MARTINIQUE / Nightlife

There are about a dozen good little night spots in Fort-de-France that fill the night with pulsating Zouk rhythms or soft jazz. In the larger hotels, there are piano bars and late night discos, especially in the Pointe-du-Bout resort area. Some hotels around the island feature dinner dances and shows, including performances by Les Grands Ballets de la Martinique and Les Balisiers, professional troupes of talented young dancers, singers and musicians. The legal drinking age on the island is 18.

Martinique has two gambling casinos, one in Pointe-du-Bout and the other in Schœlcher, near Fort-de-France (both open nightly from 21:00 to 3:00 the next morning). They offer American or French roulette and blackjack. Proof of identity (e.g., valid passport or driver's license with photo) is required. Both casinos charge an entrance fee. Dress is casual; no tie or jacket is required. There are slot machines in salons, outside the gaming rooms (no entry fee). The legal gambling age is 18.
