El Batey reminds me of what an old Spanish colonial jail might look like. It’s dimly lit by wooden chandeliers and the bars over the windows are rusted all the way through. There are puddles of water and piss on the floor in the alcove in the back where the bathrooms are. The comparison ends there, though. There’s a pool table and every square inch of the stucco walls are covered in graffiti of names of people who have visited. Even though the bar tries too hard to seem seedy (the only thing shady going on here are teenagers snorting coke in the bathroom that they just bought down in La Perla), it’s still a fun place to hang out. I’ve spent many a fun night here shooting pool and listening to the Stones on the free jukebox.
