“Havana nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Great atmosphere, great food and great prices. Always a busy / fun / party atmosphere. With a lovely hidden den of a restaurant at the back.

“Expensive reasonably priced whisky served badly!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Tried Havana Bar with my good friend for decent whiskies. We were given a reasonable price until the bill came. The manageres had an attitude and the initial lady then changed her story, but still gave an other price than the bill. I don't mind paying for good whiskey, but employees should know their facts and management should remember that good and fair customer service keep existing-and bring new patrons.

“Cozy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

On the pavement there is an outdoor area that doesn't really get going 'till late. Go in to the bar and you have a couple of TV's for sport though I wouldn't call it a sports bar! At the back there is a cozy little restaurant area, good for small groups and couples but forget big groups there isn't the room.
The food is good, pork chops with mash and there is a dish with prawns and mango salad that I like.
Service is generally fairly good and very friendly.
One small point, in the bar area don't expect to sit at a table and call it yours,when it's busy you'll be shufted up and given neighbours whether you like it or not! Can be a great night out on a good day.
Check out the paintings on the back wall of the bar...

“Fun pub to grab a drink at in an ex pat environment - outstanding dj on Thursdays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

expat central on "electric street", where expats go to play. The bar area inside is pleasant with a number of flat screens that show football games, though most of the crowd spills past the small porch onto the street to enjoy the outdoors (I think because of the ban on smoking indoors). DJ on Thursdays is this ethiopian guy who spins an outstanding mix (also works Onami on Tuesdays).
