Off resort, there are quite a few opportunities, all of which will require a drive from where you are staying.
Imagine is the area’s newest dance spot, as mentioned…in a cave. it is kind of in the middle of nowhere, thus if you are looking to try a few places, it is not too convenient
Hotspot is also a cave located bar, more chillout than dance and centrally located in Bavaro, which also offers Mangu and Arieto…two popular nightclubs close to the Hotspot (5 minutes cab).
At Palma Real Shopping, you have Hard Rock Cafe, offering live music some nights, as well as Montecristo’s…more of a Latino bar.
I was able to enjoy the evening at The Photo Bar ( Casa de Piedra)on Friday night…live music…coffee house…bistro ambience, located in Cortecito. Food was excellent…I will be making this a regular Friday stop!
As you can see, if you want to kick it up a notch, there is no problem…it just requires a ride to get there!
