Dining, Nightlife & Casinos

Bars and Restaurants


Some say our country's capital is the Caribbean New York, because Santo Domingo is a city that never sleeps.


Here it seems that people are always awake. Parties begin early with "happy hour," which continues on with dinner at amazing restaurants. People often finish their evenings late into the morning at our bars and discotheques. However, you should know that many bars outside of hotels have to close at midnight during the week, and at two in the morning during the weekend. Yet many bars will still allow the tourists to stay out as late as they would like.


Santo Domingo is a mecca of nightlife in the country. It has the greatest entertainment in the Caribbean, with trendy drinking establishments, bars, discotheques, casinos, restaurants, theaters and cinemas. In addition, Dominican beach resorts also offer a variety of musicals and shows of all kinds every evening.
