Club La Vela: "lavela - a dissenting view" Panama City Beach Nightlife Tip by drdisque

Panama City Beach Nightlife: 20 reviews and 18 photos

I am a former nightclub employee, therefore I am very critical of nightclubs so keep that in mind in this review.

There is only one thing that I like about this club, it is physically VERY impressive, it is VERY large. However, it was also very cheaply built and it is definitely showing its age. No number of people that this club can ever attract can ever make it seem busy. The crowd is very male and has a very poor attitude of simply trying to get laid, which 99+% of the crowd fails at doing. The DJ's are slightly better than other DJ's in PC and their lighting equipment is also above average, but whats it worth when 80% of their dance floors are flat out devoid of people? Also, this club has insanely high cover charges ($20+) and above average drink prices.

I would only suggest going here if you absolutely NEED to see the biggest club in the country, and even then, you'll probably still feel jipped.
