Overview

This cave-like, stone-walled spot is a haven for hipsters in Casco Viejo. Housed underneath the popular Luna Castle Hostel, its outdoor patio and often crowded inside space offers a down-to-earth spot for affordable drinks and youthful conversation.

This is a pretty epic bar. I got there on the earlier side of the evening and hung out with a bunch of backpackers who were staying upstairs at the hostel. Great people. We sat at one of the tables in the patio area, which...More

Every time I'm in Panama I make it a priority to pass through Relic. It's located in Casco Viejo which is my favorite place in the city to spend evenings, and the crowd is diverse. I think my favorite part of the bar is the...More

This bar is a Casco institution — you can't visit without having a drink here. The atmosphere subtly super cool in an open courtyard set between old buildings, and a cave-like indoor space. Full of locals and travelers, it's always an eclectic, super friendly crowd...More

We had a fun time here as there is plenty of people, both locals and travellers, it has plenty of cheap drinks and a good outdoor area.

I've come back to Panama City many times over the years and my favourite place to party there is Relic Bar. What's unique about this bar is it is the only bar in Panama City where there is always tourists and locals partying together. If...More

To echo what others have written, the backyard courtyard is an attractive space, but the bartender (or the manager? young, blondish, short slightly curly hair, tight fitting t-shirt) that I interacted with was unfriendly, and that's probably being generous. He left me with the feeling...More

This place has a pretty casual vibe. My friends and I were dressed for a night on the town and we felt way too overdressed for this place. Most patrons were in jeans and t-shirts. The music was great but the place is so crowded...More

The bar cheap considering the neighbourhood . Gets a bit too crowded on weekends. It's a good place to start the night but not to stay.

The bar opens at 8 and is expensive outside of happy hour. It seems to be run under separate management to castle luna's and is rated as one of the best bars in the old town...? Being Irish I've seen my fair share of bars...More
