A classy bar

Had a couple of drinks here and listened to the Soles del Escambray band (really good stuff). The pbotos and statue of Ernest Hemingway create a warm elegant vibe.

An unforgettable experience (in a good way!)
Oct 2018 • Couples
They say the best night are always unplanned - Bar Floridita is a good bar anyway but circumstances conspired to make it the scene of our most memorable moment from a month long trip round Cuba.

We popped in during the afternoon to do the touristy thing of getting a photo standing with the Statue of Ernest Hemingway which is at the bar, and to try the Daquiris (which come in several different flavours and are excellent).

There wasn't much going on but the friendly barman chatted and told us it was worth coming back for the band that evening who were very good and playing from seven until ten.

After our evening meal we decided to head back (like I said, the Daquiris were excellent...) and got there for about nine - there were a couple of seats left but it was fairly busy. Typically, the band played one more song and then finished and started packing up, and most people left.

The barman recognised us from earlier and having promised good music until ten obviously felt a bit obliged, so went to have a word with the band. We expected a song or two but instead the band came and sat at our table and basically gave us our own personal concert for almost an hour - needless to say they got bought drinks and tipped very well.

All in all a fantastic night in a very friendly venue - we obviously got lucky but I would still recommend going along for the music as the band was the best we heard when in Cuba.

And of course the Daquiris.......

Good cocktails.

It might not be the original but the cocktails - at least the Mojito and Daquiri were very well made and for 3CUC a pop. Was quiet but in Trinidad that can be a relief.

Nothing good but the music

The worst bar I visited in Cuba. Thrives on its name. Cheap knock off from the one in Havana, even with the same statue of Hemingway. And the knock-off is the only thing cheap here. Drinks are expensive, no menu so they can make up prices. They charged my Cuban friend so much for a double rum he was in shock for 2 days. Staff was also unfriendly and couldn't care less. Only plus side was the local band, that was playing very well.

Daiquiri heaven
Jan 2018 • Friends
Like others have said, this bar is a small imitation of the original in Havana, but having spent quite a few nights there while we were in Cuba, we'd all become addicted to daiquiris. So we were glad to find a smaller version here. It's slightly cheaper than the Havana one and doesn't have as many flavours, but it's still definitely worth it.

'Sister-bar' to the...ahem: apparently legendary spot in la Habana, this 'Floridita' is a dank, over-priced scam.
We stopped in for a drink as there was a lot of written & spoken hype around it - plus it started to rain when we were nearby - and while the setting was okay and the two bartenders were welcoming enough, drinks were nothing notable (aside from the inflated price) and it felt like sitting in a local bar in Quebec circa 1986.
In my opinion, this place is not worth a visit as there are numerous other fine spots to enjoy a mojito in Trinidad.

Puts you into a true Cuban mindset. The drinks also help set the mood. You must visit if your in Trinidad

Casual drinks

Daiquiris (3 CUC) are half the price of La Floridita in Havana, however also not as nice. We had 6 between us but they were all slightly frozen, slightly melted.

This is quite a small bar with only 4/5 tables. They had a good, fun, engaging band playing all evening. The atmosphere was much more chilled compared to the very lively Havana counterpart.

This bar is still touristy in the early evening but as it got later, tourists left and locals arrived.

More relaxing than in Havana
Feb 2017 • Friends
While not the original, the Floridita in Trinidad wasn't packed to the brim with tourists which allowed us to relax and enjoy a Daiquiri after a few hours at Playa Ancon. We really just wanted to check this off the list and take a picture of Ernie at the bar. The original in Havana is almost always insane and full of tourists so we were happy to enjoy this location in our favorite Cuban city!
