Most evenings there will be bands playing of varying talent but, even average Cuban bands are excellent you will find.


El Gato Tuerto – Viva la musica!


Although known primarily as a jazz bar, the El Gato Tuerto often hosts other bands and groups playing hip hop, Reggaeton, Salsa, etc. As a tourist trap prices are usually higher than other places but, you´ll soon meet a group of Cubans who have mysteriously “imported” their own bottle into the place and the fun ensues…The action can get quite “hot” as the Cubanas and Cubanos gyrate to the tunes around you. Snacks are also served throughout the whole time should you wish to leave the music and eat something at the snack bar near the entrance. All of the Old Havana Hotels are very close by and the Hotel Nacional is literally next door.

Tip: El Gato Tuerto requires more casual dress code
