“Located just behind the Capitol, it is one of the hippest places in the city's nightlife. Try any of their experimental cocktails and especially the "Canchánchara", a Cuban drink made with honey, lemon juice and rum or brandy.We recommend visiting the Siá Kará Café at night and enjoy its bohemian and casual atmosphere.”

“ It is the new fashionable place in the Cuban capital, it is located at the intersection of 7th A and 70th street, in Miramar. During the day and part of the night it functions as a restaurant, but later it becomes one of the best Cuban discos. Address: 7th and 70th street, Miramar, Playa, La Havana, Cuba.”

Bar
“Awesome bar to hang out and meet locals. Music is techno, fusion. They often have live music, not your tradicional Cuban music but more avant guard mix our tradicional rhythms with world trends. It only really gets going at 11pm or 12am”

Bar
“This club is literally right upstairs from the Miramar Casa de la Música. It is a smaller venue than its downstairs neighbor and is generally a bit calmer, although when popular reggaeton acts are playing, the dance floor can get pretty frenetic. This is also a later night place going on all the way to 6am with waves of people coming and going. Address: Calle 35, esquina 20, Playa. Phone: (+53)7204 - 0447. Open 11pm-6am Tue-Sun.”

Movie Theater
“This bar is named after the first Cuban film that had a gay theme. It has a very cinematic atmosphere. While most places are geared toward men, there are events here that are specifically for women. On the first three Fridays of the month, an all-girl pop group performs from 8 pm to 2 am, accompanied by female dancers. ”

Cafe
“Hidden in the bowels of Edificio Focsa, this TV-themed cafe is a funky dinner/performance venue lauded by those in the know for its cheap food and hilarious comedy nights. If you're willing to brave the frigid air-con and rather foreboding underground entry tunnel, head here for fresh burgers, healthy salad, pasta and chicken cordon bleu.”
