We arrived early so there was nothing going on yet, but there is plenty to do in Old San Juan so we wandered around for a couple drinks before heading back. If I remember... More

We really enjoyed listening to the local live music and watching some locals salsa dance. I have a feeling some of the "locals" are paid to dance but it was still fun to watch salsa dancing in a laid back atmosphere.

I'm Salsa dancing with an Italian in a crowded room with live music in Old San Juan. Behind me is the live band on stage and a large screen displaying video. Clearly, this is the place to be at night and to meet people. People are friendly and social. Strike up conversations with people nearby. There are people from everywhere.... More

I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking to have an authentic Puerto Rican night! We learned how to salsa dance and made some news friends. The vibes were good all around. (Went Jan. 2013).
