A must do in Cartagena! The band was amazing and the dancers were wonderful. Super high energy. It gets crowded but that's the fun of it. Great night to go out and Salsa! 11pm is a great time to go!

Avoid at all costs. One star is too kind for this place. Hands down the worst experience during a 10 day trip to Cartagena. The most rude, disrespectful service we encountered. Seating is on a first come, first served basis; my girlfriend and I were...More

Great Live music all night long. Drinks were a little more expensive here than other places I visited during my trip but the drinks were good. Not much room to actually dance however it was still enjoyable.

Great venue in Cartagena for Salsa-lovers with live band playing classical Cuban music, good drinks and friendly service. Food is also good if you enjoy Cuban as we do. Make sure to look for Cafe "Havana 1940."

We sat at an outdoor table so that we could enjoy the scenery and people watch. The service is great and the food is as well. I would definitely go back!

Fantastic place for great Cuban music, dance, and electrifying atmosphere. The music set starts at 11:00 PM so to get a table one should get there about 1 hr earlier. The place gets very crowded. While the music is excellent, the acoustic is not at...More

We too were looking for the ideal place to listen to some good Latin music and maybe some good dancing vibes. Cafe Havana looked like the places to experience the best Caribbean mood, but unfortunately this was very far from reality. The bar and setting...More

Taxi to La Cerveceria in "Centro Historico" which is the most famous eating establishment in Cartagena. Cafe Havana is next door. Check if live music is on when you decide to visit.

It's preferred to have a reservation or it is better to go at 7:30-8:00 pm before the site gets crowded and it's OK for two ladies going along. Have a rum from Colombia caribbean coast and enjoy the night!
