Nightlife in San Juan

Photo credit: © J Ortiz Rosario

So much happens on the streets of San Juan each night that the biggest problem you'll have is deciding how to divide your time.  Cultural events with a focus on the arts, nightclubs, laid back bars, casinos, movies, and more are all at your fingertips on any given night of the week, but keep in mind that the parties tend to get started late, so plan to be out until the early hours of the morning if you don't want to miss a beat.

If you're one who doesn't necessarily want a late night out, but would rather spend your time learning all that you can about the local arts scene, pick up a copy of ¡Qué Pasa!  This is the island's official visitors guide and it is constantly updated with lists of live music, theatrical performances, art opening, and other opportunities.

As previously mentioned, the club scene gets going late in San Juan.  So late, in fact, that you may be able to attend an art opening, grab dinner at 9:30 p.m., and then head to a local bar.  During the week, bars and clubs usually stay open until 2:00 a.m. and on weekends hours extend until 4:00 a.m.  Most bars do not have a cover charge, while the clubs often do. 

Outside of the club scene, another options for your late night exploits is to hit one of the area's casinos.  Nearly all of the larger resorts in San Juan have a casino on property, so if you're over the age of 18 you can step into the glamorous doors, step up to a table game, and see where the chips fall. 

There are a variety of different bars and other nightlife venues and some gambling sites in San Juan. To learn more concerning gaming, check out this extended discussion.

If you want to go out for the evening, you might want to consider Club Brava. It is situated in Isla Verde, San Juan. The place to see and be seen, this venue is part nightclub, part lounge, with an electric atmosphere, great music, and sophistication galore.

Another good option is Marullo Bar & Tapas. Known as one of the hottest venues in town, this is a great spot to grab a few drinks and snack on tapas before the live music and the dancing under the stars begins. The party usually goes late, so many sure to wear comfortable dancing shoes. They can be reached at (787) 946-0233.

A third option is Di Zucchero Lounge. A hip and modern lounge complete with live music and fun people looking to have a good time. The lounge at Di Zucchero has made this popular lunch and dinner spot one of the most popular night spots for locals and visitors as well. They're found within Condado District, in northern San Juan.
