    Great place to visit
    I loved this place. The artwork is fabulous and we bought a piece. The owner (?) working behind the counter was so nice and offered us to use the bathrooms and sit in the AC as long as we wanted. Highly recommend.

    Well worth the trip!
    Nico and Lady Lee have created a beautiful place to visit. We ended up staying for the Tuesday night Open Mic Night, and it was lovely to watch. Made us feel very much like a part of their community.

    Quaint unassuming gallery
    This is a great gallery right next to Plaza de Armas. It's got a great layout and the artwork was fun. My favorite painting by far was the interpretation of VSJ, which is attached to this review as one of my photos. You'll only need about 10-20 minutes here, but if you are at the Plaza de Armas, it's worth the visit.

    Perfect End to our Stay in Old San Juan
    This place is such a treasure, we just popped in looking for something to do on our last day in Old San Juan and we were delighted to find some amazing artwork on display. It was perfect thing to do on our last day since the artwork represented parts of Old San Juan and Puerto Rico. We were able to revisit some of the sights we had seen through the eyes of the artist and it was wonderful. Obviously we left with some artwork to take home to remember our time in Puerto Rico.

I bought 3 pieces in this shop, and the owner, aptly named Lady, was patience personified as she customized my selections. Both she and her shop are charming and a must for all who visit Old San Juan.

This is just the most wonderful place! The art gallery was so impressive and filled with creative interpretations of Old San Juan landmarks. There’s an extensive gift shop area with beautiful artwork and poetry. It was great to be able to purchase wonderful souvenirs here while supporting a local small business! Definitely stop by if you’re nearby!

My son and I visited this unique shop and art gallery during our stay in OSJ. They hold poetry readings/open mic night on Tuesdays and have a warm setting with musical instruments. The owner, Lady, was so friendly and welcomed my son to play their guitar. The art work is amazingly beautiful and the poems were so cool and inspirational. My only regret is we weren't in town on a Tuesday for the open mic night.

This little shop/cafe/exhibit/open mic spot is delightful. The couple who own it are a very talented unit and their love of each other and art shows everywhere. It’s a quick and lovely visit.
