Weekends can get rowdy at this snug performance space, tucked down an alley in Old San Juan. Salsa is the language spoken here, although other types of island music—from merengue to bomba and even rock—often make an appearance. The crowd is always hip but is otherwise diverse—young and old, straight and gay, locals and tourists. They all mix and mingle while waiting in line to pay the cover, which seldom goes over $5. The inside isn't much to look at, but the dancers that pack the black-and-white tiled floor in front of the stage certainly are. Things tend to get started around 10 or 11 and don't stop until 2 or 3 in the morning.

Open Mondays through Saturdays. Hours vary depending on the performers.
