Cafe Havana is a famous bar with great live music and a cool atmosphere. If you don't mind a crowded place or paying the cover, you should definitely go.

Not impressed. My best friend and I were approaching the front; when the bouncer was already pointing at the sign of the $30,000 ($10 US) pesos entrance fee. He tells us again while inside; it is $30,000 (we can read, and you already told us...More

It gets seriously packed in here, so arrive early to get a seat. If you're a salsa dancer who needs a little space, that's all you're going to get! The live band is super loud for the space, so bring earplugs if you value your...More

This has to be the place for a night out when visiting Cartagena. Live music, dancing and good service.

Seems like the service from Cuba reached this nice bar. Even though the pace was not full at all had to wait 20min for a beer. Also beware. Band comes on at 11:15 and cover is 30,000 peso per person approx $10.

This is a great place for salsa music, not much space to dance. It is packed. Live music does not start till 10pm. Go around 9pm if you want to have a table to sit down.

Bring cash as their credit card policy is a bit off putting but, the music was great and it was a good time. The drinks were ok but, you are really their for the music. Eat elsewhere as the menu doesn't have much to offer.

First of all if you see negative reviews about limited space, the type of crowd, or being solicited drugs at this place none of them are true, in fact these are the ppl the establishment would be better without. We were staying at a nearby...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!
