It breaks my heart to write a negative review specially as a Colombian but I hope the managers of this place get some control over their bouncers who made me and my 2 foreign girlfriends feel disrespected and humiliated, this is what happened to us...More

It is a great place to go listen to some live salsa and drink a mojito but not the best option to dance, it's a bit too small. We still had fun tho, but didn't stay for too long

I waited anxiously to go to Café Havana. We went earlier to see if it was open. The staff was cleaning and advised they would open at 7:00pm. We arrived at 7:15 pm to be blocked by 3 guys saying the charge was $25,000 pesos...More

This place charges American price. At the door, you will have to pay 25,000cop per person to get in. A mojito is about 30,000cop. Don’t get me wrong! The live salsa music gets 5 star, but the rest is not very impressive for the price....More

This pub is sort of a classic in Cartagena to visit if you want to experience a Cuban-style pub. There is a Cuban band that plays Salsas trying to create an atmosphere reminiscent of a typical Cuban pub... The place is typically very crowded, where...More

This place is definitely work a visit if nothing else but to to experience the local music and the dancing of the locals. The place fills up rapidly at the weekend between 10 and 11pm, not worth going in before then and you will struggle...More

It's preferred to have a reservation or it is better to go at 7:30-8:00 pm before the site gets crowded and it's OK for two ladies going along. Have a rum from Colombia caribbean coast and enjoy the night!
