A quick little stop in Old Town, It is mostly locals, but it's a typical atmosphere for the area. The crowd was fun, and the drinks good. They serve food too

Place was dead, overpriced and unoriginal in every way. Only stopped in to grab some Cuban food, but guess what? They don't have their own food, it's run up the street from Casa blanca. Lame. Don't waste your time or money.

I love this place for a night cap after dining at one of the restaurants in Plaza Bolivar. If you have NEVER been to Cuba, Habana is exactly what you would imagine a Cuban bar would be like - Run down, a bit seedy and...More

Like the other reviewer I was shocked when my mojito, Blue Moon beer and Ginger Ale cost over $18. Having traveled Asia where I paid $2 for a mojito I did expect it to cost more, however, not comparable to US tourist town prices. The...More

Es un bar estilo cubano ubicado en el Casco Antiguo, hermano menor de Cafe Habana en Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Guarda la magia de Cuba en cada rincon. Su musica, platos tipicos y arte provenientes de la isla, hipnotiza con encanto a todo aquel que la conoce.Todo tipo de cocteles se ha preparado cuidadosamente al igual que las letras de las canciones, que transmiten sensaciones indescriptibles como ver un atardecer en la isla, su olor a mar y a tierra. Todos los elementos de la Vieja Habana estan presentes: los cuadros pintados por artistas locales traen todo el son cubano y la musica vibrando en cada pincelada.Los platos tipicos cubanos enamoran el paladar y te trasladan sin saberlo a la Habana dejandote con las ganas de volver. Encontraras los mejores Puros Cubanos, la seleccion de rones mas completa de Panama, el son y el arte de aquellos que desde la isla aprecian el horizonte desde lejos.
