Drinking with Hemingway

A good decor with bar tenders dressed in their traditional outfits. Quite a relax ambient for entertaining yourself and friends in one of the oldest Havana club. Decent people with decent music. Reasonable price too. There is a section for fine dinning. People come and go after 9pm.

Well, we were there last November and went back in June 2015. No, it had not changed one bit, it was just as crowded and noisy BUT, we wanted to experience it again. It's not a Hemmingway cult thing either, it's the atmosphere in La Floridita which brought us back. Not sure why so many people think it's called La... More

I loved the drinks and there is so much history there but, it can get a bit smoky because it is allowed to smoke everywhere in Cuba

We really enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar at Floridita - lively, noisy and a bit smoky - exactly how you imagine Cuba to be. Yes the Daiquiri's are expensive at $6 each but you are paying for the whole experience not just the drink. We loved how the bar staff worked and the music was fantastic

once a lauded seafood restaurant, before that the cradle of the daiquiri. Now a tourist trap. Go in, fight the crowds. Get your picture taken with the Hemingway statue, and even have a daiquiri (go for the papa double)

Most expensive drink in Havana. 8.cuc for a Strawberry Daquirri but they usually have good music and Ernest Hemingway hung out here. You can drink most places in Havana for 3.cuc for a similar drink and 1 cuc for a beer.

The place is jammed full of people when we entered to get some water bottle but it has a lot of story. It's a place you must go at least once.

Historical place with great bar and good music. We did eat there upon good recommendations, and did order lobster (but it is langustine). That was expensive and really bad (full of sand and no taste at all) I recommend the bar and the cocktails, but not the food. Go for a casa particular instead

I'd heard about this bar that Hemingway used to frequent, but was worried it was probably a tourist trap. Touristy or not, it was great fun!! Place was lively full of interesting characters and excellent entertainment! It was truly memorable and would recommend it to anyone visiting Havana for the first time.
