Edificio Bacardi, Havana: 1 reviews and 2 photos

 
 

In the center of Havana, along the Calle Monserrate you will find the former headquarters of Bacardí, the famous rum company. The building dates from 1930 and shows a close kinship to New York's art deco towers. It's a fantastic construction with polychrome ceramic decorations. The tower was one of the first skyscrapers in Havana and is crowned with the Bacardí bat, that is also used as a weathercock. The granite was imported from Bavaria and Norway. The Bacardí building is in good shape, and still contains a lot of the original interior decorations. In 2001 it was under renovation by an Italian-Cuban association.
Photographs of the interior, taken from the bar on the mezzanine floor. Forget about Hemingway and try your quality cocktail here. Thats another gem in Havana and one of our favorite places to have a drink, snack or proper meal.
