Nice coffee break

My friend and I recently stopped here to enjoy local coffee during a cruise ship excursion. Service was good and the coffee was great. Check it out!

We went here for a drink before dinner. The bar inside is quite spacious and typical with all photos on walls. The drinks were good. A bit pricey for colombian standards but worth it. When we were here it was quite empty inside but after dinner we come back and it was packed with people waiting outside. So i recommed... More

Our hotel told us Club Havana was sold out the evening we planned at the end of December, but we ignored them and went anyhow. No problem getting in with the cover charge- the bouncer insisted on seeing cash but let us in. Completely packed but we got a spot at the bar right across from the band. Great evening,... More

Such a great time, the band was great & the recorded salsa music playing during the rest of the night was classic. We got a chance to dance, have conversations with fellow patrons. The bands start around 11 - 11:30 p.m., so ignore the 9 p.m. start time they may tell you. But you may want to get there before... More

You just have to go for the history and music and the vibe. Great place and fun. Everything including the cover charge is overpriced though....

I am an old lady who never goes out to hear music at home, but this place was fantastic! We arrived at 9:30 for a 11:30 show on a Monday night, which was too early as we could have arrived an hour later and still gotten a table. But we whiled away the time chatting in our terrible Spanish with... More

Best place to have fun and dance salsa in Cartagena (with live music) I went there with some friends, and we loved the place. The only negative thing is that it´s always crowded.

Plentiful a la carte rums to choose from. Barranquillan, Cartagenian and Colombian rums to taste by the glass. With ice or in shots, a great place to be in the old city. Prefered to be visited late at night, but on fridays go before 8 pm to get a good seat with friends.
