Catalina from A to Z: Nighttime activities on the island

Hello, and welcome to the Blogging A to Z Challenge! This year my theme is Catalina from A to Z, featuring posts about the Southern California island of Catalina. With a focus on the island’s romantic side, I’ll be sharing info about where to go, what to see and do, plus a few sneak peeks from my novel in progress, Wife For A Weekend, which is set on the island!

Catalina Island may be small, but it’s still got all of the basic amenities you’ll need – including a healthy nightlife! Whether you’re looking for live music, dive bars, or unique cocktails, you can find it all in Avalon’s three main hot spots.

  1. Chi Chi Club: Dancing, billiards, live bands and a VIP lounge for private parties make this 21+ nightclub your best bet for a wild evening out.
  2. Luau Larry’s: With a great view of the bay plus food, Tiki drinks and dancing, Larry’s is another nighttime favorite on the island. Try the Wiki Wacker, one of their signature cocktails.
  3. Marlin Club: The oldest bar in town, and therefore a must-visit destination. Inside you’ll find gorgeous underseas murals plus a pool table, foosball, pinball, darts and video games to help pass the time.
