This building used to be called Casa Nuratti and it has three stories, so Gatto Blanco Rooftop Bar would be on the fourth floor. It is open from noon onward, but it is quite hot to go at that time. Late afternoon would be an appropriate time to arrive for those who want to appreciate a gorgeous sunset. Views from the top are mostly of the modern city of Panama, including its spectacular skyline and the bay where the Fish Market is located.
Early it is suitable for anybody, but as the night falls the crowd changes so children should definitely go to bed! Images make the place seem larger than it is. Gatto Blanco Rooftop Bar is quite small, with several tables and chairs which are made from pallets. Reservations are recommended to guarantee a table. Food service is provided from Coliseum Roma Restaurant that is located on the first floor. Servers take their time in bringing food upstairs, so it is best to be prepared and patient.
