Malecon

"The Wall of love! Love for music, love for the sea, love for the people. The Wall goes along the coastline and is the best place to sit and keep partying in the street with your friends when the party is over. All kinds of people go and have fun there"

Centro Cultural Bertolt Brecht

"When sweating is melody! Musical jams and concerts that are fire, dope music, the avant-garde of Cuban fusion: salsa, jazz, funk, Afro-Cuban genres or whatever occur to you. The concerts start around midnight and people just go crazy dancing. Don’t miss Wednesday’s concert of Interactivo, a crazy and virtuoso collective of musicians gathered by pianist Roberto Carcassés. I started my musical career there and perform with Interactivo when I’m in Cuba"

La Casa de la Bombilla Verde

"The best place to discover Trova and Trovadores, a movement of Cuban songwriters. You can go for concerts and jams and then just have beers or cocktails with the crew, it’s a very informal and friendly place"

Hostal Malecon 663

"A hostel, a bar and a jewel of neo-colonial architecture. Recently renovated with a crew of young Cuban architects and designers, every room is decorated according to a famous song of Cuban music. They do regular concerts and jam sessions on the rooftop where you’ll have one of the nicest views of Havana and the sea"

Zenit Tattoo Studio

"For the tattoo lovers. A little house in Santa Fe village, in the outskirts of Havana. Super nice people, great artists and chill vibes closes to the sea!"
