El Batey

Cool, crusty and unashamedly divey, El Batey is a cavernous drinking joint whose walls are covered in graffiti, and the low-key lighting and undeniably good vibes will have you groping in your pockets for spare change to light up the suitably retro jukebox.

Bars & Nightlife

When the sun goes down, San Juan’s vibrant nightlife awakens. Any excuse is good enough to go out, especially when it comes to dancing. If you are into merengue, salsa, hip-hop, or disco, you can expect great live music and plenty of dancing in a variety of settings.
