San Juan Dive Bar: El Batey
A low-key, though generally busy, dive bar with low lighting just bright enough to reveal the stripped down walls covered in graffiti from the flow of bar patrons over the years. Locals return regularly for games of pool and to vie for control of the jukebox. Tourists are not likely to award the bar any points for decorum, but the crowd, a lively and artsy mix, fill the bar with enough welcoming energy for anyone to have a good time. El Batey offers a full bar though the majority of bar-goers opt for a local Medalla beer and shot or highball of local rum.
