Tips and info for going out in Paceville

Taxis are also abundant within the area. If you are driving, there are a couple of public parking areas you could use against a fee (Ex. Portomaso Car Park: Weekend Rates: €2.00 Per Hour – Max €6.50).
Pay close attention to the rates on display, as some car parks will charge up to max €12.00 (usually reached within 3-4 hours).
Entrance fees: Unless a party or special event’s been organised, there’s usually no entrance fee to get into nightclubs in Paceville.
Opening hours: Most clubs open their doors at around 9:30 PM, and stay open till around 4:00 AM. Arriving early is definitely not recommended as the party usually starts at around 11:00 PM.
Best thing to do is grab something to eat or drink from one of the bars below, before going to the clubs!
Legal drinking age: You need to be 18 years or older to be able to purchase and drink alcohol or spirits legally on the island. Therefore, if you are attending any nightclubs, you might be asked for some form of identification.
Safety and Security
- As with any unfamiliar place you’re visiting, be aware of your surroundings at all times, keep your belongings safe and keep your wits about you.
- Overcrowding is an often-seen issue at nightclubs and bars. The more popular venues, such as Havana, are usually very heavily crowded and have long queues at the entrance.
- So be ready to wait if you want to get into the club, and be prepared to wait again to buy a drink at the bar! Preferential treatment is often given to women for entrance to clubs, as well as serving of drinks.
Don’t forget to meet up with the ClickSure team while you’re at the conference! Matt and Will are looking forward to meeting you.
