Omg!! Love this place. Dance, dance and dance Latin music. I danced two hours without stopping. Good music, good drinks and beautiful people in the heart of Old San Juan.

There was live music and the drinks were good at an average price. The door check guy was nice. I would definitely go back. The bathroom is REALLY small, though, so use it before you go lol

We went to this club on a Wednesday evening when the house band was playing. Got there at 10pm and to our happy surprise, just in time for a salsa lesson. At 11 pm, the band started playing. It was amazing to watch experienced salsa dancers do their thing and the band was great as well. Only thing you could... More

This place is great. You will get to feel what the salsa means to the Puerto Ricans. It is in their blood.

The Nuyorican Cafe is an authentic club. Great band but very small dance floor at times it was too crowded to dance. Very little seating if you wanted to enjoy a drink. $5 cover to get in.

I went to the Nuyorican Café on a Wednesday night when there was a live band. Let me tell you the place was packed! If you enjoy salsa (dancing, listening, or watching) then you have to go! The drink specials are pretty good too. It's a great stop on your night out in Viejo San Juan!

We went on a Sunday night and luckily was early enough to get a table. Live salsa music started after 11PM. There was a cover charge of $5 a person to go in. It was a small place with an equally small dance floor. So nice to watch couples salsa dance especially the good ones!

So we decided to come here because we read on TripAdvisor that this is the place to go in Puerto Rico where you'll find good music, good people and good drinks. They were not wrong!! I was amazed by the wonderful salsa band that played there! I loved everything about it. We got there around 10pm because they told us... More
