  • 1. Imagine

    Imagine you were dancing the night away in a natural cave, with earth-rocking acoustics. You can bounce back and forth between the various "cave" rooms with their stalactites and stalagmites, with equally hot dance floors, featuring house/club jams, merengue/salsa/world beats, current Top 40, and more. Theme nights change, like Crazy Thursday might switch to Brazil's Carnaval. Come late and stay early: things start getting steamy well after midnight, when many club crawlers descend via shuttle (round-trip) from the local resorts. The bus is $10 per person round trip. Private options are available. Taxis wait outside for those who can't hang. Tickets are sold online and at the door. The regular open bar for $40 includes international beverages, which differs from other local clubs that only offer national liquors. For just $10 more, premium tickets include an open bar with premium liquors, and the VIP tickets cover entrance for up to six people for $450.

  • 2. CocoBongo Club

    This popular Mexican club has opened a branch in Punta Cana. Latin Club music is interspersed with shows (such as celebrity impersonators or samba demos) lasting some 20 minutes, long enough for the dancers to cool off and drink. The atmosphere is loud, hot, and crowded. Paying extra for VIP service may be a good idea if you don't want to compete with the throngs on the main floor, and this includes transportation back to major resorts in the area.

  • 3. High Wave Café

    Closed Permanently

    An atmospheric lounge with big-screen TVs, High Wave Café is a pleasant spot to drop by for cocktails before or after dinner and is easily accessible from the hotels in Bávaro. Early birds can grab a swinging love seat on the front porch. After 8, musica dominates, loud of course. If you have the need to get off the compound and are in walking distance, this is a fine destination, but it's not worthy of a high taxi fare.

  • 4. La Mona

    Closed Permanently

    At this new high-end beach bar, the mellow lineup of entertainment will satisfy the twenty- or thirtysomethings without causing the baby boomers to bolt. Ideally positioned on glorious Juanillo Beach, adjacent to the Fortress section of the Sanctuary Cap Cana, it is chic and offers fine dining by night. Mixologists create brilliant cocktails with top-shelf liquor. The entertainment changes nightly.

  • 5. Pacha

    Under Renovation

    A favorite among locals and still one of the best resort-based dance spots, Pacha plays more merengue and bachata than most of the other clubs, but still is geared to young, contemporary music. The later it gets, typically the louder it gets. The place is not that large, but it's attractive, and drink prices are cheaper than other clubs in the area. Cover charges apply when live bands perform; otherwise it's free to enter (always free for Riu Hotel guests), and nonresort guests are welcome. If you're staying at the Riu Macao complex, it's an easy, safe enough walk.
