In Cuba, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a craft cocktail or an extensive beer hall with a ton of taps. For various reasons (like 50 years of austerity, etc., etc.), Cuban drinking culture hasn’t evolved much beyond classic mojitos, daiquiris, and Cuba Libres (all made with Havana Club rum, of course), and there are only two types of beer: light Cristal and dark Bucanero. But when you party in Havana, what you’re drinking is always secondary to where you’re drinking.
Since going out with the express purpose of consuming alcoholic beverages is basically a foreign concept to Cubans, “bars,” such as these 11, are either small clubs with live music or tapas bars where you can talk. Either way, when 11:30pm hits, everyone will be dancing.
