Entertainment & Nightlife in Panama

For the best in entertainment and nightlife, you should look to Panama City, as no other city in Panama rivals it. There is plenty to do in the city once the sun sets, though it is much more of a party town than a cradle of the arts. Because it is so hot by day, the night is an especially inviting time to explore the city. The entertainment and nightlife centres are Bella Vista/Marbella (Calle Uruguay area), Casco Viejo and El Cangrejo. The entertainment tends more toward high culture in Casco Viejo, with its Teatro Nacional and jazz venues, while the scene in the other areas is more about casinos, drinking and dancing the night away.

Most clubs in Panama City start late, some not opening their doors until midnight, and not really getting busy until about 2 am, with the partying then continuing all night. The music you will likely hear is merengue, salsa, or reggaeton.

Bella Vista has the most densely packed selection of bars and clubs, near Calle Uruguay, and gets very busy on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. You could begin the night in S6is (Calle Uruguay), which is a cocktail lounge and DJ bar, then head to Club Velvet (Plaza New York, Calle 53), which provides an eclectic mix of dance music late into the night. There are many other clubs to try up and down the street. For the late-night and ever popular dance and drink parties that visitors of Panama City expect, the constant rotation of trendy clubs on Calle Uruguay, such as K'os, People and Privé, reliably deliver.

Casco Viejo provides a more bohemian nightlife, centred around Plaza Bolivar. You will find well established venues such as La Casona and Relic Bar (Plaza Bolivar) providing live music, dancing and drinks. Platea (Avenida Central and Avenida A) plays live salsa and jazz.

If in El Cangrejo you can try Caffe Pomodoro which is a popular starting point for those interested in then heading to the casinos in the area afterwards.
