Well at the moment the only thing I can say is that Hammamet has some fantastic bars and nightclubs, which I hope will be open in the summer.
While I was there in the summer my friends and I virtually lived in Las Palmas or Cheers Bar, both of which are attached to the Hotel Bel Air. At the moment both have closed. Las Palmas closed in August and then Cheers Bar shut in October.
The owners of Las Palmas have opened a new bar just along the same road called Shakespeares. It is the same as Las Palmas. It is a bar restaurant. The owners are an English woman and a Tunisian man, Dawn and Ramzi, I know them both very well. They do English food day and night. There is also a drag show evening on a Friday and Tuesday.
On Tuesday night you pay 50 dinars and you get food and drinks all night. We went on the Sunday and they started this new promotion on the Tuesday following - which left us a bit gutted! The drag show team they have, travel all around Tunisia and are fantastic!
The owners of Cheers Bar are currently looking for a new bar, but as soon as I know anything I will let you know!
In the summer there was a night club called Latino which was very popular with the English tourists, but unfortunately that also got shut down this summer, but rumour had it that someone to do with the president was getting it, but we are still waiting to hear.
Along the same road from there is Havana. They have a web site as well. http://www.havanaclubtunisie.com There are lots of photos on this website, mainly of Tunisians in there, but it is a really good night out if you are with your friends. Most people go with Tunisian friends.
The place to be at the moment is the British Bar! It is where everyone goes, maybe because everywhere else is closed, and my boyfriend is always there. I lived in there this summer after I finished working at Cheers Bar. It plays all English music and a bit Tunisian, everything you can dance to. They play old and new songs so something for everyone! I went to my friend's wedding celebration thing there, Sue and Fetti from the Bel Air. They had such a good night. It was great!
My name is Becki, by the way, and I hope to be living in Barraket Essahel, in Hammamet next year. Last summer I found work in a place called Cheers Bar, after a week's trial. So getting a job is a case of just going round and asking. Find out the bars which are run by English and just ask them. If it is a British bar then they would love English in there. And the other good thing is that it is mainly day time when they want you. The money is not good but I was able live off it with my friends so that was something!
Check out this website, it has useful information on many different places to go to at night. All written in French, but it has the names, addresses and phone numbers and entry prices of many places in Hammamet
