Waterfront Bar and Grill

Do not expect any wild nightlife in Port Vila, but if you would like to have a few drinks and a bit of a boogie you can head to the Waterfront Bar and Grill Restaurant. The Waterfront Bar and Grill is the focus of cruising yacht activities in Port Vila, and one of Port Vila’s most popular places to dine, dance and enjoy live entertainment.
