St Ives Nightlife

Nightlife in St Ives is Chilled with a capital ‘C’

There’s a great, chilled out nightlife in St Ives and it’s forever changing.

Ask us for our top tips when you arrive although if you’re planning on going clubbing you’re probably in the wrong place (no clubs here)!

St Ives is great for live music (every night in the summer), sundowner cocktails, beach BBQs, sunset hikes, roof terraces, friendly bars and pubs, al fresco dining and beers on the beach.

Visit our NIGHTLIFE page for more info.
