    Default What is there for night life in the Tres Ojos area of Santo Domingo?

    Just moved to this area, start of Charles De Gaulle, or Tres Ojos, wondering if there are any ex pats hangouts in the area? Or even regular dominican hot spots to have a few cerveizas? Any help is appreciated.

    Assaults, rapes, and other such activities seem to be the norm over there. Not the nicest place. Loaded with Chinese - owned hot bed places...

    Not a decent place there except probably some colmadón for beers and dominos...

    If you don't care about lowlife discos and bars you may stay there or go to San Vicente de Paul Ave. where there are lot of discos. If you want to have a decent nighlife, you may head to Eclipse in Ave. Venezuela or cross the other side of the bridge.

    Hillbilly are you sure? My wife's aunt and uncle have lived there for more than 30 years. I have been visiting that area for about 15 years at all times of day and night. I have yet to hear my wife's aunt or cousins complain about robbery, rape or murder. I have not read about rape or murder being committed in Los Tres Ojos. Except for a mention of 7 people living in a house in the area arrested for committing crimes in OTHER areas of the city, my google search for crime committed in that area came up empty.

    That area of the city is a typical Dominican working class neighborhood with some domyork. I have not seen in this area the loads of Chinese you mentioned. This area in not Los Cacicazgo but it sure isn't Villa Mella. There are plenty of RD$10-20+ million homes in the area in: Mirador del Este, Brisas del Este, Corales del Sur and villa Eloisa. Colmadón are not prevalent in this area. You'll have to go to Av España & Charles around the rotunda or around Carretera de Mendoza & Charles if you want any colmadón action.

    HB might be thinking of San Isidro, for the hotbeds. about 20 of them both sides of the street, Tres Ojo's is not that bad an area, but if you cross 27th of Feb. watchout.

    Default For what it's worth

    I am very familiar with the Los Mayemes area of the Capital which is adjacent to Tres Ojos. It's a family orientated community that appears very tranquil in the daytime and early evening. About 9:00 PM the residents lock down tighter than San Quentin and it turns into a "no man's land". Many colmados, a lot of loud music, noisy cars and occasional gunshots. The bars on Ave Espana are very dangerous, many car accidents with personal injury. There is no screening for guns and many are packing, mainly for "self Defense". As you might imagine as the evening wears on and the drinking increases and someone hits on someone elses mujer shootings are common. I watched last years winter league playoffs on the big screen at the sports bar on Ave Espana. When Licey prevailed it seemed like every other customer was firing shots into the air. A safer area for nighttime entertainment is the Disco area of Ave Venezuela on the North side of Feb 27th. For the extra five minutes I would go to the Colonial Zone.
