I hang with the boys every now and then for a cold beer and to shoot some pool upstairs. IU would give it 5* but their prices have creeped up a tad every few months.

We came here on the recommendation of a fellow tourist who raved about the mojito. The bartender did take a GREAT amount of care with the mojito he made me. There was a lot of meddling, and it took a long time but was worth the wait. There are several coin-operated pool tables on the second level, which seemed like... More

Douglas' Pub has become a necessary stop on all of my trips to Puerto Rico. On my first visit in 2011, the hotel manager where I was staying recommended it, and I've been hooked since. The lower level is very cozy (meaning things are kind of tight)... bar stools at the bar near the front (not a lot of space... More

We had cocktails here on Sunday after brunch at Waffle Era. It was a good spot to hide out for a while and watch the crowds go by. It's literally a hole in the wall but a pretty decent one.

A Tad on the pricey side even for the lower area of touristy Old San Juan and about as much local flavour as a Wendy's or BK. Got the feeling the barmaid wished we were some-where else. Nice clientele, not sure why they were in this place
