The Righteous Room
A mainstay on Ponce since 1996, this dive bar right next to the Plaza Theatre has become an institution for cheap beers and good food. Dinky chandeliers hanging above the high top tables are more about funny aesthetics than practical lighting since the dimness helps to hide the very lived-in feeling of the bar. People are usually spilling outside of the tiny interior to the sidewalk, and with a space so small, serving food seems like it would be too chaotic. But thank heavens you don’t need a lot of arm space to eat most of The Righteous Room’s munchies like their hot dog, wings, or nachos.
