What are the prices of drinks in bars and clubs in Mauritius?
Alcohol, especially the local rum, is very cheap in Mauritius compared to most parts of Europe and all clubs and bars typically feature a great variation on rum drinks.
Beer prices in an average bar in the seaside towns are typically Rs 60-70 for a 33cl glass or bottle. A glass of house wine, red, white or rosé, is around Rs 80-100 and cocktails usually start at around Rs 100-150 depending on location and venue.
In the popular night spots you can expect to pay around Rs 100 for a 33cl beer and Rs 150 for a UK style pint.
Several seaside clubs cater almost exclusively to visitors (tourists) from the UK, France and Germany and as such set their prices to reflect the prices in these countries, only slightly lower.
The luxury hotels often practice the unofficial “cheap for tourists policy” with similar prices to that of western Europe, only slightly lower.
For lower prices and more local flavour, try to steer clear of the upmarket hotels and main beach roads and instead head for the smaller bars and restaurants away from the beach.
