La Bodeguita del Medio



This painting represents Cuban nostalgia, its beautiful old streets and the famous bar “La Bodeguita del Medio” shining in the old street of San Ignacio. El Malecón de la Habana and the magnificent XVIII Century stained glass artwork so typical of Cuban colonial times called “vitrales” crowning the windows of the mansion of Count Bayona. A woman dressed for the carnival celebrations, dressed in the yellow tones that revere the sacred Virgen de la Caridad and the countryside view of palms trees and flowers.

If your looking for a good mojito you can’t miss visiting La Bodeguita de Medio in Old Havana.  Its most famous patron was Ernest Hemingway. A 1940s grocery store turned restaurant, signatures on the wall include distinguished customers like Pablo Neruda, Nat King Cole, Fidel Castro, Agustín Lara, Brigitte Bardot, Salvador Allende and, of course, Ernest Hemingway.  This bar located right off of Cathedral Square is also a good spot to hear the traditional sounds of Cuban music.
