I believe there are a couple of pubs near the straw market. But from what I've read in different travel publications, it's not safe to be out on your own in downtown Nassau at night. You'd be much better off to party on the ship. At least that way, when you've had a little too much cheer, you won't have as far to go to get to your room and pass out on your bed If you like listening to a band, check out Michelangelo's Lounge (near the casino). They play rock'n'roll, and they're not bad. Hope you have a good time on your cruise.
