Fabrica de Arte Cubano, Havana

4.7
Head to the heart of Cuban contemporary art at Fabrica de Arte Cubano, an events and exhibition space. Situated in what was once the headquarters of the city's electricity company, and later an olive oil factory, the cultural center opened in 2014. Showcasing Cuban music, theater, dance, and visual arts, the center often combines more than one art form in its exhibits. Performances and exhibits are delivered in a clear, conversational style that seeks to demystify the artistic process and make it relevant to younger generations.

  • Really, really cool place. It had all different types of art on multiple levels as well as a band playing salsa in one area, a huge sitting area playing video of past concerts on a big screen, a restaurant, and a live rock band with several bars throughout. Really fun place to go and super unique. Don't let the line scare you, it moves fast
  • Must see. It is not as unique as cubans think but it has some very good quality art on display. Do not fall for boy offering faster entry for extra money. The line moves fast. Just wait
  • Great space with multi levels of tasteful art showcase. There's also an outdoor seating space on one end of the second floor, with a bar in sight! You pay a small entry fee, and then you are given a card that you must hold on to in order to pay at the end of your night. I actually find it useful because this eliminates the distraction of handling monetary transaction and let the staff focus more on servicing. Your orders are added on the card and you pay at the end when leaving the facility.
  • An amazing place, something between a museum of modern art and a club, with many different spaces with different things going on. Highly recommended.
  • This place is great. They have live music, dancing classes in which anyone can take part on, different bars with several cocktails and a small place to get some food and nibbles. The art expositions and the sort of labyrinth this place makes it a must in Havana.
