This was a great place to hang out for the night in Old San Juan. Band was great and the people were extremely friendly. It doesn't look like much from the outside but a definite place to stop in for a drink.

Live music, and real salsa dancing class. It was a great experience. People were welcoming. It was a workout, I enjoyed the music. It was a full band. Nice Vibe. Be aware of "Map man" he hangs around club and this area. Preying on drunk tourist. He will have a map, directing you of places where to go. He has... More

It's very funny! On Wednesday and Friday you can join salsa lessons starting at 09.00 pm. At 10.00 pm live salsa music. Entrance is 5 euro. It's full of people dancing very well but you can try also if you are a beginner because anyone will help you. It's worthy to visit in Old San Juan

Right of San Francisco street after Plaza de Colon. $5 dollar cover, drinks are reasonable and the mojito is pretty good. No worries if you ain't Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, folks are just dancing for a good time. There are limited tables and chairs, so get there early. If not, the crowd spills over in the alley to take... More

Live salsa music and lots of dancing! This is a fun place to visit. There is a $5 cover to get in. The live salsa band is entertaining and lots of people dance there. The only downside is that it is very small and feels cramped.

We visited here on a Saturday night around 10:30pm. Paid $5 each to get in. Small place inside with not a lot of tables but got lucky and asked to share a table with a few others that had room at their table. The live music was NICE! The dancers were even better! Hubby and I took a beginners salsa... More

My girlfriends and I came here on Sunday night and absolutely loved it! There was a live salsa band playing with a $5 cover. We danced all night and enjoyed their shot specials and drink specials.
