A slice of Havana with a dash of Cajun
Formerly known as Little Havana, the truncated Havana was named JUICE’s Best Bar for Chilling Out in 2009. With a cool breezy atmosphere in which to while away the hours at the courtyard bar imagining you’re Tony Montana, regulars swear by the Mojito and Havana Colada to take the heat off. The Cuban cigars remain but you can also spark up like a midnight cowboy and order you flame grilled steaks. With the vast upstairs having played host to some interesting parties including This Feeling’s bashes with The Happy Monday’s Bez and Mani of The Stone Roses, you never quite know what to expect hanging out the balcony unless you pull up a chair
There’s a wide variety of beers on tap such as Tiger, Heineken, Guinness, Kilkenny, Paulaner and Strongbow but we recommend the cocktails: Mojito and Havana Colada, or if you’re particularly thirsty Margarita by the jug in flavours such as lychee, blackberry, peach, as well as the classic lime and strawberry. If you’re on the wagon, try the Wonky Donky, a ginger beer-based drink. Havana specialises in flame-grilled steaks. Our favourites are the flaming Jack Daniels ribs and the Mexican Burger. Got a beef with meat? Regulars love the Big Fish On The Grill too.
