Nuyorican Café

Nuyorican Café (312 Calle San Francisco, c/Callejón de la Capilla, Old San Juan) — There’s something interesting happening at this hipper-than-hip, no-frills, wood-paneled performance space nearly every night, be it an early evening play, poetry reading, or talent show or, later on, a band playing Latin jazz, Cuban son, Puerto Rican salsa, or rock. During breaks between performances the youthful, creative crowd chats in an alley outside the front door.
