56 Articles in this collection

Get out and about and head deep into town when in Havana to find the best evening entertainment venues. On this blog collection we're all about giving you insightful tips on where to head in Cuba's capital for an outstanding night out; whether you're looking for a mellow place to unwind (perhaps to the sounds of sultry Latin jazz tunes) or a fast-paced salsa joint to dance the night away or even a trendy nightclub in which to party the night away among the locals.

Even if you prefer doing nothing of the sort and have more peculiar interests, we'll still have things to recommend, for example if you're nostalgic about rock we know where to take you in Havana to listen to Cubans performing some great rock classics, or if rap is your thing we'll have some underground, off-the-beaten path venues to suggest and even if you want to see a live show, be it cabaret, ballet, contemporary dance or afro-Cuban rumba and folklore - it's all here, you'll find it in this very collection; the place to check out every once in a while to keep up with the latest concerts or performances and the blog space to read in order to plan the most unforgettable Havana nights.
