El 13 is a buzzing alternative gay bar in San Jose’s gay district.

Famous for its grungy and punky atmosphere, El 13 attracts the young new gay crowd of Costa Rica with their drinks and food.

Live entertainment includes karaoke and punky drag shows, particularly the seasonal La Fiesta Unicornio.

El 13 mixes art and stylish gay culture in this chilled daytime cafe and nighttime lounge, a definite must-see in San Jose.

  1. Bad doorman

    “Doorman said we needed passports to get in! It looked empty, and he was rude so we left as no one needs a passport to get into a bar in Costa Rica. There are better bars in San Jose.“
