Night Club
“It's Secret Island's mission to offer something for everyone. The restaurant has offered live music nearly every night since it opened its doors in April 2018. You might like evening wind downs with acoustic blues and a slow-sipped drink, or maybe you get after it after hours. Either way, keep your eyes on their nightlife lineup. Secret Island turns into a comedy club Tuesday nights followed by Reggae night on Wednesdays throughout the summer. Beyond that, they put on the occasional late-night bikini or dance contest. To top it all off, there's a late-night food menu available no matter the occasion. ”
