Your night out in Santo Domingo will begin in a local tapas bar, where you will try a typical Dominican-style appetiser, known as montadito de platano stuffed with carne mechada, alongside a frost-covered beer — brewed on the island, naturally.
After lining our stomachs with some delicious food, we’ll make our way to one of the coolest bars in the city, a shoe factory and atmospheric garden bar located inside a colonial ruin, covered with giant roots and beautiful, twinkly lights.
From here we’ll take a stroll through the narrow, romantic streets of the old colonial city towards a pub that buzzes with rock ‘n’ roll music. Most nights there’s a live band playing some of your favourite hits from the '80s and '90s.
After rocking out, we’ll go more low key with our next stop: a bar that fuses folk and alternative music, demonstrating the best of the bohemian and funky music styles of the Dominican scene.
Next we will stop at an art gallery and library bar, for a spot of high-brow drinking.
Then we’ll take you to a bar regularly frequented by surfers and alternative musicians. Here we’ll enjoy a glass of sublime Dominican rum to continue the party mood!
To end our tour, we have something a bit different for you, as we make our way to a theatre bar with a beautiful Spanish patio. We’ll enjoy a drink and a spot of amateur dramatics, as local actors put on short shows throughout the evening!
Our tour ends here, but if you’re only just getting started, your guide can recommend (and escort you to) a fantastic Latin music bar, where you can show off your killer dance moves and party 'til late into the night!
