The island of Utila in Honduras is not only well know because of the underwater activities but also for the nightlife, with plenty of divers looking to let off some steam after a day spent exploring the magical reefs and seascapes on offer. If you are looking to party until the sun comes up and go crazy Monday through Friday, then Utila is not the place for you. The nightlife here is more relaxed, but there is lot’s of variety and a little bit something for everyone!.
Owned by Neil, an eccentric American artist, this psychedelic mango-treetop bar is somewhere you just have to see while visiting Utila. It always draws a cast of local characters and is definitely one of the more fun places on the island. The ‘Dark Moon’ night during the new moon is one of the best parties on the island.
Skid row Bar
This is everything a hard-drinking bar should be, with a leaky tin roof, concrete floor, pool table, dart board, an excess of wizened characters and a long-suffering bartender. All visitors are cordially invited to take up the ‘Giufity Challenge’ – downing shots of a Garifuna herb-enhanced moonshine. Decent pub grub, including Tex-Mex dishes and burgers, is also available, as is delivery.
A dive bar that packs in a curious mix of local characters, hard drinkers and members of the international wandering class. The only place in the island were you can buy 1 liter beers!
This is a laid back place to enjoy a cold drink while watching the sun set while enjoying the open views of the bay from the second story open air dock. Open at 5pm the early sun-downer crowd is muy ‘tranquila’! However, it turns onto a party scene with dancing and all kinds of shenanigans later in the evening and hosts nightly events such as Tequila Tuesdays, this means free tequila from 9-10 (be careful on this day).
