Bros & Beers

Bar, Pub Grub, $$$
Save to wishlist

Panama really likes beer. It is probably most popular among the libations on offer, and with good reason—it is almost always cheaper than water. Bros & Beers is a fun bar with games, a great ambiance, and also a cocktail list for those who aren’t as into beer as the rest of Panama.
