Use taxis when going out at night. Most bars in the centre are fiercely local, so you’re best off heading to Colonia Palmira and Blvd Morazán. Head also to Paseo Los Próceres (closed Sun), a peculiar strip of bars at the large Los Próceres site, housed in units that were intended for clothing boutiques. Café Paradiso is also worth stopping by for an early evening drink.
