PANAMA CITY, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading hospitality development and management company, The Tantalo Group, has unveiled Teatro Amador Nightclub and Caliope Restaurant & Bar, two new and pioneering venues. Past the neoclassical doors of one of the oldest, still-functioning theaters in Casco Viejo, Panama City's UNESCO World Heritage District, guests escape into an atmosphere where international music and cuisine converge in an incomparable setting. The venue surpasses the traditional concepts of Panama City nightlife, providing a lavish entertainment outlet for VIP guests, superstar DJs, locals and travelers alike.
"Panama has rapidly transformed into a major center for commerce and tourism creating a huge opportunity for creative and well-executed hospitality concepts," said Matthew Blesso, Founder and CEO of NY-based Blesso Properties and Owner of Tantalo Group. "We are thrilled to own what we believe will be the premier nightclub in all of Central America as well as one of the most innovative restaurant concepts in Panama."
Teatro Amador captivates its patrons by magically blending the old and the new combining a historic theater built in 1912 with an L-ACOUSTICS Line Array providing the best sound system in all of Central America. "Entering the space you feel like you have stepped back into the 1920s in Panama or Havana," said Lorenzo Robles, General Manager. "While many nightclubs are sexy like ours, few have our historical character."
Under new management, Blesso plans to take this nightclub to a realm heretofore unseen in Panama. Teatro Amador will not only host the world's top DJs making it Panama's premier electronic music destination, but will also continue the theater's 100-year history as a cultural center showcasing multidisciplinary art and live music.
Right above the nightclub, Caliope Restaurant & Bar, offers one of the most inventive gastronomical experiences in Panama. The localvore restaurant offers a monthly rotating menu of international fusion cuisine. Head Chef Martino Pace, formerly of the Michelin-starred Le Calandre in Padua, Italy, prepares inventive dishes using traditional Panamanian ingredients in a novel way, truly embodying 'Cusina sin limitadas' (Cuisine without Limits). Caliope is the first high-end restaurant in Panama City, offering elegant cuisine in a fun, high-energy, casual setting, boasting 84 seats with access to a breezy internal terrace, open kitchen, two-story green wall and a sophisticated NYC-caliber cocktail menu.
