Bars, Dance, Nightlife, Vedado

Best location: Efe Bar-Restaurante


It’s difficult to imagine a better location for a bar. Set right in the middle of 23rd Street,”Efe” Bar is a tropical oasis of palms and banana trees that invites you to exchange the city’s heat and asphalt streets for refreshing Daiquiris. During the day, the vibe is very chilled and pleasant. Low-volume and relaxing music provides the perfect backdrop for lunch, which is tasty and can be ordered off a nicely varied menu. At 21:30 though, the party starts! There’s live entertainment almost every night from jazz bands doing jam sessions to open mic nights, and on weekends DJs take over the house and play electronic music until three in the morning. There’s no shortage of vibrant energy, and the acoustics are a delight. It’s also the only place in Havana that has jelly shots! You’ll need to park around the corner. Calle 23 e/ E y F, Vedado, +53 78351857
