La Factoría

San Juan

  • The Best Bar in the Caribbean 2023, sponsored by Scrappy's Bitters

La Factoría might have poured fuel on Puerto Rico’s contemporary cocktail scene when it opened in San Juan in 2013, but inside the charming-yet-gritty bar feels as though it’s been around for centuries. The sprawling building hosts a surprising labyrinth of six drinking dens in total, 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 tie that binds each one together is a dishevelled-chic theme that weaves throughout the decor and 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 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 2023, sponsored by Scrappy's Bitters.
