We were walking in the area looking for a place to have some drinks and stopped in Havana. Drinks were good and nicely priced. Also enjoyed some live music (although not Cuban, sorry to say). Did enjoy and do recommend.

I tried the chicken enchiladas for a carryout lunch. The lunch menu enchiladas comes with beans and rice. Really delicious. And really reasonable price. Looking to come back for dinner with the hubs, and a ladies night with friends.

There is valet parking on weekends for sure. I'm uncertain about during the week. There is a parking garage directly across the street as well.
