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.

  • We arrived early - the lines can be long to get in. It is one of the most interesting places I went to in Havana. Very interesting performance art, painting, sculpture, photography, music, food, films...  more »
  • It is a factory which has several 'craft' and you can find a different atmosphere in each: Art Gallery, live music, theatre, disco-bar, etc. A very successful concept. Best of all is that not only attracts tourists but Cubans also.

  • My favourite place in Havana - extremely urban, perfect fit if you want to see some art, listen to music, have a drink or event a dinner! Definitely must see in Havana!  more »

  • 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.
  • Cool place for art afine people. Very international. After 9pm a party starts. There is live music all over the place.
  • This is a very interesting place to spend your night at. Loved the art, drinks and the food was very good too.
  • An incredible artistic space! Inside you will find art, music, drinks, food, and dancing. Come there early to avoid the line (get dinner next door at El Cocinero prior) and always negotiate with the cabby to go back wherever you're going
  • Fabulous hidden secret..wonderful installation of art, fashion, design, music & Dance It's a cross section of all of the above sectors, guaranteed to satisfy and have you going back.

Where to stay in Havana

Old Havana remains the most popular neighborhood to stay in Cuba's capital. Here you'll find all manner of accommodations, from budget guesthouses and bed and breakfasts to luxury hotels. Some of the back streets in the old town can be quite rough, so visitors with children might want to steer clear of the area. Providing a quieter, more residential alternative, the western suburb of El Vedado exudes a relaxed atmosphere and serves as the perfect spot for a family vacation. If you're after better beach access, look farther west to the upper-class district of Miramar.
