With access to the beach, resort hotels and an incredible dining scene, Condado has some of the best nightlife in San Juan. Switch from casino to bar to dinner to beach and back again all night long in this tropical paradise. To help you do so, we’ve collated a list of 10 of the best bars to swing by whilst in Condado.

Condado Beach

1. Oceano


Sitting right on the Condado Beach, Oceano brings some of the spirit of the Miami South Beach party to Puerto Rico. There are three different levels of lounge for guests to enjoy including the Luna rooftop bar (which has a beautiful view of the ocean), the Brisas Lounge (which mixes indoor and outdoor space with a clean white decor), and the outdoor La Playa Bar (with access to the beach).

2. El Barril

Bar, Caribbean

If you’re looking to dance the night away to great live music, then El Barril is the place for you. There are also mixing booths for DJs when live bands aren’t performing. The delicious tacos keep flowing until late. Try teaming the chorizo pico de gallo with something from the cocktail menu, maybe the ‘One Spicy Night’, made with the finest tequila? Dance, drink, eat – repeat!

3. The Lobby at La Concha Resort

Neon lights, specialty drinks and great music are key to a great night and can all be found at The Lobby. Lounge chairs, ottomans and communal tables can be found near the central bar for guests to relax in. The Lobby is the place to be, but if you need a break there’s also space outside to help you relax.

4. Eternal Lobby Lounge at the Conrad Condado Plaza

Eternal Lobby Lounge has the sexiness of a club in New York City and the cool vibes of South Beach club. Similar to Oceano, Eternal offers three separate lounge spaces for guests to enjoy (Moon Bar, Ice Bar and Fire Bar). Each has its own distinct personality for guests to dance, enjoy the view, or just relax with friends.

5. El Bar Bero

Bar, Cocktail Bar, Pub Grub

Drinks taste delicious, look beautiful and are very well made at El Bar Bero. Despite the informal setting (it’s moustache themed!) bartenders are attentive and great conversationists. The drinks are a mix of originals and classics that have a Puerto Rican flare, but even if you’re not a fan of beer give the ginger beer a try because it’s homemade and delicious.

6. Mist Rooftop Bar

Bar, Pub Grub, Vegetarian

You might mistake this place for a bar in Miami when you walk into the incredibly relaxed atmosphere. Try to make it in time for a beautiful sunset and take a dip in the pool or relax on the couches as the DJ spins the night away.

7. Oasis Bar Tapas & Lounge

Bar, Gay Bar, Caribbean

End the night on a high note and make some new friends by visiting Oasis. Oasis offers reasonably priced drinks including great Happy Hour deals like two Medallas for $5. With the DJ playing pop music all night it’s pretty hard to leave in a bad mood.
