Fábrica de Arte Cubano
This antique oil factory is an excellent place to get an idea of the Cuban art scene in one visit. It has exhibits of more than 50 artists at once. I like to call this place, “the mousetrap of the arts,” because here we trap the visitor within a labyrinth of visual art. Go Thursday through Sunday evenings, so you can enjoy the performances—theater, live music, film, and more—and have a drink.
This is a real arts factory. At FAC you can enjoy concerts, performances, photo exhibitions, wacht a movie, you name it. Plus the many bars that offer Cuban and international cocktails. That atmosphere where arts and entertainment are so intertwinned, is really unique.
The very best place to enjoy nightlife in Havana. It's a combination of several bars, a restaurant, a concert hall and and art gallery. There's always live music and a wonderful vibe.
La Fábrica de Arte Cubano is an art gallery and club in Havana, Cuba. The Fábrica's gallery and stage were established inside of a former cooking oil factory, and has since gained notoriety as one of Havana's premier nightclubs and art galas.
It is an excellent place to enjoy Cuban and international art in almost all its expressions, dance, music, cinema, painting, among others.
Havanaʼs most popular contemporary music venue. It features art exhibitions, live music, theatre, dancing and more. Open from Thursday to Sunday - you won´t be disappointed.

“Is one of the most characteristic postcards of the city. In the center of the square is the Jose Martí Memorial and around it are official buildings, whose facades are carved in steel the faces of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos.”
“This is one of the great successes on the scene of Cuban cuisine, the main restaurant has a great outdoor terrace where you can dine beneath the stars. On the third floor, there is an open-air dining area with a bar for great cocktails and a tapas-style menu. It offers inspiring, fresh organic food.”
“Concerts, go there and check out their schedule. Big Cuban bands play there a few times a week.”

“The Great Theater of Havana is famous, particularly for the acclaimed National Ballet of Cuba and its founder Alicia Alonso. It sometimes performs the National Opera. The theater is also known as concert hall, Garcia Lorca, the biggest in Cuba. It's located beside "The Capitolio".”
“Located in the former Presidential Palace, with the boat Granma on display in front of the museum. The former ''Presidential Palace' was designed by the Cuban architect Rodolfo Maruri and the Belgian architect Paul Belau who also designed the Centro Gallego, presently the Gran Teatro de La Habana. The "Presidential Palace" was inaugurated in 1920 by President Mario García Menocal. It remained the Presidential Palace until the Cuban Revolution of 1959. The building has Neo-Classical elements, and was decorated by Tiffany Studios of New York City.”
