The Ultimate Casco Viejo Bar Hopping Night
The sleepy historic area of Casco Viejo, Panama comes alive at night and one the best ways to experience it is by bar hopping! Here is my guide on how to have the ultimate bar hopping night – visiting 7 bars, consuming 7 drinks, and only spending $25.
Get Your Night Tour Kit
Paying $8 – $10 for a simple mixed drink and $20 cover charges can take the fun out of bar hopping so the key to keeping the night affordable is by getting a Soy del Casco Night Tour Kit. The kit is just $25 and includes…
– A pass that gets you FREE ENTRY into Casco’s coolest bars including Relic, 1688, La Septima Central, Lazotea, Zaza, Casa Jaguar, and Gatto Blanco… SAVING YOU MONEY (some these bars typically charge $20 cover)
– 7 drink tickets that get you a free welcome drink at each bar (only includes drinks made with Skyy Vodka, Ron Abuelo, Seco, Seco Platinum, or 507 Cerveza)
– A map to help you easily navigate to all of the bars
Getting your pass is easy! Just visit this link and select the date you would like to use your pass, follow the checkout instructions, and you’ll receive a confirmation email with details on where you can pickup your pass in Casco Viejo or have it delivered to you.
Once armed with your kit and crew you are ready to have the ultimate bar hopping night in Casco Viejo! The kit is valid on the day you choose from 6 pm – 3 am so you can start or end at whatever time you like, but here’s my guide on how to try and make it to all seven bars in one night.
Start the night off at the beautiful Lazotea Rooftop at Hotel Casa Panama. This is a fantastic spot to have a drink and view the lit up Panama City skyline in the distance.
Go from the rooftop to the underground setting of Relic for your next drink. It’s located on the bottom floor of Luna’s Castle Hostel with a large outdoor terrace and a cave-like indoor bar.
Located upstairs inside Luna’s Castle is 1688, a craft cocktail bar overlooking Relic.
After three drinks in it’s time to the Gatto Blanco Rooftop for some sexy house music!
Ready to start dancing? Head over to Zaza, a funky indoor lounge that starts as a restaurant and then converts over to a party place at night. Zaza usually charges $10 cover so be sure to flash your Soy del Casco pass!
La Septima Central is one of the newest hotspots in Casco, and the place can get packed! There’s usually a $20 cover charge so flash your pass and walk in for free.
Casa Jaguar is one of the wildest places to party in Panama City! Enjoy electronic music on the outdoor terrace or head inside for a mix of Latin and crossover tunes.
