Cuban Restaurant
“Ernest Hemingway lived outside Havana for twenty years, and naturally got much of the inspiration for his novels from the city—more specifically, from its bars. El Floridita, Dos Hermanos and La Bodeguita del Medio were Hemingway’s favorite bars when he lived there, and today they can be visited just like any other bar. Watch out though, as a few of them have turned into tourist traps. La Bodeguita was my favorite Hemingway-approved watering hole and still retains much of the subdued, authentic atmosphere you’d expect Hemingway probably loved. They have live salsa music, and also make a mean mojito, which never hurts.”

Nightclub
“ This really is the place to go if you want to see the very best Cuban salsa bands. The Galiano venue quickly gained a reputation as the best venue for salsa after its opening in 2003. There is much more space in the Galiano venue than its slightly posher twin in Miramar which allows you to bar perch if you want to take a break from the dance floor. When the big bands play, covers go up dramatically but the frantic energy and packed venues make it worthwhile and an experience to remember. Less popular bands struggle to fill up the venue so it’s worth checking to see who’s playing.”

Cocktail Bar
“La Bodeguida del Medio is a perfect place to drink fresh Mojito after a long day of sightseeing! The bar claims to being the birthplace of the Mojito cocktail, prepared in the bar since its opening in 1942. The menu is typically Cuban: boiled rice, black beans, pork shank, manioc, pig shank roasted in its juice, pork rinds and toasted fried plantains. ”
