Bar Friends

Calle Povorin #10
Colonial Zone, Santo Domingo
809.689.7572

The oldest gay bar in Santo Domingo is a hustler bar where bugarrones (Dominican term for hustlers) and foreign gay tourists congregate. Used to be a nice neighborhood dive when it was owned by an older British gentleman. Now, many of the guys that hang out there are drug-addicted, and perform magic. Meaning, they can make things disappear. Take care when visiting, and especially who take home. To see a map of where this business is located in the colonial zone, click here, and look for the name of the business.

 There are many other bar/clubs, those with a gay clientele are listed above. During the week your options are limited 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.
