The Dining Room at American Trade Hotel brings to it a culinary philosophy shaped in top kitchens from Northern California to New York City. For The Dining Room's sophisticated lunch and dinner menus, the chef’s focus is wholly ingredient-driven. The innovative take on classic meat and seafood dishes is distinguished by their commitment to fresh, local and seasonal components. It is paired with an impressive global wine list, a studious cocktail menu, dessert selections prepared under the direction of Pastry Chef Luis Bula and a communal atmosphere that's warm and welcoming to guests and locals alike.
The Lobby Café and Bar's cocktail menu harkens back to Panama City of the 1920s and '30s, a time when the country's thriving social culture was at its most vibrant. Taking cues from the menus of notable Panamanian sporting clubs of the era, drinks infuse classic offerings with the bright energy of today's Casco Viejo — with a focus on fresh fruits and artisanal ingredients. The Lobby Café and Bar also offers appetizers at any time of the day, featuring cuisine inspired by the extended offerings in the adjacent Dining Room.
It’s the fulfillment of a life-long dream — a 50-seat jazz club in the heart of historic Panama City, conceived and curated in special creative partnership with world-renowned jazz pianist and UNESCO Artist for Peace Danilo Pérez. American Trade Hotel and the Grammy-winning Panamanian composer have brought a world-class jazz venue to Panama in Danilo’s Jazz Club — a place to foster innovation, conversation and talent of aspiring and established musicians near Casco Viejo and around the world.
