He gestures to buy me a drink from the other side of the bar. I laugh and gesture a "no thanks." Later that night, I find myself laughin' and talkin' in his company.Jimmy's in MoBay is a fun, safe, and packed place to be when you want to go out in MoBay. The music covers '80s, hip-hop, reggae, and soca. The crowd is mixed, with locals and tourists, and in my opinion, it's worth dancing with locals and getting to know them since they truly capture Jamaican spirit.The lighting is great and two bars hosted on two different levels cater to those who want to dance and drink and those who prefer sitting and listening to some live music. I found myself dancing away and then wandering upstairs to take a break to get to know my dance partner(s)! The place overlooks the water, so when you feel hot, it's good to get away from the crowd and watch the waves and cool off. There is a cover, about $10, to get in, and it depends if you pay. I was there almost every night and the staff became like family for the Easter break. It's safe and worth checking out along Gloucester Avenue, especially if you like dancing with some fine people! They have a local band up until 8pm playing pan and local reggae tunes, and then it's the DJs place after that! I liked this place because not only did it have wicked dance tunes and great space, but it had two floors for different atmospheres, and above all, the staff is exceptionally considerate and respectable.
I met people from 17 to 45, so if you're (travelling alone especially or with a group) looking for place to people watch, dance, lounge, and drink, this place is it in MoBay--no doubt.

You can drink juice and rum all night for free. NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN ABOUT! Now after about five or eight drinks, you'll be ready to do every Jamaican dance that they call out in the club and boy do they have a million different dances. I could only keep up with the stuff that I had seen in a music video, but the locals do know how to party. Lil’ Jon and the Eastside Boyz were in the house so they kicked off the dance contest. And the local ladies gave you a show that's too HOT 4 TV! Make this a stop on your trip to Monetgo Bay and you'll have fun!
