Calle Principal
Playa Cabarete , Dominican Republic
809-883-2684

Beachside palm trees wrapped in red cloth and tiny white lights announce the presence of Lax Beach Bar along the Cabarete stretch. During the day, a youngish crowd gathers here to hang out in the weathered lounge chairs or swing in the hammocks while sipping potent mojitos, and at night the fire-breathing bartenders turn things up a notch. Visiting DJs enliven the weekend scene with beat-driven techno tunes that normally inspire a few model-caliber employees (bikini-clad, of course) to dance atop the wooden bar while the rowdy, casually-attired raises their collective glasses in salute.
