La Fábrica de Arte Cubano

The FAC is a perfect symbol of Havana's renaissance. Since it opened three years ago in the Vedado district, young locals and tourists have been flocking every weekend to this former oil factory-turned-art complex. With all its concerts, exhibitions, art projections, bars and restaurants, the hardest part is figuring out what to do first inside this uber-artistic club-slash-gallery where the nightlife gets wild.

Bar Roma

A freight elevator takes patrons up to the terrace, where you'll find a spot reminiscent of underground Soho bars in the 90's, with minimum furnishings, salvaged decorations and peeling wallpaper. Despite its somewhat unkempt appearance, this trendy bar reflects the recent energy of the Cuban capital. The rhythm is sure to get you at this minimalist rooftop watering hole.

Siá Kará Café

Tucked down a side street, just behind the National Capitol Building, a jazzy voice accompanied by saxophone melodies drifts out of an old colonial house. Hidden behind the tall windows are dim lights and a mismatched décor that brings to mind certain Parisian brasseries. This cozy little piano bar, run by a self-exiled Frenchman, gets packed at night.

Madrigal Bar Café

Grab that special someone and start your evening off right: order a couple of cocktails on Madrigal's lovely terrace where you can admire the views of Lenin Park. Owned by movie director Rafael Rosales, this artsy cafe in Vedado – Havana's historical district – is located in a huge colonial townhouse which has been converted into a loft with a tropical, relaxing atmosphere that's typical of Havana.
