If you’re looking for a great night out with live music, tasty drinks and unbeatable company, then the Spinning Wheel in Hamilton is the night spot for you.
Situated on Court Street it has been around since 1970, when it opened its doors to the locals providing ethnic sounds for black people in Bermuda, something until then that just wasn’t available.
These days, it still retains its local roots and has grown into an institution in Bermuda for locals and tourists alike looking for a fabulous night out. You’ll see Bermudians supping away on their favourite local drinks such as Rum Swizzles while enjoying the live music and entertainment in the upper level of the venue.
The Spinning Wheel is a great alternative to the usual bars and clubs found in Hamilton and ideal to relax and unwind with great bands and great service.
The Spinning Wheels club was founded by Gladwin Ming and Charles Burgess in the seventies and, apparently, named after a song by Blood, Sweat and Tears. They wanted to bring live entertainment to the masses and a place for locals to hang out – little would they have known in the 70s, how the club would develop and grow into the powerhouse and mainstay of entertainment that it is today. Today it is run by Mr Burgess’s sons Steve and Bruce Simmons.
The venue has been host to all manner of nights and festivities including the Black Family Productions event which celebrated those making contributions to the Bermudian economy, to world business, to medicine and to education as well as the Island’s cultural heroes.
The Spinning Wheel has four bars, a night club, a sports lounge and a restaurant that serves up delicious Bermudian cuisine – something that tourists just have to experience, it’s mouth-watering.
Upstairs at the venue, ‘Chewsticks’ provides live musical on Saturday, where you can chill out or get down – depending on your taste – with jazz, reggae, rock and other genres. Chewsticks is also a great showcase for many singers, rappers, musicians, poets, DJs and dancers and provides a platform for local artists to shine. And you can get down downstairs on the lower floor with great DJs spinning funky tunes at the ‘Grown Folks Disco’.
During the week, it is free entry, however, there is a cover charge for entertainment at Chewsticks at the weekend. It is open every day from midday to 3am. Monday to Friday sees a happy hour, where you can get scrummy drinks at a bargain price, as well as tasty bar treats to line your tummy.
You’ll find it at 33 Court Street, Hamilton City. Pop along with friends or go along yourself and mix with friendly locals for a fun, memorable time.
