If you’re in Fiji and looking for a night of retro meets hip-hop, laid back meets crazy, then O’Reillys in Suva is the place for you. An Irish-owned pub with a totally local atmosphere that is extreme and fun filled for all races and ages (well 21-years and over that is). This is a club where (if you're local),the occasional bumping into relatives from all over the place is a common occurrence. The music and crowd are major contributors to the atmosphere of this club (which is certainly nowhere near Irish at midnight!). Pole dancing is allowed and happens to be one of the club's main attractions. Dress is semi-formal.
Traps is one of the longest running nightclubs in Fiji that still boasts a strong reputation of 'hip' to this day. It is divided into 5 different bars with a non-smoking top lounge for those who just want a more laidback style. On weekdays you can unwind to the smooth sounds of local DJs or mingle with artists and poets during a poetry reading. The other 4 bars are the full nightclub experience with hip hop influence strongly evident in the music. The interesting thing about Traps is that all 5 bars have their own unique atmospheres. The front bar usually hosts businessmen or socialites who rock up after work for a drink or two. The middle and back bars cater mostly for students and the younger of the workforce. The dress code is semi-formal - definitely no flip-slops or shorts.
This is one of the few clubs that runs quite late. You could call it the salad bowl of clubs due to the fact that all sorts of people congregate here after visiting other clubs. The music is good, the crowd can get a bit rough sometimes but generally leave others alone. The club is underground and when crowded can get quite stuffy (and you're never really certain whose body's leaning against you). Take care to stick with your group and ensure that your wallets and purses are safely kept.
The Golden Dragon
A spot that has challenged the tide of modernisation and retained most of its original structure. Today, you can walk into Dragon, sit at any of the tables, order a drink off friendly waiters and feel nostalgic. The music is old school with a choice of classics and island grooves spun by the DJ. Tertiary students and islanders make up majority of patrons on the usual week ends, but older patrons every other day. The club is quite big with facilities like a newly furbished rest room for both ladies and gents, pool tables, bar and dance floor. Security here is very reliable.
(Formerly The Barn) just re-opened its doors late last year. Targeted mainly by those in the older demographic. It's the place to go if you’re into live music (house band), country music or classics from the 70’s & 80’s.
(Formerly Shooters) is a club that caters to the younger end of the clubbing scene. A DJ spins the very latest music along the lines of hip-hop, rap and R&B. Bouncers always make certain that O2's is never overcrowded. It's like hosting a private party. O2’s is synonymous with theme parties, like one in which you'd wear your beach attire. The mood here is easy, with hardly any scuffles. That's probably because of the huge bouncers wandering about.
