La Factoría Review
La Factoría, the former Hijos de Borinquen, is hands-down the best mixology bar in San Juan. There's no sign on the door, so look for the terra cotta building on the corner of San Sebastián and San José. Artisanal cocktails are crafted with the highest quality ingredients. Many bitters are homemade as is the ginger beer, which is used in their popular Get Lucky Mule. You can order one of the specialty cocktails listed on the chalkboard (the Spiced Old Fashioned is fantastic) or chat with one of the bartenders who will create the perfect drink based on your preferences. Whether its sweet, spicy, bitter, or something completely out of the box, these drinks will blow your mind. Behind the bar, there is a secret wooden door that leads to VINO Wine Bar, which has a great speakeasy feel. Tasty tapas are available and can be enjoyed in the adjacent room. The bars stays open until the sun comes up and there is a DJ most nights.
