Located just outside the walled city in Getsemani (best to go and return by taxi). Cafe Habana is the best Salsa bar in Cartagena (or maybe anywhere?) .  Touched by amber lights, the walls covered in framed photos of legendary Salsa stars: Celia Cruz, Johnny Pacheco, … Cuban rum flows while salsa bands swings and the crowd is pulled along for the ride.
A real mixed crowd of locals and tourists (unlike the majority of Cartagena night spots), Cafe Habana is a must if you want to have an authentic night out.  So be ready for the crowds  on weekends as it is pulling clientele from all over the city.

Although you don’t go there for the food, there is a simple menu that can soften a bit of the the rum you will keep drinking, especialy in this city where every kitchen is closed by 10 pm :-)
