15 y H, Vedado
  • Somavilla is catering to a young and hip crowd. This opened in August 2013 with a bang as the location for the first presentation of American Dj Derek Turcios in Havana. The bar itself is spacious but still intimate located in a Vedado duplex. It is also non smoky which is a real relief.
    Service is good, cocktails inexpensive.
