© Boadas Boadas

Set up in 1933 by Miguel Boadas, born to Catalan parents in Havana (where he became the first barman at the legendary La Floridita), this classic cocktail bar has changed little since Hemingway used to come here. It's a fascinating den that seems to stand still in time, retaining a lot of brilliance from the past and offering a spectacular cocktail service. And if you have doubts about the appeal of this bar, you can admire the wall of photos, where you'll see an indecent number of actors, painters, writers, and other bohemian beasts who have drowned their liver here throughout the years. In a move to deter the hordes of rubbernecking tourists, it has instituted a dress code.
