We went late at night for a business cocktails. The place was nice and cozy, very good service and the drinks were excellent. Except for the angry-looking bartender, the waitresses were kind and solicitous. I recommend the outside area and the mojitos.

100% must visit!! This place is amazing!! Dinner and two cocktails costs less than $30 CUC and the second time we went was about $35 CUC. Great size meals, great tasting cocktails, amazing staff. A must visit. Just don’t go too early as Cubans have dinner from 9pm. Do yourself a favour and go here

We visited the Melon Club on our people-to-people cultural exchange tour with the Grand Circle Foundation. The bar is a social club for local domino players. They serve lunch and teach the tour group members to play "double-nine" dominoes. The outdoor patio is very charming, and a perfect setting for lunch and the dominoes instruction afterwards. The food was excellent, the conversation was warm and friendly, and the instruction on how to play "double-nine" dominoes was very informative and highly entertaining. What a great afternoon!

This is a social club for domino players and they serve lunch and teach people to play dominoes. The setting is quite lovely and the players are fluent in English. They first explained the game to us and gave us written instructions. Then they sat with us for a nice lunch and general conversation. Afterwards they supervised our play of dominoes and it was a grand time. We all enjoyed a great afternoon and learned a lot about the people and the game.

Arrived there like at 11pm with the idea of getting pre-drinks so I could continue my way bar hopping through Miramar area in a warm Havana Night, I was amazed by the decoration around the first Bar Inside, music was good and from what I could see mostly artist , designers, musicians and hipsters gather to release stress of a busy week at work in Havana. There is Art all over the place inside. I went to the Patio and ask for a whiskey red label Jhonny Walker, great customer service, the bar tender was a nice and polite so the rest of the crew all the way to the lady seating by the restroom. Great atmosphere and the most healthy, classy place in Miramar. One thing they didn't have was a Cuban Cigar to go with my Whiskey.Having No Cigars at a Bar in Havana is like eating your french fries without Ketchup...so that way you know french fries go with Ketchup,,not with another different souce KETCHUP, like Las Ketchup the Spanish girls that use to play that song Asereje back in 2002. Exactly, great experience and nothing to fear any Bar from Wynwood or Midtown area in Miami.
