The place is fun. It gets busy very late( around 1 am) . The reason I give 3 stars is because I got there early and the bartenders overcharged me for a drink because I showed him... read more

The place is fun. It gets busy very late( around 1 am) . The reason I give 3 stars is because I got there early and the bartenders overcharged me for a drink because I showed him my ID to open a tab and he saw I wasn't local . He charged 9 dollars for a titos vodka and cranberry... More

A few of ours friends and some locals we spoke to all recommended Circo. My husband and I decided to have one night out and check it out. Forewarning, it looks sketchy and small BUT looks are deceiving. We entered at about 11:30PM on a Saturday into a tiny bar area playing 1980s rock videos on TVs. We thought "this... More

Firs let me start by saying the bar staff are amazing here. The problem is when the dance floor opens up it so loud that is shakes the whole building to the point of deafening. We have been to clubs everywhere and this was a huge disappointment. Sure we love a good dance floor but this was painful to listen... More

Place is hot, not what it used to be. Ambience is good. Owners are cool. Will s recommend, needs to improve on prices to expensive.

Usually I like to check out local lgbt bars when visiting a new place. This place is not in Condado which is where I had stayed in San Juan but in an extremely sketchy neighbourhood. I literally bolted from the taxi into the bar when I arrived having cruised along a street full of prositutes, junkies and "colourful" characters who... More

Went here with my sister during our visit to Puerto Rico (as she is married & did not want to fend off possible advances). Everyone was extremely friendly and polite & we felt very safe there. The door guy was an off-duty police officer & frisked everyone before allowing them to enter, then ensured they had a taxi if they... More

One of the best drag shows I have ever seen. Coming from a place where the gay scene is big I had one of the best times at this place with my partner and a few other locals. At first one of the bartenders seemed more occupied with his phone than the customers but his second in hand (bartender with... More

Drinks were a little watery due to the quickly melting ice. Music was great in the main bar area. Dance floor music was more electronic pop with remixes and big bass drops. Dead at midnight on a Saturday. Party started around 1am so don't expect too much if you show up before the dance floor opens. Great for all crowds.... More

Good place to go with friends. Ambiance is very noisy so don't expect to be in a corner doing nothing. After 12am the dancing begins on the first floor.
