Nightlife and casinos in Macau

macau skylineIn fact, Macao generates more revenue than Las Vegas. It is the oldest European Chinese colony and the last to gain independence from the yoke of colonial domination. However, when you stroll through the streets of Macau today, you can still see the remains of the Portuguese occupation.

Macau by night

The city of Macau now has 33 different casinos. They are all managed by the local government and follow a common set of guidelines and rules.
Macau nightlife is mainly divided into three areas or different categories, downtown, the inner harbour and outer port.

  • Downtown Macau: frequented mainly by day, this area tends to be quieter and more relaxing in the evening
  • Internal harbour: much more peaceful than the external port district
  • External harbour: the most active hub for nightclubs

Bellini Lounge

You would have never guessed, but one of the most user-friendly bars of Macau is located at the casino The Venetian, the largest gaming venue and most popular casino in the city. Despite its luxurious appearance, this lounge bar is very simple and welcoming.


You can enjoy cocktails original and unpublished, and enjoy the largest map of Macao beverages, all in the refined setting of a truly unique bar. You can spend a quiet evening or this bar can be the starting point for your nocturnal sorties.
