Adoquin Jamming Nights, Old San Juan

An “adoquín” is a paving stone, such as the ones that cover the streets in Old San Juan, and these jamming nights are about experiencing the vibrant night scene of Old San Juan while enjoying the sounds of local artists. On Fridays, from 7:30 p.m. until midnight, local artists and music groups offer brief and free of charge concerts to the general public. The musical offering include jazz, wind quintets, songwriters, bohemia, rumba, plena, trios, bomba, and choirs, among others.
