San Juan’s newest gay club is as delightful as its name (the green giraffe), and centrally located near the Museum of Puerto Rico Art along De Diego Avenue, which is experiencing a rebirth with new clubs, cafes, and nightspots. There are two levels of fun (a main disco dance floor and a rooftop party space), with DJs every night, drag shows, and other special events. It officially opens at 8pm, but the entertainment doesn’t get underway in earnest until about 10pm, and the party really starts getting hot around midnight. Early birds will be rewarded with nightly happy hours until 10pm. It’s a quick cab ride to the Condado area hotels from here. No cover.
