An establishment that holds its location and ambience of dancing and enjoyment among its strong points with respect to other Havana nightclubs, since it would really pale by comparison in other aspects such as amenities it should also present, like a good dance floor, ideal air conditioning and excellence in its gastronomic offer. Nevertheless, it is obvious that its better values succeed in capturing the interest of foreign visitors, seeing as it is regularly among the most recommended sites at the prestigious traveler forum Tripadvisor. La Gruta is a discothèque/club situated in the Vedado district, in the area known as La Rampa: a busy main avenue of the city favored by Havana residents seeking nighttime entertainment. It lies in the basement level of an important Havana cinema so one needs to climb down a short flight of steps to enter its premises and gain access to one of its two spaces.
Because of its affordable prices in entrance fees and service in general, this place is very frequented by Cubans, which makes it appealing to tourists who come to Cuba looking to truly experience the way those native to the island enjoy dancing. Since it is a state run site there is a cover charge at nights to gain admittance (between 3 and 5 CUC it varies according to day of the week).
