Speakeasy hidden as it should be but the red light gives it away. Small intimate bar with tasty drinks and delish food. Great for couples or small parties. Highly recommend for a night out

$30 and under
About the restaurant
Taking pride in their fresh ingredients, La Burguesía brings local fresh produce, hand-picked to guarantee the best experience, fresh bread is produced daily in-house, and has its own butcher shop, where they make the their delicious house-blend daily from scratch. The menu consists of special gourmet hamburgers, a build your own section and a variety of creative tapas styled appetizers, salads and much more!

Of course, no burger is complete without the fries. They explored far and wide, looking for that perfect pairing and landed on the Belgian potato. Using a thicker cut, known as the “Belgian Cut”, you can choose between different spices or house sauces either to dip or lather the fries in. To wash it all down? Order one of our legendary shakes, artisanal beers, house cocktails, wine or soft drinks and enjoy!

Small, intimate space to enjoy well prepared sushi served with joy and enthusiasm. Service was impeccable. Be prepared to engage with your fellow diners, not more than a dozen or so, as you will be spending an hour with them in close quarters.

About the restaurant
Hard Rock Cafe Ponce is about to set the Aloft Hotel on fire with our signature style and rock and roll cuisine. Located in the heart of the south area of Puerto Rico, our cafe in the “pearl of the South” has enough room for you and over 350 of your best friends in over 12,500 square feet of party space. Boasting more than 300 years of history, the city of Ponce is known as “Ciudad Señorial” or the Majestic or Noble City. As a huge part of Ponce, we’re also close to the action, only 0.2 miles from University of Puerto Rico, 0.5 from Plaza del Caribe Mall, and 5 miles from Mercedita Airport. This historic city just got a culinary upgrade! Just one bite of our world-famous Legendary® Burger and you’ll see what fans of our classic cuisine have been clamoring for since we first began slinging burgers. If salad or mac and cheese is more your speed, we have you covered as well. No matter what you order, wash everything down with a few local beers or a hand-crafted cocktail or two.

In 1958 Chico was the hotel’s speakeasy, a cozy secluded lounge hidden from the lobby. In fact, Chico Cabaret was originally designed and named after a famous speakeasy in Manhattan. It is our intention to recreate that era with an emphasis on curated live entertainment where seasoned performers are featured, be it burlesque, DJs, live musicians and singers or comedy.
