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, Nomada Eatery, 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 Ron Abuelo (local dark rum), Seco (local white rum), or Balboa (local beer). Please do not purchase if you do not like rum or beer.
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 pick up your pass in Casco Viejo.
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.
The pickup point for the bar hopping pass is Nomada Eatery so you can also grab your first drink here. They also have delicious sandwiches, burgers, & more if you need to fill up before starting the tour.
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. If you’re hungry, be sure to stop at El Corazon on the way up for some tasty Filipino street food.
After three drinks in it’s time to the Gatto Blanco Rooftop for some sexy house music!
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.
