DESTINATIONS tunisia hammamet Bars & Nightlife Calypso


The glitzy Calypso is a massive, fashionable nightclub (some say, the best on the entire continent) that packs hundreds at a time - local and international party-goers fill the floor form midnight onward, dancing to tunes spun by guest DJs from all over the world. Drinks are on the pricey side.

Bars & Nightlife

Nightlife entertainment primarily centers around Hammamet Sud, while the Yasmine marina area is more known for its low-key, lounge-type bars. In the drinks department, Tunisia boasts some quality locally-produced wines (stocked in most places that serve alcohol) and a fig-based brandy variety (boukha). Celestia is a popular non-alcoholic beer. Do mind that not all local establishments serve alcohol, so it might be a good idea to enquire beforehand. Alcohol sale is restricted on Muslim holidays.
