In the area of the Vedado neighborhood, this bar has been visited not only by the most famous celebrities in the world of business, film, commerce, politics, and science but also by the Italian-American mafia, who stayed at the hotel since its opening in 1930. The walls are decorated with photos of its visitors. Some of the furniture used in the casinos and gambling halls of the 50's can still be seen in this place.
Time to enjoy a delicious cocktail: Alcapone
* Continue to the Sloppy Joe’s Bar.
This historic bar was opened in 1917 and is located in Old Havana. The advent of Prohibition in the United States spurred its original owner, Jose Abeal Otero, to change the emphasis from food service to liquor service when American tourists visited Havana for the nightlife, the gambling and the alcohol they could not obtain back home. During the 1940s and 1950s it was a magnet for American celebrities as well as tourists wanting to mingle with them. This place is also known for having one of the longest bars in Havana and an extensive cocktail menu.

Undoubtedly, this is one of the most famous bars in Havana, known as "The cradle of the daiquiri".

There you will enjoy the atmosphere of the Cuban 50's, as well as its typical drink and specialty of the casa, the delicious Daiquiri.
* Bodeguita del Medio
This is a famous restaurant-bar in Havana. It is the birthplace of the Mojito cocktail, prepared in the bar since its opening in 1942. Its rooms are full of curious objects, frames, photos, as well as the walls covered by signatures of famous or unknown customers, recounting the island's past. Numerous writers, artists and celebrities were regulars of the Bodeguita, and today you’ll have the opportunity of enjoying its amazing Mojito.
* Ley Seca
A new bar and restaurant in Havana's Old Town that recreates the speakeasy atmosphere of typical American bars at the turn of the century, in a successful blend of exoticism and history.
