Plaza Padú, if you are looking for a venue that offers authentic local charm, the island’s newest public plaza, Plaza Padu, is your ideal venue. The plaza––named after Padu Lampe, one of the authors of the island’s national song (“Aruba Dushi Tera”) –is an al fresco venue that can host up to 500 people. Ideally positioned among a cluster of restored colonial buildings, it is anchored by a water fountain with colorful LED lighting that emits a lovely glow at night.
Tucked behind Aruba’s Parliament, lies a brand-new public plaza set among restored colonial buildings. At its center is a beautiful water fountain with giant, semi-submerged piano keys that are illuminated with colorful lights at night. The fountain is topped by an iron statue of two men at a piano, dedicated to cultural icon Padú Lampe, author of Aruba’s national anthem. Inaugurated in 2017, the wide-open plaza is decked with paving stones and offers the perfect space to host an outdoor evening.
