There's plenty of nightlife in Santo Domingo, although much of it is rough and ragged. Prostitutes hang around the main plaza after dark, and tourists should be very careful about walking around then. I recommend that you take a taxi to and from any bar or nightclub. Habana Blues (tel. 09/6069-810) is the best and liveliest club in town, with a large dance floor and private VIP section. It is located on Calle Pallatanga and Avenida Quito.
