Havana is to Wellington’s drinking scene what Fidel Castro was to Cuba.
This place stands for something different. A different set of rules.
It might not be as shiny as the other bars, the staff might be just a little bit more tattooed and pierced than the rest of the crews on Cuba St, the crowd might be what a well mannered, compassionate conservative would describe as ‘colorful’
Despite this, and more than just a little bit because of it, this is a place you have to visit. Spontaneous music at the front of the house, pulling in anyone who’s game. Genuine, loud laughter out back, its a place that rocks.
Great selection of rums, grab a measure and a beer back and find a seat out back.
