Funky local bar. Really attentive and friendly service. If you are in Old San Juan this place is a must for a cold adult beverage and appies. Home made salsa is excellent.

So this place obviously has a lot of beers on tap and in bottles. That in itself is great however it is only one reason why this place is an awesome, can't miss stop. They have the best Cuban sandwich. The Cuban sandwich is reason enough to come to La Taberna. I also loved the atmosphere. It is on a corner and has multiple open door ways. It was relaxing to sit here and see the cobble stone streets and Old San Juan.

I was here for lunch and it was not too crowded. I understand it can get busy at night. This is close enough to El Morro to stop by if you are at the fort. The lunch crowd was okay for families.

The only negative is the beer prices are a little high by mainland standards however they were too much higher than the $5-7 range. The place is great however and make sure you don't miss the Cuban sandwich.

Lúpulo is exactly that bar on the corner with a great band and waaaay-above-average food where you want to meet your friends for a beer connoisseur challenge. They have pretty much everything and if you’re hesitating they’ll generously pour you a taste to help you decide. This bar is so well managed you don’t even have to be a friend of the bartender to get great service. Make it a point to stop here every time you’re in Old San Juan to compensate for the long walk back to wherever you found parking.

Delicious craft beers and a beautiful open atmosphere. I was taken aback at first that they did not have the traditional Puerto Rican beers however the waitress was easily able to help me find something i liked. Reasonable prices, would recommend!

Not even a close second for beer coolness and great food in Old San Juan (or Puerto Rico for that matter).
