It is located in Vedado, near the National Hotel and the Malecon. El Gato Tuerto is a historic bar that has retained all its character and charm.
According to the story, this was founded by one of the founders of the Bodeguita del Medio in 1960.
In principle it was the meeting place and gathering of the most bohemian intellectuals and artists of Havana. With the passage of time its clientele has changed and today, it is composed of a mix of tourists and Cubans.
Havana has local salsa, rumba, reggaeton … but there are also where jazz is the protagonist, and this is the case of the Tuerto Cat.
At the door you will see a guy with a suit and tie that will welcome us, once you pass through the revolving door you will be immersed in a pleasant atmosphere and different from most of Havana’s premises.
It is a small place, with a few small tables, a bar, a dim light, tobacco smell, walls covered with mirrors and a small stage where live music groups take place.
They also offer their gastronomy with affordable prices, such as their cream of meats with ham serrano for 3 CUC or the old clothes or the supreme of pork roasted to the criolla for about 5 CUC, or as a garnish rice pilaf for 1 CUC
One of the reasons to visit Gato Tuerto is its live music, especially from 11 pm, at which time some of the best bands and performers of the moment meet.
In the we can find public of all ages, tired of the discos and lovers of music with roots and traditional.
As it is a very popular and busy place, it is recommended to book early or go early.
