Cuba Nightlife

  • La Rumba

    Varadero Nightlife

    La Rumba is a pretty wild and exciting bar on certain nights of the week. They have a bubble machine on the ceiling, and the dance floor was about a foot deep with bubbles while we were there. If you're okay with the concept of "anything goes" then you will probably have a fun time at La Rumba. As I said, pretty much anything goes.

  • Tropicana

    Havana Nightlife

    Tropicana is a little expensive to go to but i think that you should go there if you are in Havana. The music is good, the costumes is fantastic and the artists are very good. No special dresscode but people coming there tend to have nice evening clothes on.

  • Casa de la Trova

    Santiago de Cuba Nightlife

    This place holds maybe 100 - 120 people. The performers change during the course of the evening but are generally of an impressive standard. Most of the people that are in the crowd seem to be touristy couple but it isn't exclusively like that. There's some Cubans also go numerous of whom approached me. Within no more than a few mins max on each...

    Trinidad Nightlife

    Its namesake is a drink of the region made from lemon juice, honey and aged Havana Club brand rum served in glazed pottery. This concoction mixes with the magic of a place frozen in time, charming those who have been coming here for decades. This was the drink of the Mambises (name given the Liberating Army). The tavern is part of one of the city's...

We met at the club and I left early the next morning because it was the last day of my vacation (and the first day of yours)... We talked alot, you seem interesting....

  • Casa de la Musica

    Havana Nightlife

    A big stage with bands playing, in front of it the dance floor and around the dance floor tables/seats and bars. Very good atmosphere a good place to practize your salsa skills, or just dance the night away. There is no special dress code.

  • Havana Cafe

    Varadero Nightlife

    A nice club, went there couple of times only because it was located in the resort where i stayed. Usually they played spanish pop music and around 12:00 people would start to fill up the place but there was always not enough people inside Try Pina collada it's great and if you tip the bartenders soon they'll remember what you are drinking and...

  • Florodita

    Havana Nightlife

    I appreciate the historical connection this old Havana bar has to the world in regards to its association with famed author Ernest Hemingway. I've always liked finding cafes, plazas, and old hotels where famous historical figures spent time while in these various cities. Apparently old Hemingway enjoyed more than a few nights hanging out in El...

    Holguín Nightlife

    The was this bar at our hotel that would turn into a disco at night. It didn't look that great but boy did we have good times in there at night. Don't wear too much...it gets really warm after a couple of drinks mixed with dancing.

    Santiago de Cuba Nightlife

    View of Parque Cespedes from the balcony of our casa. Lots of tourist shops line this park. During the Festival of Carribean Culture this is also the focal point of music, dance and art exhibits from all over the Carribean (one week in early July). At night, this park is the centre of jinetera activity. You can avoid them however and just watch...

  • Mambo Club

    Varadero Nightlife

    Due to the glut of all-inclusive hotels round here, nightclubs have trouble attracting business. If you venture out just once then come to Mambos - I doubt there is a better night out in Varadero. Nightclub is at the far end of the peninsular, attached to the Club Amigo hotel. Cover charges vary with the wind, apparently including all your drinks...

  • Parisien

    Havana Nightlife

    Located at the Hotel Nacional, this venerable cabaret show is a vibrant and extravagant spectacle. Still, it will always play second fiddle to the Tropicana, which trumps it in terms of size and setting. Nevertheless, the show here is less expensive, and certainly more convenient

  • La Bamba

    Varadero Nightlife

    So I heard this place was real fun. It was okay, but not amazing. Usually was the same music everynite but if you go there once or twice, you'll have fun. Free drinks and entrance if you're a guest at the tuxpan, otherwise its $10 and all you can drink. Has great potential, just needs more people in it. New Years Eve though at this club was a...

  • La Zorra y el Cuervo Jazz Club

    Havana Nightlife

    If you like Jazz music then Cuba is the place to go! The latin inspired Jazz is incredible -AND I DON'T EVEN REALLY LIKE JAZZ . There are two main clubs in Havana, the Jazz Cafe on the Malecon, a large and modern second floor club. And La Zorra y El Cuervo on La Rampa, a small smoky atmospheric basement place on La Rampa. Anything

  • The Malecón

    Havana Nightlife

    Yes, you have to go to the Bodeguita and have your Mojito and go to the Floridita to have your Daquiri (as Hemingway did). You can even get fancy and see a show at the Tropicana or some of the best salsa bands at the Casa de la Musica. But once you have done that just head to the Malecon, sit down with a bottle of Havana Club and enjoy the views...

  • Pico Blanco - Rincón del Feeling

    Havana Nightlife

    We had long wondered what this club was about after watching it alight many nights atop the 14th floor of the St. John's Hotel in Vedado. It was a really fun place, packed with mostly young Cubans and a mix of reggueton, salsa, Euro-club music and a bit of (funny and annoying) Cuban karaoke. On a weekend, it was 10 CUC entrance per person but this...

  • Habana Café

    Havana Nightlife

    Can't really describe how I felt that night at the Habana Cafe. It was a mixture of feelings and all of them positive ones. I found myself looking around the place and dreaming of the past. The interior decoration will transport you back to the 50's or before. I love vintage cars and photography, good live music and drinks, so this was for me a...

  • Delirio Habanero'

    Havana Nightlife

    Wonderfull place to enjoy a good evening, with good live music. U can even dance if U want, but most of the people remind on their seats usually. The tipycal music U'll hear here is boleros, jazz, solos and maybe some salsa or traditional music. Go early before they open at 10pm because it can be full really fast and close. No shorts

  • La Bodeguita del Medio'

    Havana Nightlife

    This place is and will no doubt continue to be Cuba's best known bar. For afficionados of Ernest Hemmingway it may be worth a visit but beyond that it is stunningly unremarkable. The bar area at the front is very small and if they get a dozen people in there it is like being a sardine. There's a restaurant area round the back where the have the...

    We stumbled across this bar in Obespo street as we heard fantastic music coming through the wide open doors. We went in and found you can also eat as well as drink and listen to a variety of great bands. We returned at night to find the same quality of music and a fantastic atmosphere. The bands pass a hat/cup round after they play a set and then...

So does the overflow of mojitos and Cristal beer.The cover is $10 USD...I...

    A great place for jazz in Havana. With its location below street level and cozy atmosphere I'm reminded of the Village Vangaurd.Except here you can still enjoy your Series D #4 with some hot Jazz and a cool Mojito. Cover charge is $10.00 and includes 2 Mojitos. Clothing is required.

    By the way. About your comment about the "young proud communists" there.That was one of many things I was totally surprised about:The young Cubans seemed to be more pro-USA and capitalist like than in any other country I've visited so far in Latin America. For example they attach much importance to have branded clothes. They also like to hear a lot...
