Bacardi Building, Havana

(4.1/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1930, Bacardi Building is popular for its size and elegant Art Deco architecture. Once the largest building in the city, a group of architects originally designed this attraction for the Bacardi company. However, the popular rum manufacturer departed Cuba after the Cuban revolution, and the massive building has since been used for offices. Tourists are encouraged to stroll around the buidling, and Art Deco lovers should explore the interior as well. Ask about taking the elevator to the roof for sweeping views of the city.

  • If you have interest in Architecture or Art Deco, this location is not to be missed. Unlike many buildings in Havana, Edificio Bacardi is in excellent condition. The guards at the front door are very ...  more »
  • Interesting to share its structure with an art deco façade that takes back us to the story, but we did not visit just inside the hall.

  • OK to see but certainly would not go out of my way or put on my must see list. The good news is it is amongst lots of other sights worth seeing.  more »

  • You certainly can walk up and get some amazing views from the top. Just take the elevator up as far as you can, then the stairs the rest of the way. There's a security guard who's pretty great at finding you on asking for money or not letting you up. Make sure you bring some small denomination bills so you can say that's all you've got. Otherwise he keeps asking for more..
  • If you are really lucky you can walk past just before sunset and get invited in. For just 1 US dollar the security guard will let you go to the top and you can watch the beautiful sunset over Habana. Best experiance of any of my 4 trips to Cuba.
  • Art Deco building showing the magnificence of the old Cuba. Get in take a minute to see around and then climb to the topfloor with the elevator. few stairs up and you will have one of the best views in La Havana!
  • I miss the old Bacardi Rum, but a lot of history here and, a place to visit if you want to learn more about the origin of Bacardi.
  • Impactful arquitectura. All ser admirada.
