About Havana

Havana Vancouver is inspired by the flavours, colours, and culture of Old Havana, Cuba.

When it comes to the experience, guests can expect a hybrid of authentic Cuban flavours combined with Pacific Northwest style and a commitment to local suppliers. Bright, fresh, fun tastes unique to the location.

The space is vibrant and energetic, filled with the sounds of people connecting and storytelling, moved by the music. Whether you’re on a date or with a large group, Havana has the perfect spot for you. The patio is an iconic Commercial Drive hangout, draped with all day sunshine, the ideal spot to sip mojitos and sangria and create memories.
