Puerto Rico's nighlife hearth
Jun 2021
Good vibes in this spot. I think the hearth of Puerto Rico's nightlife.

You can find good spots to drink and listen good music.

It's very crowded, so don't go there late or you won't find any seat or space. Don't go there with your car or you won't find any parking and you will stay stuck in traffic for hours.

Good customer service
Feb 2021 • Couples
Customer service was very nice. When we went there the they were packed but the server managed to get us table in between. I am not big fan of the food since most foods are fried. Also it was mofongo that I ordered but lil dry and chewy.

Trash overflowing and scattered everywhere
Jan 2021
It's a great idea; love the concept of bringing together local shops and restaurants, and a market. The amount of trash on the streets and overflowing in containers is offputting. It ruins the whole experience. This is true of other areas in San Juan and the island of Puerto Rico.

What a place. It is like you are in Rio de Janiero
Dec 2019
Who needs to go to Rio de Janiero when you can party as hard in La Placita! This is really an excellent hangout spot. Arrive late if you wan to see the action or partake. The place gets buzzing after midnight.

Crazy!
Feb 2020
Wow! This place was alive!!! A whole 2 square blocks shut down to traffic. Tons of restaurants and bars. Loud music from both speakers and live bands. People dancing in the streets. I even saw one guy in a wheel chair chilling on a patio drinking from a six pack he'd bought. No rules either. It was fun.

An amazing place
Nov 2019
Street market with a variety of stalls, music almost any time of day. The indoor market is surrounded by bars and restaurants. All you might need in one big square block.
