Good value bars in SJ


We're coming over to PR tomorrow (v excited, only 15 hours until the plane takes off !!). One of the nights we're in SJ we'll be looking to have a lads night so I'm looking for a fun bar with cheap beer - we're staying in Isla verde but happy to travel in to old SJ if that's our best bet.

Any suggestions ?

Many thanks,

Beer is pretty cheap everywhere in PR (except hotels). Medalla (the local beer) is usually the cheapest. I've seen it for $1 at some local bars.

If you like dive bars EL Batey in OSJ is the spot. A few films have been shot there so you might eve recognize it and it has the best juke box in San Juan. You can bring a pen or sharpie and write on the walls if you want, It;s mostly a locals place but you usually find and meet people from all over the world there since it has it’s own charm.

It’s right across the street the the Convento hotel.
