  • This is a beautiful location with the main action-taking place in a lovely outdoor garden facing the sea while inside an up-market restaurant takes the bottom floor of another exceptional Havana mansion. This is somewhere, which you should only go to on certain nights when you know there will be a good crowd there since otherwise you rattle outside on your own.
    The beat night is generally Friday night when the Club is the host to the ‘Friday Night House Party’ but if it is late and quiet, move on since this probably means that the party is somewhere else tonight.

    Havana Libre Hotel – Salon Turquino  LH 4

    Definitely a place for posh spice. This is certainly the best view in Havana to watch a cabaret show (there is often a popular band and disco following the show). The room is on the 26th floor of the …

    Located on the top floor of a new shopping center opposite the Melia Cohiba hotel the Jazz Café. Mellow, sophisticated and freezing due to extreme air conditioning, the Jazz Café is not only an excell …

    Madrigal

    Madrigal  LH 4

    Café Madrigal is the sort of place that Hemingway would have liked in his Paris phase–intellectual, intense, artistic. A gathering point, a meeting place rather than simply somewhere to get something …
