Founded more than years ago, this location is a must-visit spot when it comes to Old San Juan nightlife. Tastefully peeling paint, twinkling string lights, live music, and a labyrinthine layout characterize this intimate drinking and dancing spot as one of the best for nightlife in San Juan. And the specialty cocktail menu has enough old-fashioned favorites and ature creations to keep you coming back for days. Pro tip: Keep working your way through this venue, as one dance floor turns into another, and new bar tops keep popping up where you least expect them.
But the bar is far from seedy as its windows open onto the beautiful cobblestone streets of the old city with views of the Gothic San Juan Cathedral and other architectural landmarks. Shoot pool, choose from jukebox classics, and sip cool rum drinks for the perfect, never-ending Caribbean night.

One of the best nightclubs in Puerto Rico, Club Kronos features bouncing laser lights and a swaying crowd that fills the club to the brim. The electronic scene comes to life here with epic effects, techno sounds, and striking visuals, and you can also expect to hear hip hop, reggaeton, and salsa.
What to expect: A slightly more informal setting, what Bar Bero lacks in elegance it makes up for in creativity. Barbershop by day, mixologist haven by night, this lighthearted local t can be best described as mustache themed, featuring various barber chairs from different time periods and craft cocktails with hair-related names.
The vibe has been described by visitors as welcoming and friendly, and the bartenders take pride in their craft. Pro tip: Try the homemade ginger beer! The favored hangout for surfers, the bar offers the perfect pick-me-up frozen libations and Caribbean grill classics served on a casual outdoor patio overlooking the sand.
Full moon parties, weekend dance-a-thons, and out-of-this-world views make Calypso your ideal post-beach getaway.

Beer and rum flow freely here, and the club sometimes gets so crowded that salsa dancers spill onto the street without breaking stride.
A live band and tasty empanadillas stuffed with crab and corn fuel partygoers into the early hours.
