If you like music you’ll love the nightlife in Kingston, Jamaica. There’s music around every corner. You could even say that music the soul of Jamaica. Kingston’s nightlife is mainly focused around one street and that’s Knutsford Boulevard. It isn’t hard to find it, especially at night, just look for all where the lights and music playing. As far as the type of music goes, Jamaica has all types from Latin and Jazz to Reggae and 70s. If you don’t like the music in one venue, walk across the street until you find one more to your taste.
A great way to begin your nightlife in Kingston is to buy the local paper, “The Gleaner” and find out what’s going on that night. Every night there’s something new happening, whether it is entertainment at a club, theater or a festival. Jamaica is all about partying and Kingston knows just how to do it right. Once you’ve settled on what to do you may want to treat yourself to a meal at one of the local restaurants. After dinner, it’s time to start clubbing, don’t worry there is more than a couple to choose from!
The happening place seems to be the “Asylum” where you’ll find all types of music – reggae, dancehall music (which is kind of like reggae and rap), 70’s, 80’s and even disco. Make sure to arrive early because if you arrive late in high season you may not be able to get in – it fills up fast!
