The Ultimate Guide To Boracay’s Nightlife

Boracay is well known for its vibrant, seven days a week nightlife. There are many different nightlife venues to choose from – from wild parties, to bars, to lounges with live music…

Knowing that, how do you find the places that best fit your likes? Read on to find out…

In this guide I list and describe 98% of Boracay’s nightlife venues that matter, so that you can easily find the clubs, bars, lounges and parties that fit your style.

Boracay’s Clubs

Boracay’s nightclubs become busy around 12:00 midnight as most people move from the bars to the clubs. I’ve embedded videos of most of them so that you can get a good impression of what they are like.

The music they play varies, none of them always play the same style of music. If you prefer a certain kind of music it’s best to check out the Facebook pages of the clubs. There you can often see what they will be playing.

Epic

Epic sits right in the center of Boracay, next to D’mall and in front of the Beach in Station 2.

During the day it’s a resto-bar, and as the night progresses they move most tables out of the way and turn the place into a club with a dance floor. They often extend the dance floor onto the beach.

It’s one of the more classy clubs in terms of looks.
