Calle 29 # 205 entre B y C. Vedado. | La Habana, Cuba

  • Located in a sleepy residential neighbourhood of Vedado in a two storey colonial house, Starbien has an update and modern feel, which seems a little out of sync with the neighbourhood. Upstairs there is a cute bar and lovely small terrace, which is perfect for sunset cocktails. The service was excellent and the manager/owner are young, dynamic and enthusiastic. The place is cool, although I still don’t get whether it is an implant to the area or something organic.
