The world Famous Cafe Havana was quite the experience. Once you arrive, you are greeted by the Body Guards holding the door shut. The admission is 25,000 a person paid immediately on entry, like a low class strip club. The place was full of older...More

The band is amazing. The bartender had a very strong pour which is always great. It is a very compact club so get there early if you plan to sit. Overall a great environment.

The band comes on around 23:30, so pace yourself with those drinks, as the dancing starts late. There is limited space for the band, so don't expect complex salsa music requiring too many musicians. Cocktails are very good- go for the aged rum mojito and...More

At no fault to the place itself, the place is packed with want to be salsa dancers. I'm all for everyone having fun and enjoying themselves but there is not an equal mix of people. This place is full tourist. Positives are that the service...More

Great live cuban music, good drinks, attentive bartenders, but tight quarters on a Thursday night at 11:30 when we went. Was our last stop in Cartagena and glad we made it in, but was only worth hanging out for 30-45 minutes as it was packed...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!
