3. Relic Bar

San Felipe, Ciudad de Panamá  (mapwebsite)

Another cool bar in Casco Viejo district. Different from Tantalo’s open-space rooftop vibe, Relic Bar has a tucked-away, cave-like atmosphere. A true hidden gem of a local find, the crowd and music make your night out a bit more funky and modern.

4. Altabar VIP

Calle 48 y Calle Uruguay, Panama City, Panama (mapwebsite)

Calle Uruguay is a lively district filled with upbeat nightlife hotspots. Altabar is one of them, actually one of the best in the area. It’s a two-story complex that includes: a dance floor, privately-reserved VIP tables and an outdoor deck. If you’re looking for a good mix of club and lounge, Altabar is a great choice.

5. Cielo Pool Bar

Calle 48 Este, Ciudad de Panamá (mapwebsite)

Also located in the Calle Uruguay area, right next door to Altabar is Manrey Hotel, which is a modern and sleek establishment. On the top floor,  Cielo Pool Bar is for those yearning for a sophisticated night out. We try to stay away from hotel bars as we typically only recommend local gems, but Cielo is for the true jetsetters who want a chic setting as backdrop to hopping music and a mix of travelers and worldly locals.
