A MUSEUM TO SING
Back in high school I had a group of 4 inseparable friends, who more than friends, they were like sisters to me. In spite of our big efforts of being always together, life happened: college, relationships, work, children, divorces… among other wonders.
To celebrate our 20th graduate anniversary we left our loved ones back at home, and flew to Puerto Rico to celebrate the best of our high school years, I couldn’t be more excited!
When you think about Puerto Rico, you think about sunny beaches and great food. But I bet you don’t think about museums, right? And what if I told you, there’s a museum where you can sing Karaoke?
After our first day enjoying the breathtaking private beach of the Courtyard Marriott, it was party time, and by party I mean karaoke time! Our group’s oldest tradition.
Thanks to the advice of some nice locals we met on our plane, we found out about “Pomarrosa” a kitschy vintage restaurant-museum that offers karaoke nights. That’s a word combination I thought I would never hear in one sentence. So, there we went!
This place is one of the most authentic places I’ve ever been to. It’s an old house located next to the Baldorioty Avenue, filled with antiques of all kinds. Actually, it’s kind of mesmerizing to stop and look at the hundreds of unique objects on its walls, even on its ceiling.
From the moment we got in we were welcomed by Raymond, who owns the place with Tere, his wife. He runs the Karaoke and she runs the bar and the kitchen where you can taste delicious Puerto Rican food.
We owned the mic all night long, singing our heart out with everything from 80’s old hits to current pop songs, even some reggaetón. A vibe beyond words. It was an unforgettable night, the perfect way to begin one of the most fun and re-invigorating trips of my life.
