denise before mind night, although it does go on through to the morning.

You will have read mixed reviews of this. Basically its one maybe two steel pan bands playing rather bland but pleasant music followed at about 11pm by an oudoor disco. Nice bar with beer etc and a food stall across the street. Those of you that have been to outdoor music events on other caribbean islands will be seriously underwhelmed!

And we stayed about a block away! Yes, it was late Yes, it was loud (after the pan band). My husband heard it all night, but didn't wear the ear plugs I brought (his own fault). I had no problem sleeping. Still, we are in our late 60's, but I was NOT going to miss this famous activity. We got there early, so had seats on the 2nd row. So much fun to watch everyone, some dancing, some drinking waaaay too much at the bar, but no problems. Street food is available, but the lines were long, FYI. Not to be missed, for sure. There is a bar across the street called Sunday School. This is not where the weekly event is. It is behind the little shopping area across the street.

What a blast, we went to Sunday School not knowing what to expect. We heard that it was a big party although in reality it is just 2 bars palying very loud music with loads of tourists on the streets. This does not take away from the enjoyment as there are enough local tobagians to make it feel authentic. There are a few stalls selling jewellery, crafts and trinkets which can be found alomost anywhere on the island, although Sunday School is a place where you pick up other things, if you are into that sort of thing. There is hot food available in a few locations, though after midnight a burger stand was all that was available. We had hot dogs which were gorgeous and only $8TT each. At the start of the night there was a steel band playing, which then turned into a DJ with differnt MC's and singers. We also tried the Original Sunday School called Hendrix which also had very loud music and nice place to listen to soca and reggae. Overall it has been the latest night out we've had, got home about 4am. We're normally in bed by 11pm! A brillant night had by all and lots of fun. Great place to meet people. Totally safe, just a big party in the street with loads of alcohol and everybody enjoying themselves. We had arranged transfers to and from Sunday School though Woodys Tours at Turtle Beach, who checked in on us every 15-20 mins to check we were ok. We were able to go home when we wanted to without any bother. We met another tour guide called Keith (A-Team Tours - ateamtobago@hotmail.com) who took us to the carnival previously. Keith is a gentleman and if you book Sunday School with him , he will stay with you the whole night to guarantee your safety and you will feel safe with him, he is a body builder, loads of muscles!

Would best describe this as an easy introduction to Tobago night life. Safe, clean, easy FUN! Steel drum band play for an hour or so, then the vibe speeds up with the onset of the DJ playing all kinds of tunes.

Suggest going no earlier than nine or ten. Food & drinks available for purchase. No entry fees or cover charge. Dress should be casual & comfortable.

Suggest using the BEST tour and transportation operator on island---Mr. Terry 1868-302-6964. Tell him Kola sent you his way.

The variety of reviews on Sunday School tells you what you need to know - your experience will really vary week to week, depending on the vibe, band etc. Having been to this Tobago institution in early Jan - here's my advice:

1) Don't get there early. We arrived at 8.30pm in cab from Crown Point (TT$80). And it was strangley quiet. A few lost looking toursit like us wandering around the streets of Bucco. Aim for more like 10 or 11pm and the party will be in more of a swing

2) Check if the steel band are playing. We didn't see them as apparently they were practicing for Carnival. A real shame as live music would have lifted the rather limp atmosphere

3) Have dinner before you come. You can eat at Sunday School but options were limited. There was a decent street food stall at the sea front run by lovely people - really tasty chicken, rice, mac pie etc. It was TT$120 for chicken, the lobster was TT$250. Some other stalls were also setting up around 9/10pm. There is a posh resturant there but not the vibe we were looking for.

4) Bring your own rum! Lots of people clearly did this and bought mixers/ice from the 2 bars. Beers were TT$12 or a powerful gin and tonic more like TT$30.

5) Either book a cab to take you back to your villa/hotel - or ask around as there are taxis available - we paid TT$70 to get back to Crown Point - this seemed very reasonable.

6) If in doubt, just go and experience it. When things eventually get going its lots of fun - with locals and tourist get their groove on to the massive sound system in place.

If you want to experience a little culture and a nice mix of tourist and locals. Just get there. The setting was amazing, the music was to dance for, and everyone was super friendly and welcoming. So many new friends. Good times. All ages, young and old.
Something for everyone I think. I love love loved the music. :) Start out with a pan performance and then onto the djs. Real style,

Sunday School is a great night out, shared between a DJ with mega speakers and steel pan drum music, all ages and a mixture of tourists & locals, its a great way to spend your Sunday evening. For an island where go slow is a way of life, the pace revved up with hips swaying, loud music and makeshift roulette and card table. If you are looking for a little excitement and entertainment then Sunday School is just what you need on your visit to Tobago. Drinks are reasonable, local stalls dish up local food and there is even a little shop or two open. Seating is provided concert style, a little basic but functional and there are public toilets for everyone to use - no charge.
