Café Taberna

Bar in Habana Vieja

Founded in 1772 and glowing after a 21st-century makeover, this drinking and eating establishment is a favorite of cruisers and tour groups, who prop up the long, long bar and sink a few cocktails before dinner. The music, which gets swinging around 8pm, doffs its cap more often than not to one-time resident mambo king Benny Moré. Skip the food.
