Bars and Lounge Clubs in Habana Vieja, Havana

Bars and Lounge Clubs in Habana Vieja, Havana

 Every tourist in town wants to sip a mojito at La Bodeguita del Medio (Empedrado #207, e/ Cuba y Tacón, tel. 07/867-1374, daily 10am-midnight). However, the mojitos are weak (perhaps explaining why Hemingway didn’t sup here, contrary to legend). Go for the ambience, aided by troubadours A true Hemingway favorite offering far better and cheaper (CUC4) mojitos is the Dos Hermanos (Av. San Pedro #304, esq. Sol, tel. 07/861-3514, 11am-11pm), a recently refurbished wharf-front saloon where Hemingway bent elbows with sailors and prostitutes at the long wooden bar. There’s often live music. Hemingway enjoyed his sugarless papa doble daiquiri (double shot of rum) at El Floridita (Obispo, esq. Monserrate, tel. 07/867-1301, bar open daily 11:30am-midnight). It may not quite live up to its 1950s aura, when Esquire magazine named it one of the great bars of the world, but to visit Havana without sipping a daiquiri here would be like visiting France without tasting the wine.

Where to Find Cuban Arts and Crafts

Where to Find Cuban Arts and Crafts

The Cuban government bans the sale and export of antiques. Hence, there are no stores selling antiques to tourists. Fortunately, there are an abundance of galleries and markets that feature handmade items and artworks, from souvenir-style trinkets and kitsch to collectible pieces.

The city’s largest market is the Centro Cultural Almacenes de San José (Av. Desamparados at San Ignacio, tel. 07/864-7793, daily 10am-6pm), on the waterfront side of the Alameda and a.k.a. Feria de la Artesanía, selling everything from little ceramic gurines, miniature bongo drums, and papier-mâché 1950s autos to banana-leaf hats, crocheted bikinis, straw hats, and paintings. It has an Agencia San Cristóbal (tel. 07/864-7784) travel agency, Etecsa office with Internet, plus cafés and restaurants.
