1. Bocas Wine Trading Company and Lounge – Best Wine Bar

If you’re an admitted wine-o, Bocas Wine is the place for you. They have the best selection of international wines that you’ll find in Bocas along with a tapas menu. The atmosphere is a relaxed alternative to the typically rowdy Bocas nightlife.

2. Om Cafe and Bar – Best International Bar

Om Cafe and Bar’s cuisine is Indian, and the Lotus Flower Sangria is to die for. Sit on the terrace and enjoy some live music, and if you’re hungry, order some naan and authentic Indian cuisine to go with your drinks. The bar overlooks the main street, with a great view to scope out what’s in for the night to come.

3. Barco Hundido – Best Afterhours Hotspot

You’ll find that most of the crowds out drinking on Isla Colon end up at Barco Hundido, fondly referred to as “Wreck Deck.” The dock stretches over a sunken banana boat that is lit at night, super gorgeous. If you’re in for a night of dancing and a potential dip in the water, Barco Hundido is a must.

When it’s time to sit back and enjoy a cold one, head to Toro Loco for drinks. A great place to hang out with locals and watch a few games on T.V., you’ll find traditional bar food and many Ex-Pats with great stories.

With a Happy Hour from 7-8 PM that boasts 75 cent beers and $1.50 mixed drinks, Mondo Taitu is the perfect place to start your night. Mondo Taitu is a hostel and bar, so expect some theme nights and a younger crowd. It’s worth it for the prices!

    Barco is the best late-night spot I’ve been to in Bocas, people really are dancing all night there. I would say the most happening places are Aqua Lounge on Wednesdays and Fridays and Iguana on Mondays Thursdays and Saturdays.

    We showed how we did it up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65vUlYAA-gw on this video.

    Om’s Indian food is delicious I have to check out the wine bar on my next visit.
