Barlovento opened in Casco Viejo last year and they’ve hosted several great events during their first year being open (I won the costume contest dressed as a Diablo Rojo during their Halloween party).  They have an open air rooftop terrace with trendy decor overlooking Casco’s historic streets – it’s definitely one of my favorite places to enjoy a drink.

I went to their one year anniversary celebration on Thursday and they threw a great party!  The chic open air rooftop set the perfect ambience to celebrate the occasion. We arrived at 9:30 pm so we were able to take advantage of the open bar of Absolut Vodka until 11 pm.  Once the open bar ended my friends and I were in the mood to keep partying so we got a bottle of Absolut to split between the five of us.  The music was great – they had DJs Sara Castro and Edward Allen playing electro mixes.  Then at midnight they launched fireworks off the rooftop and had a spectacular show.

Thank you Barlovento for all the good times this year and I hope you all have a successful year two!

Here’s an Instagram video I captured during the fireworks:

Barlovento is located on Ave Central and Calle 10 in Casco Viejo.  Visit their Facebook page for information on their latest events.

Experience Panama


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
