As there is no AC, is extremely hot inside. Service and entertainment are great!. We enjoyed the live band. People looked nice.

As soon as you get in you feel you're in Cuba. Great live band, good atmosphere, good mojito. Good value for money.

This place is a definite tourist trap; however, I know this will sound crazy, but it is a must visit just for the nostalgia feel & environment that these (foreign) owners have re-created. Very cool throw back feeling like your actually in Cuba, kicking back some Cuba Libres & listening to some awesome salsa. 15,000 pesos just to enter, then... More

Worst mojito ever, and expensive. Unfriendly staff. Entrance cover for a bar.. = rip off. Just tourist clients. Music ok..

I have traveled the world over the last 30 years both in the military and for vacations and have never been treated so poorly. My wife and I (she is Colombian) wanted to take our 20 year old daughter to hear live salsa music before we left Cartagena. We ordered one round of drinks and then the "waiter" proceeded to... More

If you love salsa music, then you will have a great time there! The mojitos are pretty good, there is live music, and people are very friendly

Whenever I asked anyone in Cartagena where the best salsa club was, every single person said Cafe Havana. Now don't get it confused with Havana Club...that will be a completely different experience that involves Cuban cigars and mojitos, but no salsa dancing. Cafe Havana is the #1 salsa club in Cartagena for a reason and you'll realize it the minute... More

We went here last night based on Trip Advisor reviews. The cover charge alone was annoying, but not the worst part. It took ages to get served and when we asked for a cocktail that was being advertised on a sign above his head, the bar man had no idea how to make it and spent ages trying to figure... More

Make sure if you walk out for a smoke break or breather that you get a tag from the doormen that lets you back in. Despite the doormen seeing me walk in at 2130 and walking out for a breather they refused to let me back in without paying them something. Even when I pleaded just to come in to... More
