The Hemingway Trail

La Bodeguita del Medio

Hemingway loved his booze and as such he made La Bodeguita del Medio on Calle Empedrado #207, entre San Ignacio y Cuba, and El Floridita on Calle Obispo #557, esquina Bélgica Monserrate now infamous venues which are flocked to by visiting tourists. Due to the prices these are particularly under-patronized by local Cubans, and have become little more than photo shoots for the Mojito in hand brigade. Certainly, Hemingway would not have some of the more modern: Bar Monserrate on Avenida de Bélgica, #401, esquina Obrapía or Lluvia de Oro (golden Rain) on Calle Obispo #316, esquina Habana. All offer great atmosphere when a band plays and music is on.
