Never miss a play at these awesome Puerto Rico sports bars.

From night clubs to dive bars, or chinchorros, there’s a place for everyone to hang in Puerto Rico. If sports bars are your thing, there’s place for you, too.

While not as abundant on the island as in the U.S., there are several popular sports bars in the San Juan metro area that will entertain you, feed you and keep you in the loop.

Sports bars are establishments where customers drink, eat and hang out while watching sports events on TV screens placed throughout the bar. Ice cold drinks, good food, a casual atmosphere and the company of fellow sports fans make for a great night out.

Most Puerto Rico sports bars serve a combination of the usual American menu of appetizers–wings, nachos, burgers, mozzarella sticks–and popular traditional Puerto Rican food. Drinks usually are cheaper than in night clubs or restaurants.
