Right of San Francisco street after Plaza de Colon. $5 dollar cover, drinks are reasonable and the mojito is pretty good. No worries if you ain't Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, folks are just dancing for a good time. There are limited tables and chairs, so get there early. If not, the crowd spills over in the alley to take... More

Live salsa music and lots of dancing! This is a fun place to visit. There is a $5 cover to get in. The live salsa band is entertaining and lots of people dance there. The only downside is that it is very small and feels cramped.

We visited here on a Saturday night around 10:30pm. Paid $5 each to get in. Small place inside with not a lot of tables but got lucky and asked to share a table with a few others that had room at their table. The live music was NICE! The dancers were even better! Hubby and I took a beginners salsa... More

My girlfriends and I came here on Sunday night and absolutely loved it! There was a live salsa band playing with a $5 cover. We danced all night and enjoyed their shot specials and drink specials. I will be coming back to this place. Old San Juan was a beautiful, lovely place to walk around at night and feel the... More

We went on a Saturday night to this popular club filled with tourists and some locals. Music was great. Which explains the packed dance floor (and bars). Service was good.

I've been trying to get to this club since my first trip to Puerto Rico in 2009, and after 7 years and 3 trips to the island, I finally had success! On my first attempt, we did a ride-by and my cab driver told me that the club was "closed"... on a Saturday night. That made no sense, but what... More
