Margaritaville, Ocho Rios  

Margaritaville - Island Village
Tel:- (1 876) 675-8800

The Margaritaville bar and restaurant is the busiest spot in Ocho Rios. The bar is mostly aimed at tourists but also attracts a Jamaican crowd.

Margaritaville is a Caribbean themed bar although this has been somewhat re-imagined through American eyes (for example, there is a gift shop inside the bar and you can ask for your drinks to be served in souvenir glasses). The order of the day at Margaritaville is "fun in the sun" with a whirlpool hot tub on the roof, a 100 meter water slide, a swim-up bar and access to Island Village Beach.

Margaritaville Ocho Rios is owned by American country music singer Jimmy Buffet and is named after his 1977 hit song "Margaritaville". Buffet also owns Margaritaville bars in Negril and Montego Bay. Buffet was present at the opening of the Ocho Rios Margaritaville in 2002 where he played a live set to launch the establishment.

During the day time the atmosphere is laid back, with customers enjoying lunch and a drink in the sun. In the evening time Margaritaville becomes a buzzing nightclub; DJs play dancehall and hip-hop sets and well known Jamaican bands play live concerts here. Different nights of the week usually have a different theme. At the time of writing Wednesday night is pool party night (drinks are all-inclusive and guests are encouraged to wear swimwear and use the pool).
