Hot spots in T&T

To fully understand a country’s cultural underpinnings, you simply must get out and mingle. Locals and visitors alike can learn a lot about the social cues and general life philosophies as they sip on cold libations. Sometimes, however, we just need a ‘lil lime’ to remind us that life is brimming with excitement and fun.

Interestingly, Trinidad and Tobago’s (T&T) nightlife has taken a turn for the uber modern, with several new spots opening up in the last year. These new additions, as well as the standard favourites, have taken liming in T&T to a whole new level.

Aria Lounge, Ariapita Avenue:

At just under two years old, this modern hot spot has been making waves since its doors opened in 2013. Carded as a more upscale space, Aria hosts young professionals looking to have fun a sleek space. Of course, the fun can’t be forgotten, as each weekend Aria hosts special events to further entice party-goers. Not only is Aria well-appointed, but guests are also expected to get all dolled up as the nightclub operates a strict dress code. This is an ideal spot for locals with discerning taste and travellers looking to experience the other part of T&T’s varied culture.

Luce at Hilton

Overlooking the Queen’s Park Savannah, Luce (loo-chay) has a fantastic uncovered terrace that dangles over the height that the Hilton Hotel is known for. With a creative sushi menu and lovely drink offerings, Luce is a unique spot if you’re looking for psychedelic lights to entertain you. If that doesn’t entice you, the view will! Often booked solid due to the stunning panoramic view of T&T, the terrace at Luce is a simply one of the best bets if you’re looking for a chance to dine under the stars. Just be sure to call ahead as the terrace availability is also subject to rainy weather conditions.

Paprika
Quite possibly, Paprika T&T might be seen has having an identity crisis. With varied décor that imbibes the earthy charm of the Middle East, and chic approach a la Paris, and the seemingly Spanish and Italian-inspired menu, this particular restaurant and bar has been garnering rave reviews. Sporting an impressive wine and champagne list, the bar menu is simple, yet has a unique Mediterranean appeal. This is the spot for anyone looking for a great place to have a bite and mingle with some of T&T’s fun-loving residents.

Tzar Nightlife

The newest club on the block, Tzar Nightlife also offers a lovely rooftop bar open that not only allows limers the chance to cool off from all the dancing, but also a view of the bustling Avenue to boot. Geared towards a mature, professional crowd, this spot has been upping the ante when it comes to event nights. Call it clever marketing or simply an attempt to set them apart; Tzar is replete with chic décor and a great drinks menu. Popular nights are Fridays and Saturdays, where clubbers can expect drink specials and guest Djs.
