I liked this place. Went every night for a night cap for the 3 nights I stayed in Vedado. On Friday they had a jazz trio on the baby grand piano.

This is one of our favorite bars we encountered during our time in Havana. Located in the cool and lovely Vedado neighborhood, the drinks are affordable (3-5) and well made. The scene is quiet and artsy, with regulars hanging at the bar. Americans, Australians, and...More

Like so much of Havana Madrigal bar Cafe exceeded our expectations. Was it the aged rum and Cohiba cigars? Well, that was part of it. Add to that the ambiance, decor and elevation affording a territorial view from the veranda

Stayed at the Airbnb - Hostal 1940 and this bar was across the street. Great service and tasty drinks. There is a lot to look at inside we came here 4 nights and just hung out on the balcony.

We dropped by this bar late one evening just in time to catch the band. It's got a really cool bohemian feel and a great outdoor balcony - perfect for enjoying a cocktail or two.

We enjoyed a great night at the Madrigal. My friend was celebrating his 40th birthday, and already knew the place and made reservations. A group of nine of us had the balcony reserved, and it was gorgeous. Juan Carlos met us and was most gracious....More

Hello, My friend who went to Cuba with us rented a room downstairs below the Madrigal bar. I do not have any information but maybe you can call the bar and ask for a phone number for the host that runs the rentals... More
