Iberostar Parque Central Rooftop Bar
Iberostar Parque Central is undoubtedly one of the most illustrious places to book a room when visiting Cuba’s capital. One of its most attractive features is the rooftop bar, which guests from outside the hotel are welcome to visit.
The bar’s spectacular vista offers views across Havana’s iconic colonial district, including famous buildings such as the Fine Arts Museum, the Great Theatre of Havana and the Capitol Building. From this elevated position, you’ll also get to enjoy the added benefit of being far removed from the bustle of the crowded streets below.
The central location of Iberostar Parque Central makes it incredibly easy to reach, and with many tourist attractions close by it’s also a great jumping-off point if you’re planning a day of sightseeing. That said, once you’ve perched yourself on the rooftop of this elegant hotel, tearing yourself away is not an easy thing to do.
If you’re planning on a relaxing afternoon, you might be tempted to order yourself a snack to go with those dreamy views. Popular options include the selection of pizzas and the speciality beef burgers - freshly made using premium ground sirloin mince. The kitchen believes in serving the burger without any accompaniments or seasoning to allow its natural flavour to be truly savoured. However, if you’d like your burger cooked with any additional ingredients just let the staff know and they’ll happily to cook-to-order.
While the views are pretty impressive any time you choose to visit, it’s definitely worth timing your trip here for sunset. Cast in a golden light, Havana’s downtown - in all its faded glory, looks particularly spectacular.
Once the sun’s gone down, Iberostar Parque Central becomes a popular spot for evening drinks. Sitting here with an ice-cold mojito (one of the bar’s numerous heavenly cocktails) definitely feels like a quintessential Cuban experience. There’s also regular live music that plays late into the evening, tempting you to stay just that bit longer.
In fact, with a cooling beverage in hand and all of Havana laid out before you, it’s hard to imagine a more idyllic spot to finish off your day.
