Nightlife in the Seychelles

Entrance in bars and nightclubs is strictly restricted to 18 years, no ID = no entrance.
Most nightclubs open their doors at 22:30 and run up to 03:00 to 04:30 in the morning, depending on the ambiance and day. Most of the locals are coming to the club later on from 01:00 am. Some nightclubs have some special offers on tickets, e.g. free entrance for ladies on Wednesdays in Katiolo or cheaper entry for gents, who come before midnight. Every weekend  there are different themes and offers at the clubs, eg. each group of minimum 5 girls can get a free bottle of champagne, or enter for free before midnight or can even get free vodka shots. Often you will hear local artists featuring the DJ. Clubs like Katiolo or Tequila Boom have sometimes dancing competitions but the highlight are definitely the performances of professional dancers, which also do some sexy lap dances from time to time.
During the weekdays it is mostly quiet as most of the people are working from 8 am to 4 pm. So definitely Fridays and Saturdays are the best days to go out in Seychelles. But bars and restaurants are opened as well on weekdays.

On Fridays there are a few places to be, such as :

Level 3 – Irish Pub

Victoria in the Docklands Complex

Level 3 is a pub with good music and affordable drinks.
