Were told by our hostess at the appartment about the Jazz Cafe. It's a really nice one, with live jazz music. FOod is good and cheap. Friendly staff and plenty of fun. Good to visit when in Havana.

If you are lucky and can hear some of the marvelous Cuban Jazz.... This is one of the top spots. We were there the night of David Faya and his group. The audience included jazz dignitaries from Argentina, Germany and more.... It was a joy to hear and be a part of the unique music of Cuban Jazz.

Cool, classy upmarket venue for Cuba. Nice food and great live music. Service a little slow but no worse than anywhere else in Havana. Spent a very pleasant evening there.

A great jazz club outside the city centre. Music was great, cocktails were excellent, food was good. We paid 10 pesos to get in, which then could be used for drinks and food. The only problem with this place was the toilets. Absolute disgrace. Question is how often do they clean it, because you can't get it to this state... More

Seen a couple of really great shows here but the venue itself is pretty gross. Its located on the third floor of the Paseo Galeria "mall" and looks really old and outdated. Smoking is forbidden indoors but the rest of the mall smells like an ashtray. Entrance is 10 CUC per person on most night, 20 CUC for a famous... More

No complaints about the music whatsoever but I had never experienced such a freezing temperature in a place like this in my life. The air conditioning is simply unbearable and theferore we left shortly after the concert started as my mother and sister couldn't bear it. I saw people wearing anoraks and North Face gear inside which is simply astonishing... More
