La Factoría

San Juan

  • The Best Bar in the Caribbean 2024, sponsored by Amaro Lucano

La Factoría poured fuel on Puerto Rico’s contemporary cocktail scene when it opened in San Juan in 2013 and, inside the charming-yet-gritty bar, it still feels very much a Boricua cultural icon and the country’s premier cocktail destination.

Filled with eclectic vibes and the particular style of Old San Juan’s charm and hospitality, visitors to the bar will embark a journey through six spaces, each with different menus and themes catering to guests looking for a slightly different experience. The main bar, El Facto, gives way to other spaces like the wine-focused Vino, the intimate El Desvío, or dance-friendly Shing A’Ling. Cuban-inspired cocktails take centre stage at La Cubanita, and El Final offers a smaller setting for eclectic tastes. The red thread that connects all of these spaces is the dishevelled-chic theme woven through the decor and the outstanding cocktails made to showcase Puerto Rican sensibilities conjured up by celebrated bartender (and co-founder) Roberto Berdecia. Whether you’re seeking a night of festive dancing over Lavender Mules (a modern classic made with a lavender and dry spice syrup with citrus, ginger tea and vodka) with friends or a quiet contemplative cocktail for date night, this San Juan bar is a must.

La Factoría is again named The Best Bar in the Caribbean 2024, sponsored by Amaro Lucano.
