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.

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

Nice bar and outside patio area in the heart of Casco Viejo (Old City). This bar was recommended by multiple people in Panama and although it doesn't quite live up to the hype it was definitely a good experience. We sat outside in the patio...More

Synopsis: Enclaved in Casco Viejo's "old world charm," Relic Bar is positioned at a social intersection of worldly, cost-conscious travelers and local, high-spirited young socialites. It's a popular nightspot because it attracts a uniquely diverse customer base, as it is situated under a popular backpacker's...More
