About
Venom is the the Oldest and the biggest bar on the Island. This is the place where Havelock meets and greets. You can enjoy live singing by various artists depending on the month you visit. Venom gives you the feel of the perfect shack on the Island where you can enjoy your beer and cocktails. Must try is the sea food and appetizers from the clay oven. Venom serves delicacies from all around the world. It is conveniently located at Symphony Palms Beach Resort, right in the center of Havelock Island. Also, if you are lucky try to make it tone of the TRANCE Parties which happen once in a while and the full month of December.

I have had the most bombastic experience at the Venom Bar. With its live music, they provide their visitors with an ambience best suited for a celebration. I was there with my better half and it's our personal viewpoint, that they served the best cocktails and sea food starters in the entire island. All in all, in terms of hospitality, food, drinks, ambience, crowd and music, Venom Bar must be one's first choice.

Venom is the best hangout to party and chill with friends and family in all of Havelock.
The place has a quirky touch with very welcoming bartenders. They have a wide variety of drinks and cocktails. Must try the biryani !!
The live music experience really lifted my spirit up and made the night very memorable. View is beautiful and definitely, going there is money well spent. 10 on 10 would recommend this bar if you happen to visit nearby.

Special mention to the bartender of venom bar Pankaj, who is a part of symphony palms, who is an excellent bartender. His selection of music, selection of vibe is exceptional! You can count on him to make your party full of vibes, and he’ll make sure you have a good time here! He has made me and my friend feel so comfortable here, we had the best time only because of him!! Make sure you ask for him when you visit here. Samrat is another friendly bartender who will make your stay here worthwhile!!!!

After seven in the evening, the thumping music eminating from Venom can be heard from afar, but it wasn't quite what we expected.

Service: ordinary. Peanuts were served with our drink

Drinks: I was excited to see gin on the menu even if it was relatively expensive at R390 for a single, but who drinks gin neat? Sadly the tonic water was not available so I tried mixing with the fresh lime soda. The only problem was that they aren't allowed to mix drinks that aren't on their cocktails list. It was the worst gin and lime drink I have ever had. It was warm and extremely salty. I couldn't bring myself to finish it.

Food: not sampled

Vibe: very loud music but plenty of space if you want to dance the night away barefoot (you have to take your shoes off before stepping inside). Seating area is comfortable with a nice view and plenty of people-watching opportunities

Value: cocktails average R500 each but whatever it was I ordered was worth a fraction of that. But I suppose in part you pay for the atmosphere and cool setting

Go again? Wouldn't bother

This is the best bar I have visited at Havelock Island. If you are a party person or you like to explore night life in some other area, you should definitely visit Venom Bar. It is a shack like bar which serves amazing cocktails and sea food starters. They have the best sea food available at Havelock Island. There you can celebrate with your friends and family, they have quite a good space if you want to arrange parties for your closed ones. Along with that, this is the most happening place in the Island as you can connect with lots of people there. I highly recommend to visit this bar once.

The bar is closed as comes under SC ruling of Liquor not to be served on NH . They have shifted the same to the back of the resort which is a scary setup next to workers rooms. Not Advisable to visit
