So much fun for all ages. Great drinks, great people, excellent live music! A little out of the way, but what a great night. I suggest getting there around 10.15. Band comes on at 10.45pm. We went on Thursday & Sat. We had lots of fun both nights, although Saturday was a bit too packed! I preferred Thursday!

Yes it is a tourist favourite but most of the tourists are Colombian. Drinks are not extortionately priced but you will have to drop a couple if you want a seat as the band never hits the stage much before midnight. There isn't much room to dance which for Europeans can only be an advantage but nobody cares how good... More

The place is magic, is always full of people of all around the world, the band starts at 11:30 pm. The Mojito de Maracuyá (Passion fruit) is delicious.

Now I'm a big fan of clubs and great music, but this place is getting a 2. Well the music is great, that's for sure. However there's no chance of dancing as the place is so crowded, you can barely move. Why? I really don't know. It's $20,000 just to get in the door. If you are lucky enough to... More

The decor of the bar is great and the atmosphere is definitely lively, but you can't enjoy it once the band starts. The bar allows people to enter until every square foot is filled and all the good vibes you should be getting disappear as you get kicked, pushed, and suffocated. In all fairness, we did go on a very... More

We went on a Thurs and while the band was great (and they charged a cover) they did not respect capacity and you could not move inside. We left after one drink.

Walked in.. Walked out 10 minutes later. That pretty much sums up my experience. Decided to go here for a night out with a few friends. Expected it to be busy but this was just ridiculous. Once we got through the door, couldn't move at all. (Why doormen keep letting people in I'll never know). Finally got to the bar... More

Cafe Havana is located just a short 5 minute walk outside the city walls. Stop in for an authentic Cuban mojito - best you'll find in town.

We came here to dance. We arrived early so we sat at a table and ordered the required one drink each (in addition to a 10 mil cover on a Wednesday), but ended up having a few more to get up the courage. The drinks were really great, and the atmosphere was really nice as well. The band started around... More

Fun place for a drink. Be careful around this area that your "Happy Hour" drink IS IN FACT a Happy Hour drink, we had a problem with the bar opposite
