WESTERN WORLD MEETS SOCIALISM OR FLIRTING IN CUBA
After such an amazing night I definitely needed to do that again. This time I did convince one of my travel companions to join. Also, my new best friend, guesthouse owner Aleido told me he will arrange an amazing night out for me.
He got two Cuban lesbians to take us to the best club in Havana, two more girls (also, from Suriname as my friend Juan from previous post) joined us too. We got into a huge taxi and were driving for what seemed like forever till we reached this huge factory building - the club / art space called FABRICA DE ARTE CUBANO.
Obviously we had to pay for the taxi, Surinam girls paid cover for Cuban girls, locals also asked us to buy the drinks. I did hate that part. But that place was absolutely amazing! Thank god we dressed up well as this was one of the best art space / club I’ve ever been to! I totally felt like I was in Germany or The Netherlands. Amazing art, great cocktails, a couple of dance floors and a stylish crowd. The only drawback was that this place was not gay at all. You know that feeling when you go to a classy place in western Europe and you know there are plenty of gays here, but nobody interacts. Besides that, definitely a must place to go in Havana!
My only advice would be just don’t stay too long here - leave your lesbian friends and get to some gay bar. Which was exactly what we did! We took a taxi to the bar basically on Malecon (seafront) - MYXTO.
The club / bar looks basic from outside, but is pretty modern inside. Nice cocktails, luxury (for Cuba) interior. We were rather late - managed to see just the end of the drag show which it is famously known for. Strangely nobody danced, all the boys were sitting and looking around.
By that time we were pretty drunk, so super brave to make eye contacts with boys around us. I’m not gonna lie - that’s the bar where I made the strongest eye contact. At one moment, I was flirting with 5 boys at once. By flirting at this place I don’t mean ‘hey you’re cute’, I was getting back more like ‘hot! let’s f#ck!”. Some of them started moving closer, had some chats etc. One actually spoke English!
It was definitely an interesting experience. My friend and I finished the night walking back downtown on Malecon. All the travel guides will tell you - don’t walk on Malecon at night, it’s dangerous! Well it was an amazing walk by the sea while looking at beautiful, nearly dilapidated buildings and reminiscing about the fun night we just had.
