Walk around the Old San Juan. There are plenty of bars there. However, most of them are in fact, touristy beings that Old San Juan in general is after all, a touristic area.

There is a Señor Frogs across the cruise piers. Also, there is a mexican place called Tijuanas on the piers. There margaritas are very good. They have an outdoor area looking towards the bay.

Señor Frog is very tourist oriented.

If you want to go where locals go stay away from those bars in front of the Piers with english language micky mouse names, those are located in the southern part of the district and cater mostly to cruise ship tourists,

Go up, to Calle San Sebastian, Fortaleza, etc....there you will find non touristy bars.

Thanks for the tips. Yes. Not a fan of Senor Frogs, margaritaville or Carlos & Charlies.
