Havana Social is a hidden jewel amongst the many bars and clubs on the busy Sukhumvit Soi 11 Road in the center of Bangkok. This Cuban themed bar is a break away from Thai culture and the standard bar design and decoration norms.

Entering the bar feels like you are going back in time. All you can see is a dimly lit fluorescent light saying “Telefono” on a telephone booth when you walk down the small alley to the venue.

Receiving permission to enter the premises starts with the doorman who gives the secret code that opens the doors after you have inserted the code in the telephone. Now the fun can begin.

The lighting inside is low key. The mood and feeling are traditional Cuban style. Impressive rums and spirits that you would only find in an authentic Cuban bar are being served from the Havana bar.

The DJ and the occasional live band perform swinging Latin sounds and on the dance floor, it is always moving.

Small cozy seating areas and sofas are there to sip from your drinks or rest your feet from dancing.

This is a fun little spot for someone looking for something different and lively.
