Entertainment & Nightlife in Reunion

Réunion also has a varied nightlife that offers something for every style and budget. There are lots of bars and nightclubs for party-goers and three casinos where you can try your luck at.

Venues across Saint-Paul host the annual Réunion Island Film Festival, dedicated to the year's best French films and to honouring emerging talent. Don't miss Ciné Plage – a temporary big-screen erected on the sands of the Plage des Brisants.

In Saint-Denis, students flocked to Cyclone Café, a pub-like, beer-friendly watering hole when live bands perform certain evenings. Good blend of electro, maloya (traditional dance music of Réunion), hardtek and drum 'n' bass. Le Rallye is a trendily downbeat bar (with local DJs) and a café that's a popular hangout. If you feel like belting a number in a karaoke, head to Moda Bar. It also features live bands.

In Saint-Pierre, one of the most atmospheric spots for a drink is the terrace of Café de la Gare, in the old train station. In the evening it transforms into a convivial bar. It's full of attitude and atmosphere; booze it up with new friends or spend a quiet hour to yourself, people-watching. If there's a constant in L'Africa Queen, it's the promise that the music, whatever the style, will get you grooving. DJs roll through salsa, hip-hop, house, electro and soul but always find a way to keep the dance floor filled. Start the night with a few shots at Café de la Gare, which is in the same building. Also in the same location as Café de la Gare, Khalif is one of the hottest spots in St-Pierre. If you're after maloya, séga or some sexy tropical sounds, look no further than Khalif.

Techno reigns supreme in Le Bug, with a fiery nod to rock 'n' roll once a week. Come evening, the beat of the music can rattle the brain into oblivion. Another happening nightspot in Saint-Pierre is the Piano Bar, which caters for an older crowd with down-tempo jazz and soul beats. Jet Set Bar is the ultimate chill-out bar by day, this place is equally enjoyable by night on weekends when groovy DJs take over with deep and chill house, electronica and other beats, depending on their whim. It's cool, funky and low-key at the same time.

To the west of Saint-Pierre, Bato Fou is one of Réunion's prime concert venues and a launch pad for local bands on the boil.
