Better than the Casa de la Musica downstairs, Diablo Tun Tun offers a kickass (and packed) party every Thursday from 7-9. Get there by 6 to get a decent spot. The music is always fun and the crowd is mostly Cuban regulars.
Drinks are cheap, too–we recommend buying a bottle of rum for 5 CUC and a few cans of soda and sharing among friends, whether old or, after rubbing elbows and sharing shots, the new ones you’ll inevitably make.
Calle 35 and 20, Miramar (around the side of the Casa de la Musica, to the left. Take the stairs up)
7-9pm on Thursdays, get there at 6
