St. Lawrence Gap

“The Gap” offers a lively nightlife and various restaurants for all tastes. Start your night out at one of the local eateries, make your way through several rum shacks and shake it in one of their nightclubs. Locals and tourists enjoy the buzzing atmosphere in this small district, southeast of Bridgetown’s city centre.


The typical Barbadian (or Bajan) dish must include fried flying fish and cou cou, which is similar to polenta and made with cornmeal and okra. Bajan cuisine has influences from all over the world, for example from Creole, Indian, and British culinary traditions. Other famous meals are pepper pot stew, fish cakes, and pumpkin fritters. The Careenage, St. Lawrence Gap, and downtown Bridgetown offer a wide variety of affordable and upscale restaurants – and if you are not in the mood for Bajan food, you will find international cuisine there, too.
