The awarded Prague bar La Casa de la Havana Vieja uniquely combines the tradition of old Cuban bars with up-to-date mixology.

The interior consisting of dark-wood furniture and a tiled floor is based on a simple colonial style. The authenticity of this family bar is enhanced by photographs on the walls depicting Cuba and its lifestyle. In the last of the bar's three rooms, which can also be used for private events, you will find a true gem—a glass showcase housing an impressive family collection of rums comprising some one hundred bottles. You can also sit in the bar's garden surrounded by green plants and forget the hustle and bustle of the city. La Casa de la Havana Vieja specializes in interesting rums that you can sample by ordering one of the rum tasting menus. Whether you choose a 2.5 hour guided tasting menu or go for a la carte with an expert commentary, the world of rum will open up to you. But rum is not the only reason to visit La Casa de la Havana Vieja. Its bar team follows the latest global trends and applies them to the local scene. Its current cocktail menu contains tasty local ingredients that are blended together using techniques such as clarification, fermentation, sous-vide, and others. The bartenders will also prepare a custom cocktail for you, so let them know what liquor and flavors you prefer, and they'll whip up an amazing concotion just for you. Every Wednesday and Thursday, La Casa de la Havana Vieja holds Cuban evenings with live Caribbean music. If you are attracted by the atmosphere of a Cuban bar with perfect service and a great offer of drinks, do not miss La Casa de la Havana Vieja, which, incidentally, ranked among the Top 10 Best Night Bars in the Czech Republic according to Maurer's Grand Bar 2012 and 2013.
