If you need a cool laid back pub with that old saloon type vibe and relaxed atmosphere with nice tunes in the back ground, you're home...i particularly like this place with its old dive style hole that is open and bright somehow and they have alot of great beers from all over and a great tap selection and the food...

I came here with my 19 yo son who was visiting me from Australia. I chose Puerto Rico since the drinking age was 18. A lounge waitress at our resort recommended it as a happening place to visit. Located in Old San Juan (OSJ), it was only a 15 minute taxi ride from La Concha Resort. The streets were pretty... More

Lots of little bars in this area of Old San Juan and this one was packed. I understand why. Great selection of beer on tap. The Who, Rush and other great music pumped up loud.

Great selection of beers. Super friendly and knowledgeable bartenders that help you decide which beers to try. It is a very simple bar, no frills decoration and no a/c.

Hip beer par in OSJ. They have an absurd list of beers from all over including PR craft beers. Bartenders are friendly. Great laid back place to grab a drink after walking the city.

You have to stop in and get their Trifecta hamburger!! With beef, chorizo and bacon and braised in Abita Turbodog beer if I remember correctly it was downright amazing. The beer list is a literal 3 ring binder - go, hang out, have a beer or three and try some amazing food. Staff was friendly though we caught them at... More

The service is slow (bartender doing shots with locals) there is no AC, no frills, but still my favorite place in San Juan. One guy in the kitchen somehow made the falafel wrap and my guy's fish tacos way better than average bar food. Couples, groups, people who enjoy good beer are here. One interesting thing I saw was that... More

Went there the night before my wed, as the title says, got some beers to chill down and relax. Its a cool place, cool people, safe (depending on the time you visit ofc). Lots of beers to pick from, same with some snacks and lil' meals you can get there. Have tried the quesadillas, good enough to try em again.... More

We were really impressed with their beer selection. We are craft beer lovers! The atmosphere is cool, location is good. They were busy so it wasn't always the fastest service, but it was not bad at all. Definitely a stop for beer lovers!

Thank Maria A
