Hemingway's two favorite watering holes in Havana, La Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio, still stand today, both more bustling than ever thanks to the famous writer.
On a small plaque hanging in La Floridita, hangs Hemingway's signed quote: "My mojito in the Bodeguita del Medio and my daiquiri in the Floridita"
La Bodeguita del Medio
La Bodeguita del Medio has the feel of the local crowd - a real bar, serving traditional cuban food. Located on Calle Empedrado just west of the cathedral in Old Havana, this building and its interior is covered in graffiti - much of it saluting Hemingway and Cuba.
Address: Calle Empedrado No. 206. Old Havana
More upscale than La Bodeguita del Medio yet authentically Cuban nonetheless, La Floridita is home to Hemingway's favorite daquiry - proclaiming it the best in the world.
Today, the place is very popular with tourists. Hemingway's bar stool has a velvet rope to keep the crowds at bay. A statue of the writer stands nearby.
Address: Obispo No.557 esq. Monserrate, Old Havana
