Opened in 2013, the Dubai branch of Cafe Habana is located in Al Bahar Souk, and is the fourth venue of the international brand which started in New York. The menus tempt diners with a selection of Cuban-Mexican culinary classics alongside a range of beverages, served in a lounge-style interior featuring velvety sofas and a mosaic floor. DJs play latino, old skool and party anthems throughout the week to keep the atmosphere lively. The original Cafe Habana was created in 1998 in an old-school Dominican Diner, inspired by a storied Mexico City lunch eatery which, legend has it, played a part in the Cuban Revolution.
