The Best Place to Party in Bournemouth

Aruba offers a party atmosphere, all year round.  

Aruba beach club, located on Bournemouth Pier, is the ultimate party destination. With an extensive cocktail menu and the largest UK rum selection outside of London, it’s easy to see why our Caribbean inspired bar was named the “best place to party in Bournemouth” by Cosmopolitan magazine! Boasting an 180 degree view of the golden sandy beach from our sun terrace, a large island bar and the best cocktails in town, Aruba is the only place to party on the beach.

Cocktail Masterclasses

Cocktail master classes are a great opportunity to get behind the bar to mix, muddle and shake with the best in the business. On arrival at the venue you will be greeted with a glass of prosecco and seated at your own private area within the bar. From there you will be guided through how to make your chosen cocktail and a given few tips of the trade by one of our highly trained mixologists. You then get your chance to be a star tender and jump behind the bar to show off your new knowledge and make your chosen cocktails.
