This is a fun place to come on a Friday night and experience a mix of Panamanian/gringo nightlife. Having said this, I'm a bit confused with whether it's trying to be a club or a bar. The music is so loud it's hard to talk...More

The drinks are cheap but taste expensive. The music is local but sounds international. The crowd is laid back but exiting. All in all, this place is a great way to see how Boquete kicks back and enjoy themselves!

I must admit I am shocked by this person's review, and considering he also received free drinks? I frequented Zanzibar a few times during my stay in Boquete, and each time was a fantastic experience, I did not notice an overpowering odor, and if there...More

I have been in Boquete for a few months now, and I am still not bored of this place. Great atmosphere, great music, friendly staff (not the fastest but that is part of the culture) and great parties on Wednesdays when they have belly-dance shows,...More

On the strength of the reviews posted here, and armed with free drink coupons handed out by a representative from the local English language school, we paid a visit to Zanzibar on our way back into the thick of Boquete from the Panamonte restaurant. The...More

Your choices for nightlife in Boquete are limited, but unless there is a local festival going on, this is the place to go. Perfect place to share your day's worth of experiences with other travelers or local expats. Also, keep your eye out for crazy...More
