Welcome to Bubala's by the Sea bar!

Great bars and happy bartenders all over town!


Entertainment in Provincetown can be as simple as sitting on a bench in front of Town Hall and watching the entire world go by or as exhilarating as a drag show which makes you forget that it’s really not Judy Garland or Marilyn Monroe on stage. Big names and no names share the stage. It’s all about fun and that’s what we all need, especially when we’re on vacation!
