Snapshot: Nassau, Bahamas

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Nassau.

Bay Street

What’s Nassau like?

baystreet2

A main street in downtown.

Nassau is a small, well-developed, Caribbean town. The people are, by far, the friendliest I’ve encountered in the Caribbean (all countries west of Puerto Rico). During the day, it’s flooded with cruise ship tourists, but during the night, the scene is surprisingly local and rough around the edges. It’s a lovely place to spend a few days, but it’s expensive and don’t expect to find a party outside of the weekend.

What are the women like?

Anastagia Pierre

Anastagia Pierre

Bahamian girls are upgraded Jamaicans. They have cuter accents and are very approachable. While a lot of them are still overweight, you find a lot more cuties and mixed raced stunners. You can even find 8’s if you look hard enough. They also have a decent income, so there’s no hustle. I didn’t encounter any prostitution. Bahamian girls also like foreigners… a lot! Local guys are players who lust after tourists, and Over time, the girls have become the exact same. It’s pretty easy to pick them up.

All that said, Bahamian girls are flaky as f**k. I’ve never had as many girls give me their number or bail on dates in my life. I literally had to street spam women to get my flag. At one stage, I invited 5 girls out on the same date, and only one came through. (She was a cute 19-year with a slamming body, but that’s beside the point.) The lesson here is always try and go for the bang the first night.

Another piece of advice: local girls are very reluctant to make out with you early in the approach. Nassau is a small town and suffers from ‘big village syndrome’. Everybody knows everybody, so discretion is important. Bouncing to another spot is a good option.

Where should I go at night-time?

Fish Fry

Fish Fry

It depends on the night. On quiet evenings, there’s usually a bit of activity up at the Fish Fry. It’s a strip of local eaties and bars. Don’t expect anything more than a good meal, but sometimes a venue hosts live music and there are few cute girls around. (This is actually where I picked up my flag).

On Thursdays, ladies night at Club Waterloo attracts a small, but attractive crowd. The place is a  huge poolside club and is seriously cool. Fridays are shit, but Saturdays attract the biggest crowd in all of Nassau. If you want top quality girls, here’s the place to be. Just pre-drink beforehand. Drinks are expensive, there is admission, and if you’re staying in the center, you’ll need a taxi to get there.

Waterloo

Waterloo

In the center, the best to party on weekends was Club Bambu. It’s a mid-size  disco bar that attracts a laid back, mixed crowd. It’s also right in the center of town. If you’re not digging that place, or if you prefer Latin women and salsa vibes, head to Tropicana nearby. Finally, if you’re looking for easy tourists and well-to-do locals, go to Senor Frogs.

Any other recommendations/advice?

Hit up the Fish Fry for some good grub. It’s worth it. You might also want to take a water taxi and explore Paradise Island.

If you’re on a budget, the cheapest place to stay is the Park Manor Guesthouse. It’s a bit of a shithole, but it has a small pool and Wifi. It costs $50 a night, but you can negotiate that down if you’re staying longer than three nights. I got five nights for $210. There’s a gym here that do day passes for $10.

There is also plenty of weed around. Just walk down Bay Street and you’ll be offered it by the local Rastas. They will rip you off, however. Don’t pay more than $20 for a decent bag. Locals are buy $5 bags, which are prefect if you only have a few days.

Bottom Line

Overpriced, but a nice place to spend a long weekend.

    Ha, I remember Waterloo club. Picked up a seriously cute american girl there when I was 21.

    One night-life / bar option that you missed out is cable beach.

    Crazy Johnny’s is not bad and there are a few bars in that general area.

    Otherwise though, the report reminds me of why I did not want to go back there.

    Grand Bahama island is worth checking out if you have time.

    bahamian girls are not upgraded versions of jamaican girls, jamaican girls are actually hotter than bahamian girls you just dnt see them. the “uptown girls” in jamaica are waaay hotter than bahamians, these girls are the ones who live in the kingston suburbs and are from wealthy families but they wont get involved with tourists for a one night fling, they have class and are not frightened by money or foreigners since most of them are well off. but yeah jamaica has won three MISS WORLD TITLES and have had several Finalists in the Miss Universe competition including a First Runner up, something the Bahamas has never ever accomplished. plus jamaica has a very large mixed population over 500,000 which is way more than the total pop’n of the bahamas

      Are you Jamaican?

      • anonymous December 30, 2013 at 1:58 am #

        no I’m Caymanian who is living in Jamaica, i use to live in Bahamas too, so i know what both countries are like, Bahamas does have hot girls but i wouldn’t say the girls there are hotter than Jamaicans in general they are equal in my opinion. why? well because Jamaica and the Bahamas has a similar ethnic makeup, Bahamas- black 85%, white 15% and Jamaica-: 76.3% African descent, 15.1% Afro-European, 3.4% East Indian and Afro-East Indian, 3.2% Caucasian, 1.2% Chinese and 0.8% Other.- statistics provided by the University of the West Indies- the university serving the English Speaking Caribbean other stats will say 90% black but thats not true because a lot of mixed/non-black Jamaicans go to college abroad especially in Florida and also live between Florida and Jamaica and the stats don’t take that into account, we also have some poor white farmer communities in the rural towns such as St. Elizabeth and Westmoreland ask about the German town whenever you’re in Negril. Jamaica is even a bit more diverse and as a result has some exotic mix of girls with interesting features. 2 in the English Speaking Caribbean, the two most successful countries in the modeling and beauty “industry” are Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, they both have more internationally successful models and have both won Miss Universe and Miss World titles, yes titles not title. the Bahamas has never done that and if they had more beautiful women they would have, Cuba on the other hand don’t enter those competitions and if they did I’m pretty sure they would have won a lot !! because Cubans are hot and I’d definitely agree that they are the hottest in the Caribbean a long with Puerto Rico but not the Bahamas. 3. i noticed that you mentioned UTECH as a nice hookup spot for college girls but did not mention UWI, which has waay hotter girls than Utech, UWI is more upper-class and more prestigious btw. 4 a lot of the hot jamaican girls go to college abroad, so you wont see a lot unless you visit during the holidays and go to the uptown ” rich people parties” thats where the hot girls in jamaica party, go to clubs like fiction and privi to some extent, not quad, quad and asylum are kinda ghetto, initially they were not ghetto but a lot of ghetto ppl started going there so the “uptown” jamaicans diverted to more affluent clubs. check out this FB page call SKKAN Media, a photography group who uploads pictures of some these exclusive parties. when it comes to hot girls in the English Speaking Caribbean, Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana are the places to be, Cayman too but Cayman is really a place filled with Expats from all over the world so you might have a hard time finding Caymanians in Cayman lol, cayman girls have a Hispanic look but they speak English. what i am saying tho is that the Bahamas does not have hotter girls than Jamaica, i will admit there are some very very ugly fat girls in Jamaica and you are more likely to see them since the hot ones are usually rich and don’t take public transportation but to use those ugly girls and generalize Jamaica would be an inaccurate description.

          I agree that the top tier Jamaican girls are world class.

          However, while the two countries may par on looks, I say Bahamian girls are upgraded because they are far friendlier and sweet.

          • anonymous December 31, 2013 at 2:03 am #

            oh i get you, Jamaican girls can be stuck-up Bitches at times, especially the hot ones, they would probably treat you with respect since you’re a foreigner but will refuse to have sex and a lot of them tend to be taken lol , Bahamian chicks are friendlier because the entire country is dependent on tourism and as such they try to make all their visitors feel welcome unlike Jamaica where we have other industries and tourism is only confined to the North and West Coast. but for the most part your blog gives the most accurate description of the Jamaican experience !!!, I’m now an avid reader (Y)

      Anonymous Caymanian, he was giving an opinion! Don’t get so bent out of shape. I would never go back to Jamaica either; total waste of time. I would rather go visit family in Colombia or panama instead. The Bahamas is, in my experience, like the Nomad said; hotter women but still flaky. I would rather do the DR for the Caribbean because there is more variety and less tourists. Overall, the Caribbean is not my bag, but it can be fun with the right people.

    naughty nomad-
    I’m a big Roosh V fan and found this site that way.

    I’m from the American South which has a ton of Irish and Scottish ancestry and see you’re from Ireland.

    My point-
    While you’re in New York it would be cool to see you game a Southern City and to see how a World traveling UK does against a region of boring simpletons. I think you will clean house and I reccomended Nashville, TN (for
    Blonde all Murican Southern girls or as my
    Cuban friend from NY call them- “farmers daughters” lol- there simple minds will be blown away by a global hustler like you). Atlanta, GA (this is the up and coming black man in Americas city- Buckhead Midtown are the white night life areas but dude I went to school in ATL and there are some cock hardening mega tit black chicks there). Charleston, SC (get on the Roosh V forum- you’ll see there’s loads of talent here- Market Street is the spot). Charlotte NC (like Nashville downtown is where the action is- there were some huge tit model looking Penthouse Pet 10s during my trip there- some of the finest women I’ve ever seen- its a banking city- go figure- hos love $$$).

    I gotta mention Los Angeles (southern California is my favorite place in America- East Side and inland Empire are hot Mexican central, Pasadena Burbank and Glendale has variety, Malibu is rich bitch central for your sugar momma game, and Orange County is blonde suburbia- lot of talent there too- the beaches in OC are awesome-lots of hipster girls and ethnicities in Huntington Beach).

    Ps- how old are you?

    • Naughty Nomad December 30, 2013 at 4:59 pm #

      I’m 27. Not sure I’ll have time to hit the southern cities.

  4. Joe December 29, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

    Oh- how could I forget Miami (fine Latina central and the Hard Rock Casino is fun and a local favorite).
    I’ve heard New Orleans is good too but I’ve never been. They say Austin, TX but most texans I’ve met are some corny ass rednecks- I’d say pass on Texas unless other guys give you good info. Some of the worst hitch shields I’ve met where from Sallas- I call them redneck girls playing Saks 5th Avenue.

    What is the easiest country in the english caribbean to pick up? I was just in barbados and I had a similar experience NN had. I got lots of numbers, never got so many numbers in my life and never met women so approachable but I was only able to close one girl and she lived most of her life in the US, she is a special case. The local guys were telling me that bajan girls are the toughest in the caribbean to crack.

    I am looking to hit up Jamaica next, sure the girls there must be easier than barbados, no?

    Any info on this will be appreciated.
