About
The F.A.C., Cuban Art Factory, located on the 26 and 11 in Vedado, is the best night cultural proposal in La Havana. There is always something new to do, theater, jazz, contemporary dance, concerts, DJ's, exhibitions or intranet chatting. The best of all, all of this can take place in one night, while taking a glass of wine and eating delicious 'tapas'. Visit this place, a new Oxygen in Havana!

What a great venue that has recently re-opened. It is out of town (cost us 700 pesos for a taxi from old Havana) but well worth a trip. Mix of tourists and locals there. You pay 250 pesos entry and then get given a bar tab (on a bit of paper) to keep track of your food and drinks, which you pay off at the end of the night. We got chatting to people who recommended we leave earlier than closing as otherwise it's a nightmare long queue to leave. We were also recommended to get there early as queues to get in can be long, but it was fine at around 9pm although the venue definitely filled up (never uncomfortably full) but the venue is also huge.
Great mix of art, alternative music (you will get sick of reggaeton if you're in Cuba more than a couple of weeks like we were) and a really great crowd and atmosphere. It's fun just trying to explore every room/ bar to see what's happening there. Would also recommend the food which was very tasty, reasonably priced and we're veggie. A highlight of Cuba.

Fabrica de Arte was recommended to me by my Divemaster, Javier, from Dive Adventure Havana. It turned out to be a great recommendation. It is inside of an old warehouse, just a labyrinth of rooms and hallways decorated with Cuban art, with bars, food stalls, a dance club, and a performance space. The place just keeps going and going, and there are a couple gift shops if you want to pick up a souvenir of your time in Cuba. I highly recommend going there. I got there around 9pm and people were starting to stream in, by 11:30 when I left it was getting quite crowded. I recommend taking a nice-ish outfit if you plan to go here, people were dressed well (think first date type attire) though there were some in t-shirts and shorts so they won't turn anyone away for their dress.

Fábrica is a must when in Havana. I’d been told about how cool it was, and how it was distinctive and interesting in addition to just being good fun - but I was still pleasantly surprised. It feels at odds with the city around (in a good way), and much more like somewhere like Berlin. In Cuban terms, it’s relatively expensive - but it’s nothing on a night out in Western Europe/North America, and it’s certainly worth it. It’s the sheer variety that made this place, for me. If you want to drink just a mojito or two and walk around taking in the art, or watch a bit of cinema, or just explore the building - that’s perfectly possible. If you want to go to a club, that’s possible too. Fábrica really has everything, and as an institution in Havana should not be missed.

We visited the FAC on a Thursday night and were caught off guard. We thought it was just a contemporary Cuban art gallery.. which it is.. but I think it’s also the trendiest nightclub in town. You’ll get a ticket upon entering (do not lose it) which the bartenders will stamp when you get a drink, and you’ll pay at the end. I’m not an art buff, but the art was interesting, a lot of nudity and so not somewhere you might want to take your young kids. There are bars spread throughout, including a movie theatre, and a fantastic rooftop restaurant.

I would recommend scheduling a taxi to pick you up before going, leaving FAC was the only time we didn’t feel 100% safe in Cuba.

Very cool place. We went on a Thursday so presumably a little quieter, but so cool to grab a drink, explore the art and music, and tons of different rooms. We did get some food from here which is well priced and has some good vegetarian options, but was a little bland.

FAC is a popular nighttime spot open Thursday through Sunday, so there is usually a line. There is a 2 CUC entry fee. You are given a card that you use at the bar to get drinks and pay for them at the end. If you lose your card you have to pay 30 CUCs. Tip: don’t get the large drink. It is really big and is cumbersome to hold with the condensation on the glass.

There are many sections in the building with different art, music, etc. At around 11:30pm there is usually a DJ and that is when the dancing begins.

I definitely recommend checking out the FAC for a fun night and sticking around for the dance party.

Sometimes you find the places you expect the least to be the highlights of you trip and FAC (Fabrica de Arte Cubano) was definitely the one in Cuba! Everyone knows the usual Havana recommendation suspects such as the Capitolio, the Malecon, the Floridita and so on, but looking was I surprised that no one I know bragged about this place. We went there on recommendation of our local host and absolutely loved it. It was a mix of a club, bar, gallery and food court spread out in several buildings and floors making it a maze of cultural and culinary surprises. Absolutely loved it and would recommend everyone to go for drinks, dancing, dinner, a movie or whatever you feel like!

Incredible set of prefab buildings -each linking together- with diff venues of art installations, theatre, music, dancing and a bar to accompany each space. A total must see.
On entry (small fee)- you are handed a drink card. Each drink then gets stamped and handed over to cashier on exit. Unique and vibrant

Very cool establishment. We enjoyed the value for the entry fee (I believe it was 2CUC). You get to see all the art, experience live music, listen to a DJ, have drinks and food. Something for everyone. I like that they give you a drink card (which you don't have to use if you don't want to drink) and at the end you pay for what you ordered at once. It allows the drink lineups to be essentially non existent! It can be quite busy but it was a great time. I really enjoyed it here!

I do think it's a cool idea to have this large and varied performance space. We may have been there too early (around 10 pm) but there wasn't any live music going on when we were there. There was an odd silent movie playing, and multiple art exhibits on the two floors. There are lots of nooks and corners and different types of spaces within the old olive oil factory. And several outdoor terraces where you can get a drink, and if you are very lucky, a place to sit. In general I felt like there were lots of people wandering around all looking a bit lost and not really sure of what they should be doing or looking at. But I was also on the very much older side of things. Most of the crowd was in their 20-30's. It was fun to go and see this much talked about space. But difficult to engage much with it.
