The Caribana Club At 8220 West Bellfort Ave.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

This is a later location of the Caribana. It was originally located at 2413 Rice Blvd, and in addition to being the place to go for live reggae, it was well-known for its infamous 3-for-1 drink specials. It has been discussed here previously, and a forum search should turn up multiple mentions, probably in one of the Rice Village threads.

The address is now Riddims Club, which I've never heard of.  Cool Runnings Jamaican Grill is the only business in that center I've been to.


I think there was a shooting or small riot in the parking lot of the club maybe as much as 20 years ago.  That may have had as much to do with the c-store on the end as the club.  I have no idea when it closed.


Per Wiki - Riddim is the Jamaican Patois pronunciation of the English word "rhythm". In the context of reggae, dancehall and séga music, it refers to the instrumental accompaniment to a song and is synonymous with the rhythm section. Wikipedia
