Escazú has a handful of popular bars and clubs, many frequented by the Central Valley’s well-heeled urban youth. The most popular is the Jazz Café Escazú ★★ (tel. 2288-4740; Próspero Fernández Hwy), a top spot for live music. If a high-level act is visiting from the United States, Europe, or South America, they will certainly play here.

For an excellent cocktail and a nice view, there’s the 8vo Bar (tel. 7219-4767) on the top floor of the Sheraton Hotel near the Escazú Multiplaza. On weekends it stays open until 2am.
