There is a new way to have fun and meet new people happening every Friday night in Casco Antiguo. John Hanning is the organizer behind the Panama Pub Crawl, a weekly event in which participants take part in what is commonly referred to as a “bar tour” or “bar-hopping,” the act of one or more people drinking in a number of pubs in a single night, normally walking between them.
According to John, “the pub crawl is a great way to meet people and fellow travelers from all over the world while experiencing some of the hottest venues that the city’s nightlife has to offer.”
The group meets in Casco Antiguo every Friday night at a location disclosed via Facebook from 9 to 10 p.m. During the sign-up, free beer and pizza is provided. The night continues with a visit to three separate bars, where revelers receive a free shot and special pub crawl discounts. After the third bar, everyone proceeds to a local dance club.
The cost to attend is $25 per person. To learn more about the Panama Pub Crawl, visit them on Facebook or through their website, PanamaPubCrawl.com. Do not forget to bring your IDs.
