At night, the Colonial City comes alive with its solid concentration of casual bars along its multiple narrow, romantic streets, as well as dance spots. Along the length of Calle Hostos and Calle Isabela La Católica are a string of popular watering holes, offering happy hours as well as live music and dancing. Lounges and tapas bars line parts of Arzobispo Meriño and Arzobispo Nouel streets. Nearby on Plaza de España, on the steps beside the illuminated Alcázar de Colón palace, a free folkloric dance show takes place every Friday and Saturday evening (8pm-10pm), courtesy of the talented National Folkloric Ballet of the Ministry of Tourism. On Sundays, catch the electric Grupo Bonyé performing live salsa, son, and merengue on the ruins of San Francisco, with a free outdoor concert from 6pm-10pm. Over on Calle Sánchez and Calle Mercedes, lounges and dance clubs get going after midnight.
