Drinking & Nightlife

Cuban bars range from overpriced Hemingway-endorsed cocktail bars in Havana to grubby dives selling paint-stripper flavored rum in rural Las Tunas. You can procure cheap beer anywhere and almost every Cuban bar(wo)man worth their salt knows how to mix a passable mojito.

A huge number of Cuban bars offer good quality (and free) live music. Dancing is invariably de rigueur.
