You MUST have a mojito at La Bodeguita, where Hemingway did the same! There's a gift shop next door to the bar in case you want to buy a souvenir!

The lead vocal's voice, band's harmony and the sound from a princess's flute drew me instantly into the bar! The signatures and autographs on the walls (both in & out of the bar) were amazing! I recorded the song and have listened to it countless...More

It's terribly hot inside, there's barely no ventilation, the mojitos and food are very good, but also very expensive. You'll enjoy and dehydrate, it's a unique experience.

Mojitos were expensive, but you can sit on the curb outside this place and listen to music and people watch, it was actually a lot of fun!
