Best Irish Pubs in Panama

When travelling the world, you almost always expect to find an Irish pub in every far-flung reach. It is one of those givens. At least everywhere I have traveled, you can always come across the local Irish bar where expats meet to imbibe. Panama is no different, but the scene has changed a bit over the years. Around the city you will find only 3. There are few other London style pubs, but I would not throw those into the same category. If you're looking for a fish and chips or scotch egg with some pints and bar talk then let's find you an Irish pub.

Irish Pub in Panama

When you are new in Panama City and looking to tie one off with some local neighborhood drunks… I mean, patrons, then check out these spots.

Paddy Mick’s

The last remaining proper Irish pub located right next to the Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal. Paddy Mick’s is on the main road, Carretera Omar Torrijos, coming from the city in Ciudad del Saber. Whether the place is bustling with people or there are just a few sitting at the bar, good ole Mick will be there to chat you up or serve a pint. I’d say that Mick’s wins for best fish and chips of the Irish pub if you’re feeling hungry after a few pints. Nearly every Friday there is live music out front where there are tons of picnic benches and distant views of the transiting vessels through the canal.
