Parque Duarte

Calle Duarte with Calle Padre Billini

To the chagrin of some, this park is the gathering place for young gay Dominicans. And also to quite a few not-so-young gay people. If it is a Thursday - Sunday night, and the weather is beautiful, then chances are people are sitting in the park. Many people go here before going out to the bars on the weekends.

Santiago


Monaco Bar Lounge

Avenida 27 of February #40  
Centro, Santiago
Dominican Republic
809.226.1589

Centrally-located in the center of the city. There are always specials and strippers. Checkout their Facebook page for all their offers and specials.


There are many other bar/clubs, but those with a gay clientele are listed above. During the week your options are very limitied if you want to socialize in a predominantly gay setting. Here are some other options. But remember, they are NOT exclusively gay. Also, you want to be aware of the "Dominican Dress-Code" when going out. Button-down collared shirt, along with jeans, loafers and slicked back hair is the predominant uniform. Tattoos, long hair (especially dreads), loud jewelry, and any other high-fashion looks are generally frowned upon, at some of the higher-end places. You want to keep it on the conservative side at these places. Below are some other options during the week.



Avenida Venezuela
Avenida Venezuela (near Avenida Las Americas)
Ensanche Ozama, Santo Domingo Este
