Top choice live performance in Vedado

The brainchild of Afro-Cuban fusion musician X-Alfonso, this is one of Havana’s finest new art projects – an intellectual nexus for live music, art expos, fashion shows and invigorating debate over coffee and cocktails. There isn't a pecking order or surly bouncer in this converted cooking-oil factory in Vedado.

Instead you can mingle with the artists, musicians and mainly Cuban clientele for electrifying 'happenings,' which kick off at 8pm Thursday to Sunday in the Bauhaus-like interior. Check the website for upcoming acts. FAC closes for a month every three months, in January, May and September.
