Description: La Bodeguita del Medio was founded in Cuba in the 1940s as a corner store owned by Angel Martinez. The store became a meeting place for local artists who enjoyed getting together for an afternoon 'Mojito'. The place has preserved the ambiance of the romantic Carribean lifestyle that flourished with Havana. Today the Bodeguita del Medio is famous world wide for Salsa music, fine cigars, its original Mojitos and having guests write their thoughts and comments on the walls of the restaurant.

“Exelent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

This is a unique place, decorated like a warehouse in a traditional Mexican food market. They usually have shows of singing Friday and Saturdays.

“Good Cuban vibes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011 via mobile

The Bodeguita de Medio is a great place for a night out with friends, with a full dinner menu, live music and friendly waiters always ready to bring another "mojito" to your table.

It is not cheap and the food offerings are uneven: the Cuban chicken and the stuffed plantain was delicious, but the ceviche was too spicy and not very fresh.

The live Cuban music is inviting and you are welcome to dance in the restaurant if space is available.
