Cafe Paris

4) Cafe Paris

Although named Café París, this club is not French, but Cuban - the huge quantities of rum, live music and crowds that are prone to spontaneously dance or sing, make it so. The prices are as to be expected from a Cuban pub, but the service is laid back, so be patient and enjoy your rum. Partake in a dance or two while waiting for your next drink to arrive.

Taberna de la Muralla

5) Taberna de la Muralla

Taberna de la Muralla may not be the most Cuban-style place you can visit in Havana, but it's definitely a place you must visit while in the city. Here, you may find the best beer around, it's produced on site and its quality is the main feature of Taberna de la Muralla. While enjoying this home brew, visitors may choose to sit on outside benches simply laid out on the cobblestones. The grill in the yard works well and you can order a meal that you'll see cooked just in front of you.
