Georgetown is surprisingly lively at night, mainly with gold miners, traders and overseas Guyanese throwing US$ around. Take care walking home at night. The Library, Camp St, very popular, open Wednesday (ladies night), Friday and Saturday, barbecue, beer garden, dance floor, bar (entrance US$2.50). Blue Note, Camp St, disco and beer garden, entry US$3.50, lively.
Also on Camp St Rumour Bar. Palm Court, Main St, popular bar/café (French style), very lively Friday evening (entry US$3.50) and holidays, no entrance fee on other days. Sidewalk Café and Jazz Club in Ariantze Hotel, Middle St, US$2 on Thursday, major international artists US$3.50-7. Nightflight in Ambassador Club. Trump Card, Church St, near St George’s, sometimes has a live band. Near the Kitty Market are Jazzy Jacks, Alexander St (open till 0400 at weekends), and Wee Place, Lamaha St, but this area is unsafe unless you go with locals. Sheriff St is some way from the centre but is ‘the street that never sleeps’ full of late night Chinese restaurants and has some good bars including Tennessee Lounge, Burns Beat and Sheriff (live band). Most nightclubs sell imported, as well as local Banks beer; many sell drinks by the bottle rather than shot, this works out cheaper. You can visit the steel pan yards and watch practice sessions. There are 2 theatres in Georgetown.
Astor, Waterloo and Church Sts; Strand, Charlotte St; one on Main St; all worth a visit, US$0.90 for a double bill (protect against mosquitoes).
