The Montego Bay outpost of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville empire (which was actually an unlicensed knockoff until 2001) is the central party hub of the Hip Strip. It offers the usual cheeseburger-in-paradise menu, a two-story waterslide right into the Caribbean, and lots of floating trampolines and other inflatables for relaxing out on the water. 
 
After 10pm it becomes “Club Ville,” one of the most popular nightspots in town, a crowded bar and folks dancing to mostly reggae, mento, dancehall, and chill island sounds (this is Jimmy Buffett’s joint, after all). The drinks (and the food) are decidedly on the expensive side.

Tuesday night from 11pm to 2am is the all-you-can-drink night: $24.95 gets you a cup which you can refill endlessly with Red Stripe, Smirnoff, or Trelawny Gold Label Rum. All other nights, there is a cover charge of $10 after 10pm.
