Panama City Nightlife is by far some of the best nightlife that Central America has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a trendy club or a local dive bar, you will find it all in the Panama City Bar and Club Scene. If you’re looking for a good club, Calle Uruguay is definitely the best spot. But if you’re looking for a good bar, Casco Viejo has recently experienced a surge in bars, ranging from Jazz Clubs and lounges, to American style city bars.Here is a list of some of the most popular bars and clubs in Panama City.www.relicbar.com
Calle 9na, Casco Viejo Relic Bar is definitely one of the best and most unique bars in all of Panama City. It is also one of the only Bars in Panama City that you can be sure will be crowded, any night of the week. Located in the cellar of a gorgeous building in Casco Viejo, this Bar takes full advantage of the naturally beautiful architecture of the building. The stone walls date back hundreds of years, and the custom made furniture and lighting creates an atmosphere nearly impossible to mimic. The music selection is unmatched, offering a wide variety, ranging from classic and indie rock to electronic tango. A unique aspect of the bar is that they have a large indoor air conditioned section as well as an outdoor patio. The outdoor patio feels more like a funky German beer garden rather than a typical Panama City outdoor Bar.La Casona de las Brujas
Calle 10, located in Plaza Herrera in Casco Viejo
La Casona is definitely one of the, if not THE funkiest bar in the city. They are located in the heart of Casco Viejo, in a huge empty, warehouse building. The vibe is definitely “artsy.” The crowd is always well-rounded and interesting. They are known to throw a good party, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. If they don’t have a DJ planned, you can be sure they have hired one of the best bands in Panama City to entertain the masses with some good live music

Scena y Platea

By David Rush for Panama-Guide.com – There is a new hot spot in the adult nightlife market – The Crazy Horse Panama. It’s located in El Dorado, which is less than 10 minutes from almost anywhere in the city. Several taxis had no problem getting there for me and a few friends. There’s several other clubs in the area, but none with this approach to adult entertainment in Panama. They’ve put together American-style adult entertainment with a Latin flavor. The club is couples friendly and interaction with the entertainers while on stage and off is encouraged. The Crazy Horse is open Monday thru Saturday starting at 8pm until the last customers has left. The staff is bilingual and they’ve got one of the most stocked bars I’ve seen in Panama. I would definitely recommend checking out this establishment and enjoying the atmosphere.I found the place easily enough using the map on the flyer I was given in Obarrio. The same map is available on their web site www.TheCrazyHorsePanama.com. They are located behind the Fantastic Casino and above the BBQ Sports restaurant. The parking lot was crowded, but the valet/doorman quickly found me a spot and helped me get parked. The entrance is located at the top of a flight of stairs and could take a second to locate if you are unsure where to go. Just look for the big white signs.The doorman and host that greeted me upon entering the club both spoke English and were very helpful. When I entered the club, I immediately spotted the bar. As this was my first time there, I figured it would be a good place to start. It seems that the girls enjoy the bar area too. There were several situated there that greeted me with big smiles and a couple kisses on the cheeks.I inquired about the drink prices and was told all beers are $4 and mixed drinks start at $6 with top shelf liquors at $7. They carry some popular American liquors that are not always found at Panamanian bars including Crown Royal and Jagermiester (two of my favorites). Bottle service is also available and very reasonably priced. I grabbed a Crown and ginger and surveyed the room.They have a dancer on stage continuously and occasionally 2 girls will perform together. The DJ spoke Spanish with a lot of English mixed in. There was some Latin dance and Reggaeton music being played but with a lot of English pop or rock mixed in. This is a welcomed change from the usual Electronica then ballad format I hear at most other clubs. The volume was just right, not too loud as is another regular problem with nightclubs in Panama. I was told by the floor host that they try to play music that the customers would like to hear most.I spotted at least a dozen entertainers either on stage, sitting with guys or at the bar. When I asked about the number of girls available, I was told they have 20 girls now. It is a new club and supposedly, there are 20 more on the way. The girls were available for $10 table dances and they have a VIP room where dances are $30. The girls get fully nude in the VIP and like everywhere else in the club, touching and interaction are encouraged. There’s also a brand new room in the VIP where “full service” is available for $90 per hour and I’m told that they’re building 5 more. This is great because if you’d just like to spend some quick time with a girl or girls, you don’t need to pay to take her out or have anywhere to take her. What a welcome change from the US and Canada. I was also told that you can get a Jacuzzi show that was 2 songs long. I’m not sure what that is, but it sounds like fun.
Cafe Barko – For the older crowd, but offers a relaxing atmosphere with sushi and ocean breezes
Another welcome change is that all of the girls in The Crazy Horse are available to take out with you (for whatever you please). For those of you who are not familiar with Panama adult nightlife, strip clubs are more a preview of what you could have by simply choosing which lady you’d like to take home. All you need to do is decide and then notify any of the floor hosts or waitresses, who will happily help you with anything else you’d like to know. At The Crazy Horse, you’ll pay a less than usual bar fee of $100 to take the girl out for the night and then you can bargain with the girl herself for how much she’d like for anything else. In Panama, clubs are the only licensed, safe and truly legal option. I was told that these girls are tested weekly for all STDs and you never have to worry about one stealing from you, as the club is only a quick call away.
The girls were friendly and quicker than other places to approach you and start a conversation. Several caught my eye as being especially beautiful and most seemed to be having a good time. The girls there have a feel of being less rough and ‘experienced’ than in other clubs. They were more relaxed and easy to get along with. Several actually spoke a little English too and one told me that the club gives them English lessons.
The club itself is on the small side and at first seemed cramped but after sitting there a while it seemed cozier and wasn’t confined space wise. I enjoyed the comfortable couches that line both walls and had a perfect view of the stage. The girls were not overly aggressive and I received several table dances that were enjoyable.
Overall, it’s a nice club with a good change of pace for the Panama strip club scene. There were very few negatives that I saw and I am sure those will work themselves out as their customer base continues to grow and the club has time to work out the kinks. No cover charge or drink minimum was a welcome plus too as some other clubs have gone crazy with what they’re charging at the door or for cheap beer and booze. The Crazy Horse is definitely worth a visit and a good place to bring the boys or even the wife or girlfriend, if she enjoys a night out.
Differentiating between a bar and a nightclub can be difficult these days in Panama City because so many bars have live DJ music, occasional live music, and maybe even a small dance floor and chill-out lounge. Popular hotel bars include the Decapolis , the Peach Monkeys Lounge at the Sheraton Panama, and the Veneto Hotel’s lobby bar. Happy hours are the norm here. Office workers spill into bars after work for their 5 to 7pm happy hours; the best deals, however, are at bars that cater to late-night revelers: To reel people in before the late crowd, these bars offer happy hours from 10pm to midnight, and even free drinks (usually for women).
The Amador Causeway is an up-and-coming nightlife spot, with new bars and restaurants opening monthly. As a nightspot, the area tends to draw groups of friends, and an upscale, older crowd. The Wine Bar has the same offerings as their El Cangrejo location, but with a better view (located at the Brisas del Amador area). At the end of the Causeway, within the Flamenco Shopping Plaza, are a handful of bars, dance spots, and live-music venues such as Traffic Island, with Latin music and cocktails, and a windswept veranda with city views; or try Bar Baviera, the Ancla Sport Bar, or Karnak. These nightspots are all next to each other in an American-style minimall — you could head here and stroll around until you find something to your liking. Closer to the city and the Figali Convention Center is Las Pencas, with live music on weekends and folkloric presentations every Wednesday at 8pm. Bennigan’s Irish Grill at the end of the Amador Causeway is also a well-known nighttime hotspot with Panamanian’s and foreigners alike.

Because we are talking Panama Hookers, Whores, Prostitutes, Massage Parlors, Escorts,Call Girls, Strip Bars and Sex Clubs in Panama City the Republic of Panama along with true stories by Panama Jack in Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua
Hookers, Hookers, Everywhere… Sex Tourism in Panama
Well you may think that you found Her in ether in Panama, Costa Rica or Columbia the real Her you have been looking for all of you life.
I have news for you, that beautiful women that you have fallen in love is just an allusion brought on from being too old or having a cunt of a wife for far to long.
They have a saying here in Latin America and it go’s like this. ” If her lips are moving and she is talking to you, she is lying to you”
This is hard to understand, you see she makes you dick hard, even if it takes a little Viagra to help and all the blood that is flowing through you brain is now being redirected to that area between your legs which makes it hard to think straight.
It is like when my boss says to me, I am talking about myself Panama Jack the editor of the Panama Visitors Guide, why are you sending $3,000.00 a month to some girl in Costa Rica. My reply was to him now quote me. ” I am 55 years old and I have not been in love with a women for over 25 years and it is only 10% of what I make. He says to me that makes sense.
What I did not know at the time that the prostitute that I was sending all this money to in Costa Rica Jenny Porter was a hard core lesbian and that she had no interest in being my wife like she had told me and that when she financially came clean about about how she felt about me in front of her gay friends, Quote here ” I want to let you know that I find you Ugly Old and Disgusting.
Now you may think that I am an idiot for sending money to a girl in Costa Rica and that may be true, I did not check her out correctly.
You see I met with her family and I met with her grandfather, an American who was stationed in Panama, David Porter who when being released from U.S. Military service at the Panama Canal in 1959 decided instead of going home to the United States to his wife and 6 children to slip over the boarder into Costa Rica and hook up with Jenny Porters grandmother they had a daughter together, Patricia Porter, Jenny Porters Mother.
Well I asked Jenny Porter Grandfather if it was at all possible that a 20 year old beautiful Costa Rican Girl like Jenny Porter could fall in love with a 55 year old man like myself.
David porter told me that Costa Rica is Magical Place and that this is very possible in Costa Rica and that Jenny would have never brought me to meet her family if she did not feel deeply for me. He did not tell me at the time that, as I understand it today that he was also Jenny’s father and that he had to buy her a last name from someone else, Melendez and that later on in our relationship Jenny needed some money from me to get rid of that last name, because the man they bought it from was dying and he wanted money from David and Jenny to take that Melendez name off of Jenny’s birth record.
Of course this is what came out of Jenny Porters mouth and if you here lips are moving she is lying.
So I have decided to write a book about the Prostitutes in Costa Rica and Panama so that in the future these online predators and casino hooker who fleas elderly men out of their life savings and hard earned cash my not do so without having had a warning.
If her lips are moving she is lying, she did not loose her cell phone, her mother does not have cancer and she needs money to help her, her bother who most likely is really her husband or boyfriend does not need money to get out of jail.
By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide - It’s a dirty job but someone’s got to do it. Long-time readers will know that I rarely shrink away from the opportunity to write about hookers and the sex trade. Panamanian authorities want it both ways, to be able to say they are doing something to control the sex trade but then again they are not doing a very good job. There are “areas of increased tolerance,” whore houses that have been operating for decades, but the government has a cow if someone puts up a website in English promoting Panama as a destination for sex tourism. Finding a hooker in Panama is one of the easiest things to do, but prostitution is illegal in Panama. But if prostitution is illegal then why do they have mandatory clinics for all of the hookers? How can you required a sanctioned hooker to carry a card from the Ministry of Health saying she’s good to go if prostitution is illegal? And if they are seeing the girls at the health clinics every week, why don’t they make sure they are all registered and working legally? And if you’re going to bust someone in the sex trade, how come you only go after foreign owners (specifically, Americans) and not the Panamanians who own the seedier whore houses? As you can see, I still have a lot of questions about this whole thing. At least the homework is fun.
The Cotton Club: There’s a new place that’s about to open (supposedly) on Via España, just below the El Panama Hotel. It’s called the Cotton Club and there are a couple of questions I have about this place. First of all, according to a source in the immigration office, they have not handed out any new “alternadora” visas since the new director Ricardo Vargas took over. Their line is that he inherited the system as it is and is doing the best he can to manage things the way they are, within the confines of existing law. Perfect. Party Line. Got it. But then how is the Cotton Club going to open, I ask? If, according to existing law, the “alternadora” visas can not be transferred from one club operator to another then are there going to be any “alternadoras” working at the Cotton Club? Or are they all going to be Panamanian hookers? Remember that one of the main reasons they went after the Midnight Club (supposedly) was because their “cupos” for the “alternadora” visas were assigned to the Life Girls club but the sign out front said Midnight Club. And, if the guys at immigration are right and no new “alternadora” visas have been issued for the Cotton Club, then what’s going on? Lovers of transparent government want to know.
Smell the Farts in Church: The other thing is that the Cotton Club is only about 200 meters from La Iglesia Del Carmen in Panama City. And someone told me (remains to be verified in Panamanian law) that you can’t have a whore house within like 500 meters of a Church. According to this picture, the Cotton Club can’t open in this location. And who are the owners of the Cotton Club, anyway? Is there any chance that the raid against the Midnight Club (which is practically right across the street, just a little further away from the church) and the opening of the Cotton Club are related? Whatever. Just more questions I have about this industry in Panama.
Why Should I Care? I don’t. The guys that care are the rest of the club owners who don’t want to see another option come open. Every owner in town wants to be the only guy operating in what is now a very competitive business. The owners “steal” the girls from other clubs by offering them better working conditions or chances to earn money. And the girls know where the guys go, and they go where they get the best payday. And here’s the kicker – the club owners who are following the rules (law) and playing the game the “right” way have the biggest complaints about the clubs that are not operating legally. For example…
Check Out The “Felice” Club: Not for the faint of heart. It’s in Santa Ana just up the street from Nelson’s on the corner. Again, I did my best “dumb wandering Gringo” routine and the table guy filled me in on the place in thirty seconds. They have rooms upstairs where the girls live and they will go for $15 bucks a pop. There’s no cover and national beers at $1.25 a bottle. Have a great time. There are places like this, low end whore houses, all over town. They are in the worst parts of town in places you really don’t want to go unless you know what you’re doing. But most of them don’t have any kind of permits or permissions to be working in the sex business but they’ve been there forever and have paid off all the right people decades ago.
10% Entertainment Tax: The government gets 10% of every $30.00 glass of champagne that you buy a stripper. Betcha didn’t know that one. In Las Vegas there are more than 180 strip clubs and most of them are open 24 hours a day. They charge $7.00 bucks a beer, and of every beer they sell .70 cents goes to the governmant. The Panamanian government should have a huge fiscal incentive to make sure that all of the hookers are on the books because they would make a whole hell of a lot more money in taxes. The increased revenue would more than make up for any additional costs required for manpower, etc. It would be a money-maker. Shake it for La Patria, baby…
So, How Many Hookers Are There, Anyway? Excellent question. And, no one knows the answer. There are about 1,000 registered sex workers all over the country, including foreign “alternadoras” as well as Panamanians who are registered to work in massage parlors and the like. But there are an estimated 4,000 hookers who are “independents” or working off the books. They are not registered or required to go to any kind of health screening or education. For the most part they are either Panamanians or foreigners who have been through the system a couple of times and they know there are significant fiscal incentives to remain off the books, and little down-side if they don’t.
Busted For Being A Hooker? It’s an administrative process, not criminal. That means there’s no chance of jail time if you’re caught. A cop can catch you getting some action in the middle of Parque Porras and the worst thing that will happen is a $20 fine from the “corregidoria.” Have a great day. C’ya next time. All of the corregidores have seen the hookers who routinely work in their areas of responsibility, especially the Panamanians who can’t be deported. The point is this – there’s not much of a down side even if they get busted, and in any case the chances that they will get caught are slim in any case.
What Does It Cost to Be Legal: Short answer, about $250 bucks a month. That’s the total cost for a girl to be on the books, pay her dues and fines, go to the clinics, get the visas, etc. And that’s not counting the cost of clothes, those black leather boots with the 6″ spiked heels and the short red mini-skirt. Independents just need a cell phone and a pad to work from. They advertise in the “personals” section of all the major newspapers and turn tricks like it’s going out of style. OK, this is a test. I’m going to see how many cell phone numbers I can come up with in ten minutes on the Internet for hookers in Panama. Ready? Go!…
That Was Ten Minutes: No kiddin’. I didn’t even really have to try. It’s not like they’re hiding or anything. As part of my deep and probing research into this subject I wandered over to the center of gravity for Panamanian hooker-dom, Via Veneto. I walked around the inside of the casino for awhile, then walked out of the front door of the hotel and headed for Via España. I had barely cleared the Dunkin Donuts, and doing my best to look like a gringo who had been in town for about thirty seconds, I was approached by the guy who sits on the stoop in front of the Oasis Club, handing out cards and dragging people in to get a “massage.” I asked “what kind of a place is it, a bar or what?” Yeah, there’s a bar. Come on in and have a good time. The funny part is that when I followed the dude into the massage parlor there were two people there in the entrance who are supposed to be the “meet and greet” people to steer you through the process. They were both talking on the cell phone, and this was the side of the conversation I could hear:
“Yes sir. It’s $30 an hour for the massage. You pay that up front and then head into the back with the girl of your choice.”
“Like I said, sir. You pay here at the front desk and then you head into the back with the girl, so the cost of the massage is paid up front. Then later, you know, whatever happens between you and her is up to you.”
“I really can’t say. Like I said whatever you two work out is up to you.”
“About $75 for full service, less for anything else. All-right. Great. We’re open all night. Looking forward to seeing you.”
Independent Confirmation of my In-Depth Journalistic Investigation: Just had to check their website under “prices” and there it is, all laid out. Not hard at all.
Stop by The Oasis on Via Veneto or call The Oasis for in-room delivery at 264-4785 or 264-1351 to get the best value for your dollar. We offer the lowest prices for basic and full-service massages in the city, not to mention some of the most beautiful ladies to entertain and please you.

$100.00 Full-service massage with 2 girls in our place.
Get a $5 discount of any full-service massage after 2:30pm by printing out our coupon! We accept cash, travelers checks, American Express, Visa and Mastercard
What? You Want to Stamp my Passport? Any of the girls who come to work as “alternadoras” get a big, fat stamp in their passport which basically screams “hooker” to the world. Many times girls will show up at a place to work but not want to have their passport stamped and they want to work off of the books. That exposes the owner to the same kinds of problems that the owner of the Midnight Club had with a bunch of Colombian “tourists” working as independents under his roof.
That’s It For Now: It’s late and my eyes are getting blurry. This is a subject that deserves my full attention for awhile, just because if Panama did it right they could turn this place into a real magnet for the “entertainment” industry. And doing it wrong leads to dumb wandering gringos (or gringas) who get caught up in the wrong crowd and end up doing 20 hard in La Joyita. Just ask Debra Ann Ridgley who was having a lot of fun with her nice new Colombian friends that she met at the casino. Caveat emptor is always in effect, and even more so for the intrepid international sex traveler.
Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie announced on Tuesday that she had a preventive mastectomy after learning she had a gene that significantly raised her risk of breast cancer. Here’s a crash course in the procedure Jolie had and why.
Q: What kind of surgery did Jolie have?
Angelina Jolie’s Relationship With Her Mother and How It Inspired Her Double Mastectomy
By Taryn Ryder
PostsBy Taryn Ryder | omg! – 8 hours agoEmail 0Share 0Recommend0Tweet0Print
Angelina Jolie made the brave decision to undergo a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carried the BRCA1 gene that made it extremely likely (an 87% chance) that she would get breast cancer or (a 50% chance) ovarian cancer.
Jolie, 37, was very close with her mother Marcheline Bertrand, who passed away at the age of 56 after losing her seven-year battle with ovarian cancer.
“She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms,” Jolie wrote Tuesday in an op-ed for the New York Times: “But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was.”
Bertrand lived long enough to meet the eldest three of Jolie and her fiancé Brad Pitt’s six children — Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh.
Aside from Pitt and the kids they share together, Jolie’s mother was the most important person and influence in her life. Jolie was estranged from her father, actor Jon Voight, for many years after he and Bertrand divorced in 1978. “She raised me,” Jolie has said. Bertrand dabbled in acting, but she gave it all up to raise her two children, and it’s clear that Jolie admired her mother’s strength as a single parent.
Bertrand was a very private person, so Jolie would visit her all the time at her apartment in Beverly Hills, California. When speaking publicly, though, Jolie couldn’t help but praise her mother and share what a special connection they had.

“I will never be as good a mother as she was,” Jolie told CBS News of her mother in 2011. “I will try my best, but I don’t think I could ever be. She was grace incarnate, the most generous, loving — she’s better than me.”
Jolie remained close with her mom until the very end. So, it’s no surprise that after watching Bertrand’s health struggles first hand, Jolie would take action to ensure history doesn’t repeat itself.
“There is no longevity on my mother’s side of the family,” Jolie told Esquire in 2010. “My grandmother also died young, so my mother always thought it could happen to her. But she lived to see her grandchildren, lived to see both me and my brother in a nice place. She was a real mother that way. She waited till everyone was okay. Then she closed her eyes.”
She closed her eyes in January 2007, and Jolie, Pitt, and her brother James Haven, were all by Bertrand’s side when she passed. “There are no words to express what an amazing woman and mother she was,” Jolie and Haven told People in a statement. “She was our best friend.”
Jolie was heartbroken after her mother died. However, she continued living a life her mother would be extremely proud of. Jolie now has six children and is planning a wedding in the future with Pitt.
“I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer,” Jolie writes in the New York Times.
Words her mother would most certainly be proud of.
