Looking for a fun spot to spend a night in the city? This Cuban hangout is the ultimate triple threat. They’ve got tasty grub, creative cocktails and entertaining comedy for an epic night out with your friends.

Havana Vancouver recently got a face lift and a whole new team behind it. It’s now powered by the same team who brought Belgard Kitchen, Vancouver Urban Winery and Postmark Brewing to life. But don’t worry, they’ve kept the iconic wall untouched to keep the magic alive.

Craving brunch? Try their Cubano Completo Skillet with braised white beans, Postmark IPA chorizo, poached eggs, tostones and charred poblano cream sauce served with Cuban fry bread. They even whip up a play on avocado toast with these amazing Avocado Tostones which have cotija cheese and pico de gallo.

Sip on a variety of cocktails like their signature Cuban Old Fashioned, Mojito, Sangria and much more. Mix it up a bit with their Cafe Bombon Baracha, a drunken coffee made with sweetened condensed milk and rum.

What people may not know is the space is also home to a 60-seat theatre where independent productions and performers can showcase their talents and entertain the crowd.
