Get dressed up

It's a cosy atmosphere and gets quite loud later on, a lot of people dress up properly as well to give it a more upmarket vibe and tends to be more 30's age crowd.

I drove from Hillsdale to Habana to find the bar was closed even though their website said they would be open. It was quite the disappointment. The restaurant above, Lena, was pretty good.

Good food and drinks in a great location downtown. A little difficult for parking, but hey it's Ann Arbor! Goes with the territory. A great venue with pleasant atmosphere and good food.

Food & Drink were excellent & authentic. Pricey for lunch. Nice ambience on a main street corner, quite modern, with a fireplace.

They serve an awesome burger - Try it! We also had some good appetizers (flat bread pizza and something else - all were good). The old fashions are good too (a lil strong, but very good!)

Cafe Habana has the advantage of giving you bar level food with a cuban twist. Our table of 4 all had different menu items and we all rated the food just average. Likewise, noone was blown away by the mojitos.

Can't go wrong here. Food is consistent and bar in the basement is great. Salsa lessons on Thursdays if you are up to it!

Went back to AA in November and had dinner + drinks at Cafe Habana. I used to love drinking their sangria in the low-lighted, cool bar downstairs.
