Puerto Rico Nightlife: Bars, Nightclubs and Shows

From classic salsa to modern reggaeton, Puerto Rico pulses with an intoxicating beat. The capital city of San Juan is the nightlife capital of the Caribbean, where sophisticated nightclubs and Las Vegas-style casinos rule the night.

One of the hottest nightclubs is Brava, located inside the huge El San Juan Hotel. Brava is a see-and-be-seen venue, where you dress your hippest and rub shoulders with Caribbean tastemakers and pop stars. If you're looking for a more intimate spot within Brava, head for the second-floor lounge where the vibe is mellow.

San Juan's Bed Lounge has an upper level inviting guests to get cozy on its signature beds, while Oceano has an ultra cool three-floor lounge with an upper deck that flows out to the beach. The Nuyorican Caf' in Old San Juan offers old school salsa, with an informal atmosphere that welcomes locals.

Outside San Juan, most of the nightlife is centered in the larger, beachside resorts, where island nightlife comes calling when the sun goes down. For two lovers, often the only nightlife desired is a walk on a moonlit beach fringed with palms, a desire easy to please in Puerto Rico.
