Two Spots after 2 – Santo Domingo afterhours

Nightlife-BartenderNo one wants to be told they have to go home because the bar is closing. Due to current restrictions in the Dominican Republic, most establishments must close at 12am Sun-Thurs and at 2am Fri-Sat. Although numerous bars/clubs have been given an extension to 1am Sun-Thurs and 3am Fri-Sat, some nights you just don’t want to go home.

Fortunately, establishments inside hotels are exempt from this law. Of the hotel discos found in Santo Domingo, two seem to have separated themselves from the pack. Both Coppa Bar at the Hotel Meliá and the Hotel Aurora Disco are two spots attracting the late night crowds after 2am.

Coppa Bar
Few clubs in Santo Domingo pack in a crowd like Coppa Bar. Although the party gets start- ed late (after 12am), it goes strong to the wee hours of the morning. Come dressed to impress, as Coppa generally attracts an affluent Dominican crowd who love to be seen. Get to the club early if you want to grab a table but no worries if you can’t. Coppa features a long bar that nearly stretches the length of the club so getting a drink with the large crowds is no hassle. Adding to the atmosphere at Coppa, multicolor wall panels flash through- out the night to a wide mix of salsa, merengue, reggaeton, house and techno music.

Hotel Meliá San- to Domingo. Ave. George Washington #356. 809.682.2102.
Open every night 9pm-6am

Hotel Aurora Disco
On Santo Domingo’s East side, Hotel Aurora has become the hottest late-night spot. When the bars close on the capital’s biggest nightlife strip, Avenida Venezuela, the party heads right to Hotel Aurora. Getting in can be a bit of a hassle due to the large tumult of people that bombard the club after 2am, but the wait is well worth it. Not as chic as Cop- pa Bar, Hotel Aurora has a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere where people come to dance. Period. Don’t expect thumping techno or house music at Aurora, this is the late night version of Avenida Venezuela, featuring a mix of the hottest Latin tracks in salsa, merengue, reggaeton and bachata.
Carretera Mella Km 8 1/2. Santo Domingo East. 809.483.3313.
Open every night 10pm-6am
