'El Mirador' restaurant is located in the grand and royal Aurola Holiday Inn. Soothing piano music and the view of the Centre Valley make it an ideal venue for a romantic dinner. Local cuisine introduces the guests to the real Costa Rican flavors. International delicacies have something for everyone. The stylish and classy decor and the picturesque settings complete the frame.
This pleasant bar features live jazz and blues. However, there is no regular schedule, so if you want to be sure to see a performance you should telephone ahead. Even if you are not lucky enough to hear a band, this is a pleasant place to enjoy a few beers, with its vaguely bohemian atmosphere. This bar is a unique and interesting place to visit.
As the night spreads its shroud and the explosion of the sunset's wildest colors start giving way to the blinking of the stars, many go home to rest. However, many others start a new life cycle: "Living La Vida Loca" (Living the crazy life). El Cuartel is the perfect place to do so. Here, people of all ages, colors and backgrounds gather to eat, drink, listen to the music, and make new friends. It has three different areas, including an art gallery, so you can "Live La Vida Loca" the way you like it best.
What used to be a disco like any other, gave way to this establishment for audiences that are more selective. Jazz, Trova, Pop and even Rave are programmed to satisfy such musical tastes. Darts, backgammon and chess are part of the experience, and if you want tropical music, Salsa 54 is one level down. On Wednesdays live Jazz performs on stage for lovers of this genre. If you have some old LPs, or would like to buy a few, the Acetates Club, which meets here on Thursday night, might be just for you.
Gay or straight, so long as you are stylish, this is a great place to visit. There are various levels offering two dance floors, pool tables, a large video screen and, of course, a bar with a wide range of drinks. Enjoy the atmosphere and drink beer, wine or a cocktail between dances. There are nights with special themes; ask for more information.
This is a enormous venue, where Latin and international music is played. It features several dance floors and bars and a clientele including university students, foreigners and people of various ages. Because of the size of the establishment, you can choose what type of music you want to hear and head to the appropriate spot. Bars serve a suitably wide range of beers, liquors and cocktails.
The tango has made its way up from South America and you can hear it played here, as in many other parts of Central America and Mexico. The atmosphere is pleasant and adult-oriented; good for a romantic evening or a prelude to some more fun. A suggestion is to dance the tango here only if you really know how. Otherwise, you may feel quite uncomfortable amid the more experienced dancers.
This stylish bar and nightclub attracts a large gay and lesbian crowd, although anybody is welcome. The music is international with emphasis on modern techno sounds, which you can enjoy on any one of three dance floors. Additionally, there is a drag-queen spectacular on Saturday nights. Whatever your personal inclinations, this is one of the most happening places in town.
This place was established many years ago as a simple bar and is recognized today as a landmark. Far away seemed the day that gyroscopic lights, trendy music and even karaoke were going to consume the small peaceful hideaway it use to be, where our fathers and grandfathers went for a drink while chatting about politics, soccer and other things. Nowadays, Castro's has expanded its premises with a second level that contains a bar, while the lower level is a discotheque. It maintains its tradition of the olden days offering a complimentary snack with every beverage purchased.
Located in San Pedro, this nightclub is the pinnacle of chic, with blue lights, delicious drinks and techno beats. The crowd generally tends to be under-30s who want to dance.
Located within walking distance of the University, this bar is very popular for students who are looking for some alcohol and live music.
"Gooooal," the speakers and the clientele scream in a loud shout, while Ronaldo embraces his teammates in the giant TV screens! Drinks and beers, Tex-Mex food and sports paraphernalia are all part of the party. After the game, trendy music takes over and it is time to dance. Some, who prefer a quieter atmosphere, sit on one of the two balconies outside to contemplate the night, or maybe the incoming guests. This is no doubt a spot for the youngest crowds.
