Casco Life

Nightlife in Casco Viejo, Panama

One of the things I enjoy the most of living here is the fact that “going out” is as easy as walking to my favorite restaurant or bar. Somehow I realized there is no guide with all the contacts of Restaurants, Bars and other businesses in the Casco, so here it goes:


Ego & Narciso: One beside the other at Plaza Bolivar. Wonderful peruvian tapas at Ego and very good italian food at Narciso. You can order from both, no problem! the owner is thinking on opening a third one in the same plaza… so coming soon!  262-2045

CasaBlanca: casual dinning at Plaza Bolivar. 212-0040

Platea & Scena: Scena is a nice formal restaurant above Platea which is our favorite jazz bar. They also have live music most nights, ranging from salsa to rock. Located on Calle 1era, in front of the old Club Union.  228-4011

Casuale: great mix of Argentinian food in two ambiances: formal and lounge. Location: Calle 1era… at the side of Arco Properties! (place commercial here… =)   228-1017

Buzios: Brazilian inspired, meditarrenean food. Relaxed ambiance, outside seating, ocean view. Location: Calle 1era, at the side of the French Embassy. 228-9045
