From the tragically touristy to the totally local, our top 10 nightlife guide to Havana takes you to places that reveal Havana’s complexity… and, of course, its love of music, dance, and drink!
10. Casa de la Musica
Casa de la Musica is one of the best places for live music and local culture in Havana. With shows every night of the week and a punishing schedule (4 PM -7 PM and 10 PM – 2 AM), you’d be lying if you came home and said you weren’t able to find any place with live local music and dancing.
Address: Galiano between Neptuno y Concordia, Centro Habana
9. El Delirio Habanero
If any night spot in Havana can legitimately be called laid back, El Delirio Habanero is it. This is a great spot for a romantic evening. El Delirio Habanero is a piano lounge that doubles as a performance space hosting comedians and cabaret. Popular with locals and tourists, its location on the fourth floor of the National Theatre offers fantastic night views of the city and, especially, the impressive Monumento a la Revolucion.
Address: Plaza de la Revolucion, Paseo y Calle 39
8. Café Cantante Mi Habana
