ENTERTAINMENT & NIGHTLIFE | Comprehensive Guide To San Juan, Puerto Rico

Club Clusters

 

Certain areas of San Juan are noted for their outdoor and street activity after the sun sets.  These areas have a high concentration of bars (most are open-air) and are excellent for people-watching.  Some of the areas prohibit drinking on the street, but you can always watch the street action from the comfort of a bar stool.  These areas generally don't get busy until after 11.  Often, the party continues until two or three in the morning.  Also, these areas will frequently host block parties or street fairs.  On those nights expect a lot of exciting activity. Cross reference the Calendar of Events for special occasions.

Nightlife in San Juan

 

Puerto Rico doesn’t wake up until 11 pm. Nightclubs aren’t busy til well after 1 am. The City’s offerings for entertainment and clubbing are internationally famous. To assist you in choosing the most r appropriate form of entertainment, a few highlights are listed below. Use this article in conjunction with the map below for nightclubs  as well as the “Venues” map to identify Music, Dance and Concert Halls.

Classicists will enjoy the traditional folk and classical offerings of San Juan’s many concert halls and block parties. They will be noted in La Bochinchosa’s Events Section.

Nightclubbers have a very wide range of venues. The ultra-toney clubs of Isla Verde attract Hollywood elite and jetsetters, while the thumping clubs of Condado draw the well-heeled locals from around the island. La Placita’s bargain-priced drinks attract the average Puerto Rican, and Old San Juan’s diverse club offerings cover practically every taste. Old San Juan has cabaret bars, beer halls, flamenco dancing, and everything in between.

Anytime you see a notice for a block party, jazz fest, or street fair, you can rest assured that the  place will be packed with party-goers. Some events tend to draw wealthier, more subdued patrons (such as art fairs), while other events are specifically targeted to die-hard partiers (like Noche de San Juan and the San Sebastian Street Festival). The street fairs of Condado (like Saborea and the Food Festivals) start with staid, upstanding folks attempting to actually taste the offered fares, and eventually end in raucous street parties by 11 pm.

Isla Verde is ideal for the extremely conservative upper income household. Condado is a sure bet for the middle-class nightclubber. La Placita is a gem if you are adventurous and really want a taste of Puerto Rican culture. Old San Juan is simply the best of all three; you can walk around all night and only experience a small portion of its offerings.

Always consult with La Bochinchosa’s safety map, neighborhood guide,  transportation guide, and rules about alcohol when planning your night out.
