Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

If you stop by this neighborhood bar at, say, 9 or 10 pm, you may find yourself alone with the bartender. It doesn't get going until 11 pm at the earliest, but 1 am is probably better if you want a true taste of San Juan nightlife. It closes, oh, when the last person leaves. There's music most nights, whether live performances or DJs. Although not a sports bar per se, this sister property of Bar Gitano is a good spot to catch an important game, whether Champions League soccer or American football. The new mixology menu has great cocktails and there's the signature passion-fruit–spiked white sangria. Tasty burgers are available if hunger strikes but you can also order from the tapas menu next door.
