Overview

Habana Panama es un homenaje a aquella epoca dorada de la musica afroantillana. Salones de baile donde se presentan no una, sino dos orquestas cada semana. La epoca del glamour y la elegancia manifestados en musica y canciones que invitan a la alegria y al disfrute de la vida, presentando dos orquestas todos los jueves, viernes y sabados a las 9:00PM.Igualmente se pueden divertir tomando clases de salsa los Viernes y Sabados con los campeones nacionales e internacionales, aprendiendo con nuestros profesores cubanos el complejo de la rumba y la rueda de casino.Viajemos en el tiempo a aquella Panama y a aquel barrio de San Felipe en el que la vitrolas de los bares no cesaban de emitir sones, boleros y guarachas y vengan a disfrutar la noche con nosotros en Habana Panama, el bunker de la musica cubana.

I tried to convince my friends to visit Habana Panama as I heard good comments. I was thinking we will dance and had a good time. They left because after 50 minutes of only regaeton music and electronic the dj was not doing fine. There...More

The salsa band was good, but far from great. I've experienced better bands in California. Also, there weren't many experienced salsa dancers, and the ones that could dance, only knew Cuban style. The part that drove me nuts was the DJ. Between sets, the DJ...More

Do you like Bueno Vista Social Club style music? Watching stylish, expert salsa dancing? Seco with soda, lime and ice? A vibrant party mood? Beautiful dark traditional dance hall, really atmospheric, exciting, fun night out. Loved it! Great big red leather booths, book your space...More

This place was so much fun! The live band starts at midnight, and the place has such a great vibe. We paid $10 to enter the back room with the stage. Get your salsa on! There are girl dancers who are so fun to dance...More
