Great, gritty, fun place to hang for a drink. Great service, even though it was really busy, eclectic crowd, lots of fun for late night. Definitely stop in. You will love it!

This is my favorite spot in Old San Juan. Bartenders are so talented! They have craft cocktails and can pretty much put anything together- and it always tastes amazing. They also have yummy tapas and a great wine selection.
