Trader Jacks

Traders Jacks is one of the most popular places in the South Pacific, located at Avarua’s old harbor. Live music and sounds from the best bands on the islands always attract a lot of people. Friday is usually the big night of the week and that is when you will get a chance to meet both tourists and locals!

Bars & Nightlife

A highlight of the Cook Islands is sipping cocktails at a bar fronting the west as the sun slowly slips below the horizon -- there is truly no better way to say farewell to a very special day in paradise. The later nightlife of the Cook Islands is steadily growing with Friday night remaining the main night out for both tourists and locals alike. Most bars on Rarotonga remain open till 2am. Do not expect the same late night on Saturday as the Cook Islanders are a Christian community and usually close all drinking establishments on the stroke of midnight. Furthermore, many of the resorts have their own bars and restaurants at which non-guests are welcome.
