    La Factoría began as a nice, quiet speakeasy. But several expansions - and an infusion of Puerto Rican passion and music - has seen it become an epic venue. Pick your favorite room and enjoy!

    A hipstery, speakeasy to hit with your crew. Warm up with a few cocktails in bar1, get cozy in wine bar2, groove to live salsa in bar3 to finally trip on to New York'sque house music in bar4. Cheers

    Come here to get away from the cruise ship zombies or when you can't listen to any more salsa. Great vibe, fancy drinks, delicious bites, and hip indie music. Mostly locals, from what I gathered.

    Hijos de Borinquen is a handsome and delicious cocktail; yet you can’t go wrong with any of the choices. Great vibe, beautiful interior. One of the greatest bars I have ever been. Love this place.

    Open the wooden door slightly behind the bar in the first bar, go into bar 2 (wine bar), and then again there is another slider door into bar 3 (music later evening and yet another bar). Fun!

    If you're in Puerto Rico you can't miss La Factoria. Ranked one of the best bars in the world, it contains multiple themed bars & truly has something for everyone. Save enough time to explore them all

    We had the octopus, a sandwich called la tripleta, beef sliders, Mediterranean pizza. All were very good I was frankly impressed by the quality of the food. I'm from Houston and a very spoiled foodie

    Great, creative cocktails and a good selection of tapas, it was lovely on a weeknight because although there were actually people there it was comfortable and not crushed in w/ weekend warriors.

    Order any of the signature cocktails. Meticulously crafted, they are all delicious and a feast for the eyes. Grab the table by the window if possible for people watching on the cobblestone streets.

    Great cocktail spot. Love the worn walls and cozy vibe. I hear there's a separate space behind the bar that plays salsa too.

    This place is great! Saturdays are a good day to go, they have a salsa group. They have great wines and service is pretty good also, not as cheap but worth it! It's a good time 👌

    Popular among young locals, La Factoría is a speakeasy bar with good music and drinks. Be sure to explore the different rooms throughout the night. You'll find music genres for all!

    Lavender mule from the front bar. Do it! Also, there's a cocktail with cherry gin and cucumber that is to die for! Hipstery-fun vibe, creative-dedicated bartenders.

    This place is awesome. Cocktails amazing. Feels like you're still in NYC especially given bartender used to work in NoLita! Try the spiced rum Old Fashioned.

    Cocktails were great (both the mojito and spiced old fashioned), but the surprising star was the orders of steamed pork buns we got. Spicy and wonderful.

    I can only comment on the Cucumber Smash (delicious) because I went twice in one week and had it both times. Cool bar environment and great drinks.

    Really great spot. It has 4 different consecutive speakeasy/secret entrance bars. You have to go here if you're ever in El Viejo San Juan at night

    If you want craft cocktails in a Williamsburg setting, this is your bar. Four rooms - each with its own menu.

    Food here is a nice alternative to the overpriced, touristy San Juan standard fare. Come with friends and order off the tapas menu.

    Go to the bar behind the principal bar, it's more relax. Have some wine and ask for the Bacon wrapped dates with almonds.

    Try the spiced old fashioned or the lavender mule—or tell the bartender what you feel like and they'll mix up something good.

    Lavender mule if you are adventurous with your cocktails. There's 2 more bars interconnected each with different drinks and music.

    Mojitos are the fucking best you can get here. If they run out of mojitos, you still can get the frozen mojitos, which are the next best!
