"The Cigars" Cuba Favorite Tip by jorognst

Cuba General: 276 reviews and 209 photos

  First bar to visit in Havana
by jorognst

Favorite thing: A good reason to visit Cuba - the CIGARS.
And the Mojito.

Fondest memory: Strolling down the Prado late night. Bars on both sides of the street. The Basement is in the middle, like Barcelonas Las Rambla. To the right we hear load salsa music. It is our first evening in Havana. The owner offers me a free cigar. Tast like heaven. Order our first Mojitos. Good, but not very strong. Wonderful music playing, nice people talking to us. It is something special about the first bar you visit in a new city. Many mojitos and cubra libres later we returned to Hotel Inglaterra
