“Great cocktails, nice atmosphere, great food”
Review of The Strangers Club

The Strangers Club
Ranked #93 of 1,250 Restaurants in Panama City
Price range: US$ 9 - US$ 25
Description: Six bartenders from NYC made a trip to Panama and alongside their local partners, began working on a concept for a cocktail bar that would bring their expertise in hospitality to the local market. The name is an homage to the original Strangers Club, which was in Colon at the beginning of the 20th century where we combine New York hospitality with a great sense of fun. The menu offers an extensive selection of Pan-American style cuisine as well as high-quality cocktails that utilize the best of what Panama has to offer, expertly made a young generation of bartenders who have spent years working under the guidance of astute mentors. The Strangers Club is a destination where friends and strangers alike can come together and create new memories that, someday, will be passed down to a new generation.

We happened to randomly walk into this place on a rainy day, and absolutely loved it! The cocktails were delicious, service was fast and the food was great! The place has a nice, rustic modern look - very pleasant ambiance. We had a great time and will definitely return if we take another trip to Panama!

If you are into serious cocktails you need to go here. What an amazing spot. Loved the interior. Made me think I was going back in time in old Panama. The mixologist are top of their class and did wonders with the 18 yr Don Pancho Rum - so good. If hungry get the Corn fritters and grilled octopus- amazing.

Such a fun night - Thank you Carlos!

Walked by this place last week while on a trip to Panama. Apparently the owners are from a very successful and popular cocktail bar in New York. The service and food was spot on and unlike anything I've ever experienced in the region. I have friends visiting Casco next month and will be sure to recommend this place

Went late after a meeting (around 11:30pm) and to my surprise they had the kitchen open (until 2:00am). Great ribeye also the octopus and the salmon ragu. Lobster roll was great also!
Kitchen is fantastic but the real gem are the cocktail, Negro Felipe, Angie and Road to Zion are top class. If you have a nostalgia for the classics, this is the place as well. Great ambiance and great vibes. Highly recommended.

Was in Panama for a layover and was delighted that Steve's The Stranger's Club was finally opened!! I had high expectations but it exceeded them! The place was cozy and comfortable, the cocktails were absolutely stunning, the food was stellar!! 10 out of 10. I was there at 7pm and stayed till the end. If I live in Panama, it will definitely be my go to place all the time. Much love to Steve and his fantastic team! <3
