Dear friends and family,

I am very excited to host you during the opening weekend of my exhibition: SINK.
Here are my top recommendations of places to eat, drink and have fun around Havana. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need any assistance with bookings and reservations.
Thanks again for joining me in this epic weekend. Can't wait to see you all!
Address: y Río. Jaimanitas, La Habana, 3c23 e/ 3raC 240 A, La Habana, Cuba
Located in the neighborhood of Santa Fe. This is a very hidden gem for fresh sea food. Everything served was caught that morning. El Santy is the name of the boat they use to fish for the menu. Great ceviche.
*No reservation needed.
San Cristobal Paladar
Address: San Rafael, La Habana, Cuba
Phone: +53 5339 4017
Very famous Paladar for traditional cuisine. This is the only place Obama ate at when he visited cuba because he liked it so much.
Address: Obispo, La Habana, Cuba
Phone: +53 7 8671300
This is where the daiquiris were invented and were Hemingway would come daily sit in the corner to drink and write. Very touristy but worth checking out.
Address: Av. Del Puerto, La Habana, Cuba
This is the oldest bar that is still running in La Habana vieja its my personal favorite and where they make the best mojitos. This use to be a secret hideout for many celebrity who wanted to be away from the touristy crowds in La Habana vieja.
Address: Aguacate, La Habana, Cuba
Very cool underground bar on the rooftop of an apartment building. Everyone who works in the bar lives in the building. My personal favorite hangout spot.
THINGS TO DO
Callejon de Hamel
Afro-Cuban artist Salvador Gonzalez completely took over a full street with painting, sculptures, and murals of color religion.
Jose Fuster is called the Gaudi of Cuba. He began covering home with mosaics and slowly after 20 years took over the entire neighborhood of Jaimanitas.
Casa de Hemingway
Visit Ernest Hemingway's home turned into a museum where you can see his boat Pilar and visit his personal pest cemetery.
La Habana Vieja
Get lost in La Habana Vieja. Experience the culture, meet the people, and enjoy the colors and architure la habana vieja has to offer.
Mercado de Artesanía San José
Buy all your suvernees in this nic nacs in this open air market full of everything cuba has to offer.
My favorite thing to do in Havana is walk along the Malecón during sunset. Just do it.
My favorite art gallery on O'Reilly St. Great place to checkout local and international art.
Playa del Este
Some of you may not know but Havana doesn't have a beach the closest beach is outside of the city call Playa del Este.
Take a road trip Viñales. Beautiful seanery of tobacco feilds and mountains.
