Bar Monserrate is a great place to sample a slice of traditional Havana nightlife. Situated in an attractive corner of Old Havana near the Parque Centra, the bar is popular and atmospheric with high ceilings and an abundance of dark wooden paneling. While it attracts its fair share of tourists, it’s also still a favourite with locals, thanks in large part to the ambience and the frequent live music. When the band playing are on form the mood can be electric, and while the food can be more miss than hit, the cocktails are always spot on.
