VIVO Beach Club
VIVO Beach Club is a beachfront entertainment complex featuring music venues, convention center, restaurants and bars, and its own brewery. Day or night it's a unique place to go grab a beer, hit the beach, then catch a show once the sun goes down.
This independent music venue has nightly shows featuring local bands and DJs, also art exhibits and theatrical performances. The mix at La Respuesta is eclectic, from hip hop, soul, R&B, and dancehall to local indie rock and jazz, so check their social media for what's going on that night.

Handlebar is a motorcycle bar for hard rock fans. Classic rock cover bands play regularly as well as local indie bands. The drinks are strong, and the music is loud.
La Placita de Santurce
For some dirty dancing head to La Placita where you'll find a plethora of bars and restaurants surrounding what during the day is a farmer's market but after sundown becomes the heart of Santurce's nightlife. Some popular venues include Aguardiente, Garabatos, Bar El Rubí, or just follow the sound of live music playing on the plaza.
Every night there's something different going on at El Local: karaoke, movie screenings, DJ sets, live bands, late night after parties...
Fried food, cheap drinks, urban art, and plena music on Thursdays. Even the late Anthony Bourdain hung out at Watusi the last time he visited Puerto Rico.
This has been a favorite hangout for University of Puerto Rico students since 1979. El Boricua attracts a mixed crowd, though, thanks to the live music including salsa, jazz, DJs, and more.
