More a cafe than a bar, this airy and colorful establishment may be the most relaxed social environment in Havana. Bar Bohemio should not be confused with a late-night party venue. It’s really more of a European-style cafe, which is appropriate, as its owners are Italian.
Both former dancers in Contemporary Dance of Cuba, the owners have decorated Bar Bohemio accordingly: it’s modern, stylish, and still manages to maintain one of the friendliest and most welcoming atmospheres in the city.
Airy and spacious, and with patio seating, this makes a charming place for a daytime meal, but is an especially lovely location for an early evening meal, when the outside seating is particularly pleasant.
Located in a mansion in the Vedado district, there are few cafes and restaurants which command such an impressive space. Bar Bohemio is also known for being a gay-friendly establishment, a relative rarity in Havana until very recently.
Bar Bohemio specializes in tapas prepared with the artistic flair that is a hallmark of the cafe. The staff is very attentive and it’s not unusual to meet the owners, who enjoy spending time among their guests.
For visitors who are looking for a loud, all-night party venue, Bar Bohemio won’t meet the mark. This is a casual, quiet environment that aims to make guests feel at home rather than keep them dancing all night. It’s also suitable for families with children.
