“Drink & Salsa Music!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

Café Havana might be in a seedy neighbor hood, but with the mix of locals, tourists and police you have nothing to worry when taking a walk from within the walls of Cartagena. The Bar is about one street past the park with the obelisk and just a short 10-minute walk from the wall with the clock tower. Of course, as you probably have heard, the Mojitos are famous in Café Havana. You’ll see everyone drinking them! We arrived early and had a mojito, but decided to return when the music would be set to star, which was at 11:30 pm. We returned at 10:30 pm to ensure we had a good seat to see and hear the live salsa. By 11:30 the music was going and everyone was either dancing on the floor or wiggling on the seats. It was so much fun!

A great place to dance, party and listen to good music! A bit pricy, though.
