Great place, variety of beers , great music and good food makes a killer combination. Hamburger sliders with guayaba sauce and fries are really good you can try it in the inner garden. Prices are affordable and service is helpful.

I went to Taberna Boricua on a friday night, and it was surprisingly not crowded like the other nightlife spots in San Juan. The back of the place is spacious, comfortable and relaxing. Wide selection of craft beers to try out!

The bar has a great outdoor space with a wide variety of beers. It is in a very good location close to the financial district of San Juan. The only negative aspect about the place is the parking.

You have an a/c'd indoor bar and a beer garden on the back. I always prefer the back outdoors bar. Chill atmosphere, great to talk with friends. Great beer variety, always has something new to try.

The place is fun, I'm not gonna lie but it's so small it's hard to walk if it gets packed. The beers are also a bit too pricey, more expensive than Taberna Lupulo or any spot in Old San Juan. With that being said, I...More
