  • The Red Monkey: Old San Juan on the cheap

    by dtaylor35 Written Oct 8, 2011

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Red-Monkey/230135757476?sk=wall

    Much of the bars and eating establishments in the Old San Juan area can be hard on the wallet. The Red Monkey is worth the small walk away from the touristy places closer to the cruise ships for a cozy intimate atmosphere, cheap drinks, friendly service and surprisingly good food. This night spot is open evenings most days of the week, though their busiest day is Sat where some crowds come to stay and chat and some hit this spot for cheap drinks before moving down to the more populated, though higher priced, bars downtown. This spot is also a good place to end the night after spending 6-9pm at Sr. Frogs for their Wed ladies night (free drinks).. or just any night downtown in general.
    PS if you enjoy your time there, friend them on facebook.

    Pool Palace: Best of both worlds

    by BergsFinest Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pool Palace was a unique place right in Old San Juan. It's located in the same complex as Senor Frog's, but has a different atmosphere. I went there with my friends that live in Puerto Rico. It was more a local hot spot. There were rows and rows of pool tables located in between a few bars. At around 11, the large dancefloor opened up and everyone busted a move. It was a great time, with multiple bars. If you don't feel like dancing, hustle somebody in a game of pool.

    Dress Code: Dress to impress...everyone else will

    The dance floor gets wild

    Lupi's: Best of both worlds

    by Natalllya Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Both of both worlds.

    The outside of Lupi's is a charming and small patio that surrounds the bar. Excellent drinks and food while over looking the busy street life on Isla Verde Avenue. Inside, a club unfolds approximately 10 p.m. with live Spanish Rock Bands and Top 40 DJ. You get dinner, drinks, dancing and music all in one and for an affordable price.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Señor Frog de la Isla: Completely packed on a Tuesday night!!

    by CLillard Updated May 17, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We started out eating dinner here at 8 pm on a Tuesday. The live band and MC entertainment started at 9:30 pm. This place got so packed! Don't worry if you are claustrophobic because they open extra rooms and if you need more space you can move to the edges, away from the band/dancefloor. There is a mixture of tourists and locals here. The only downfall is that the drinks are expensive. My drink was good, called "Ticket to Fly" and it was $6. If you eat at the restaurant there's no cover charge. We also went on a Friday night and the cover charge was $7. By the way, on a Saturday night the entrance line gets very long. If you play your cards right, you can convince the bouncers to let you bypass the line and get in free. What I did was walk up to the bouncer and say "is this the line to get in" or maybe I said "how long does the line take". I'm also a girl, so of course I blinked my eyelashes and smiled. He asked to see my hotel room card (to prove I was from out of town) and then he let me and my friends in for free without waiting in line. I was able to do this twice, so it does work. It also helps if you are dressed nice and look different than the others.

    Dress Code: I don't think there's a dress code because I saw one guy wearing shorts.

    Condado Casinos: Gambling at the hotels in Condado

    by kazander Updated Mar 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Condado area near San Juan has lots of Hotels with Casinos...We popped into the Casino at the Marriot for, oh about 15 minutes. Lou was in the mood to gamble, but when we got there, we could tell it wasn't a winning kind of a night. The Casino is not all that big, but they do have $2 roulette tables :) The Hotel is pretty though, we wandered around, checked out the pool and the beach, and a live band was playing at the bar (though they were not good enough to keep us sticking around)

    Dress Code: No open sandals or flip flops for the guys, or tank tops. Girls can get away with a lot more...or less depending on how you look at it.

    Senor Frog's: Not your typical Senor Frog's

    by BergsFinest Written Feb 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to Senor Frog's expecting it to be exactly like the one in Mexico. All tourists just having the local drinks in the yard glass. This was not true. It was all a Puerto Rican crowd in their 20's with a live band, dressed to impress. We went in shorts, which was a mistake. They allowed us in, just because of the fact that we seemed like tourists. It was a good time, all in all.

    Dress Code: Dress nice, no shorts, sandals or sneakers

    Maria's: Get "La Nota"

    by BergsFinest Updated Feb 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a small bar at the end of Calle del Cristo, off Calle San Sebastian. They have great frozen drinks with Don Q rum. The local thing to do is get "La Nota". This is an funny expression for someone being very drunk, especially after the Festival de San Sebastian. "La Nota", the drink, is very potent, so I don't recommend ordering for yourself....maybe an unsuspecting friend.

    Dress Code: Anything goes, I do recommend actually wearing clothes though

    Maria's, get

    Candela Bar: Loungin Out

    by BergsFinest Written Feb 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Candela Bar is a great place for lounging to some trendy music, like house and jazz. A famous drink from Candela Bar is called "Papa Jac". It has a somewhat secret recipe and a special cup to drink it in, for $7 you get a potent, but tasty drink in a specially designed cup that is yours for good. It has the story behind the drink. It's popular during the Festival de San Sebastian. You can also get Papa Jac at Don Pablo's on Calle del Cristo during the weekend evenings.

    Dress Code: Look nice, you know the deal. Dress to impress

    Babylon: Hot spot

    by BergsFinest Written Feb 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to the Wyndham at 10 on a Thursday night, and the line will be long for Babylon. It plays hip-hop and reggaeton, and more for the 21 year old crowd.

    Dress Code: Dress real nice. No sneakers. Go with jeans, nice shoes, and a button down for guys. Girls can do what they want for the most part though.

    Shots: Good times

    by BergsFinest Written Feb 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shots is almost at the end of the strip on Ave. Isla Verde, right before the Ritz Carlton. It's a great bar with live music on the weekends. Alot of locals go there, especially on Salsa night, which I believe is Thursday. That is the night when the older crowds seem to go, also. The cover charge is also not that outrageous, with less expensive drinks, too.

    Dress Code: Puerto Ricans tend to dress a little more properly than going clubbing in NYC, in respect to men. Guys should not wear sneakers, but jeans are usually OK worn with a nice button-down shirt. C'mon you're on vacation, look nice, go out and have fun.

    San Sebastian Street: Bar hopping in Old San Juan

    by lilcoqui Written Dec 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Have fun hopping from pub to pub
    and dancing to Salsa and merengue.
    The fun often spills to the streets.

    Dress Code: Casual is okay
    but puertoricans tend to dress up
    a little. Wear comfortable shoes if you plan to walk the cobblestone roads.

    Shots Bar and Grill: Local partying

    by Natalllya Updated Aug 4, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shots Bar and Grill is a good mix. Cover is $5 but worth it.

    The centre of it all is a bar that goes all around the venue. On the left side of the bar is the sit down area, its filled with booths and tables so you can sit down and eat and drink or take a rest from dancing.

    To the right of the bar is the dancefloor, booths and tables line the outside of it.

    Drinks and food are at a reasonable price. The music is a mix of english and spanish top 40 intervened with live spanish rock bands.

    Its a good local hangout, not too touristy.
    I partied there for St. Patrick's day and had a blast.

    Dress Code: No running shoes.

    People like to show off a bit of club gear here but you won't be uncomftorable in jeans and decent shoes.
