Located in Playa, Habana, Sangri-La offers cheap drinks and the entertainment is amazing. The bartenders are all handsome and fast and they put on a show while they make the drinks. The music is also awesome.  The place is small and exclusive and the doormen can be surly and rude.

Address: 21 y 42, Habana, Cuba

Up & Down

Up and Down is always packed at the weekends. The decor is sharp and normally there is a hardy atmosphere over two floors, with two cocktail bars. The top one is a VIP area. Watch out for the minimum $20CUC consumption per person – this is aimed and priced for foreigners. The bottom one is more for dancing and music. Also upstairs there is a super quiet place with very good service. If you are looking for an international wave of foreigners mixed with Cubans this could be the place for you. It is not a bad venue and I’ve had some enjoyable times downstairs.

Calle 5ta y B, Vedado. Mon-Sun, 3pm-3am.


Around the corner from the Swiss Embassy, and just off 5ta Avendia (Fifth Avenue), we have TaBARish, a contemporary Soviet bar with historic memorabilia.
