CARTAGENA | Cuba 1940 is a bar in Cartagena’s historic centre that aims to recreate the feel of the bars of Havana circa 1940. The atmosphere is cool and casual, with brick, concrete and timber used in harmony to create a space that fits the theme. Photos of Cuban jazz musicians and singer from years gone by line the walls, and hints at a greater music focus. Every night there’s a band playing live Caribbean jazz and salsa, set up behind the venue’s indoor (but open air) pool, which you can dip your toes in and even swim in. It all combines for a bar with real character. When the band isn’t playing, similar music plays through the sound system.

For drinks there’s of course mojitos – traditional and with a twist, along with Daiquiris, Cubanitos, and Cuba Libres. There’s an extensive selection of rum behind the bar, and upstairs, a temperature controlled cabinet full of cigars, which you can smoke inside the bar.

For food its a selection of tapas style dishes like tostones con mojo (plantain fritters with green tomato and lime dipping sauce), pio pio vaca frito (fried shredded chicken and sweet plantains) and empanadas.

After a day of exploring Cartagena, an evening at Cuba 1940 is a great way to finish things. Sipping on rum, smoking a cigar, feet in the pool, listening to live Cuban music. Perfect.
