MUSIC + NIGHTLIFE IN
Dominican Republic

Music and dancing are an integral part of everyday life in the DR. Whether you find yourself in Santo Domingo, the hub of nightlife and live performances, or in a small village in the center of the country, Dominican beats will echo from corner stores to local clubs, while people dance indoors or even outdoors in parks and public spaces. Experience folkloric music every Friday and Saturday night in Santo Domingo on Plaza de España, or dance the night away to a live son and merengue band on Sundays by the ruins of San Francisco. Bar hop and party in Santiago’s downtown, or discover the “drink” lounges of Puerto Plata, where merengue and bachata dominate. Beach nightlife takes on new meaning in Cabarete, where you can party the night away at a range of bars along the waterfront. Punta Cana’s glitzy nightclubs and marinas are equally popular, pumping house music or offering sophisticated wine bars.

It’s always a good season for live music and dancing in the DR.

Barahona Nightlife

Casual yet lively, Barahona’s nightlife reveals a slice of Dominican culture. In town, you’ll find a handful of sports bars and lounges along the Malecón, open from sunset until the early hours of the morning. Dance, play pool, or simply relax with cocktails across the seafront.

Bávaro Nightlife

Nightlife in the Bávaro area is part and parcel of the beach life. Sun and sea by day, party by night. The options are numerous: an underground cave-turned-disco, a unique Coco Bongo Vegas-style show and nightclub, or a quiet wine bar.

Bávaro, Punta Cana

Bayahíbe Nightlife

Bayahíbe packs a solid punch in nightlife, from sunset beachfront bars to a pulsating dance scene on the weekend. A handful of beachfront bars are popular spots for happy hour, while the local colmado sends merengue and bachata echoes into the village.

Merengue and bachata will fill the air. The area is known for its busy nightlife and the many open bars earn Boca Chica its reputation as a village that never sleeps.

Cabarete Nightlife

Cabarete by night is as intense as it is by day. The multitude of bars and small clubs lining the beach fill up with barefoot or sandal-clad travelers and locals enjoying happy hours, music, and dancing.

Cabarete, Puerto Plata

Constanza Nightlife

Playing tropical music, Kapioca Bar and Moé Café Bar are two of the popular nightspots in Constanza. But don’t expect much in the way of entertainment or nightlife. An adventure tourism destination, nights can be slow in Constanza. Visitors prefer to replenish their energies for the next day’s outing. The town’s central park is a favorite meeting place during the day and the night.
