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

We are avid salsa dancers and were excited about hearing the band and dancing. We heard the house band which was good, the two women singers were okay - more entertainers than singers but the guy was great. There was a two drink min and...More

Truly like you're stepping into the Havana of the 1950s. When we walked in the live band was playing El Quarto de Tula which is one of my favorites - I knew it would be a good night. The entrance has a sign which clearly...More

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!
