Cafe Havana is one of those "must go to places". The music was good. But, the dance floor is practically non-existent. The place is small and the bar takes up most of the room. Also, it seems like a spot for mostly tourists.

It's worth visiting once. I bristled at the cover charge (I think around 35K COP?) but really in any major city in the USA a club of this caliber would be demanding a higher cover charge than that. Their drinks are also overpriced FOR COLOMBIA,...More

This place is as Cuban as Hard Rock Cafe is a great rock venue. If you want tourists, expensive drinks, entitled/sluggish service, reasonable (but late starting - 11.15pm)music, go here. You won’t find a single Colombian in the bar. Having been to Cuba, this place...More

Over priced with poor service. This place seems to be on every Cartagena must do list and I cannot see why. The cover charge is steep (30k pesos per person) and the service is slow and miserable - I've never seen such a bunch of...More

A bit overpriced. $45000 peso to enter. Music was great. Atmosphere very cool. We had the monitors which were very good.

Cage Havana in Cartagena is a great place to hear authentic Afro Cuban music. Authentic in its presentation, virtuosity and feeling. The music is both artistic and accessible. Yes, there is dancing! Lots of dancing you’ll dance too! Get there early, the music started at...More

If you love to salsa this is your place. It gets really crowded around 11pm but the music and dancing were awesome.

The Café Havana is famous for its live music: indeed it's quite good (but nothing special). However, it does not start before 11 p.m. or 11:30 p.m. so don't go there early. The entry fee is really high for Colombia (30,000 pesos) and most of...More

This place is absurdly overpriced (30,000 pesos), but definitely worth it for the live music. No Colombian is going to pay this price, so you're only going to see a bunch of tourists there. I personally don't travel to party with fellow tourists, but I...More

It's preferred to have a reservation or it is better to go at 7:30-8:00 pm before the site gets crowded and it's OK for two ladies going along. Have a rum from Colombia caribbean coast and enjoy the night!
