Descripción general del barrio
Vedado is one of the most important neighborhoods in Havana, and probably the most desirable location for living right now in the city. As it is the center of the nightlife and other cultural attractions, it attracts a lot of people (Cubans and foreigners) that gather around the several core areas. It's a very interesting place, as the space is shared by early last century mansions, elegant buildings from the '50s, modern/overcrowded family houses (some time as the result of the split/modification of former fancy mansions) and the growing private small business sector. As in the rest of the city, the violence doesn't exist and you can freely walk around at any time of the day or night. You can find in the ground floor of the building a very convenient SPAR grocery, and very close, vegetables, fruits and meet market, pizza place (Ring Pizza, one block close), bakeries, bars, restaurants, banks and access to WIFI Internet at several close areas. You should go across the building street to a local vegetable and fruits markets and ask for a sugar cane juice (locally called guarapo), very fresh and tasty! The neighborhood is also very convenient for reaching other important areas of the city in a moment (like Habana Vieja or Miramar), as there are several routes of taxis and public transportation very close to the apartment.
You have very nice restaurants, bars, disco-bars, grocery stores, bakeries, parking areas and gas stations around. Just 2-5 minutes close walking, some even closer. A couple of really great restaurants are El Cocinero and Rio Mar, those have become some of the most famous in Havana. A must-try place two blocks from the apartment and located beside El Cocinero, is the Factory of Art (la Fabrica de Arte): this is the most important place of the Cuban night scene, with several activities taking place at the same time, disco, theater, art gallery, and a great band playing, and a lot of Cuban and foreigners gather there so it´s also a great place for meeting people. Also, in other areas of Vedado (5 minutes close with a cab) you can find some other great places such as Esencia Bar, Corner Café (some good bands usually play here), Sarao nightclub, and 1830 Restaurant (always offering salsa parties every Sunday). For jazz lovers, the Jazz Cafe at Galerías Paseo Commercial Center is also a nice place for going at night. Regarding the theaters, you can reach places such as El Ciervo Encantado, Trianón, Raquel Revuelta, and Mella, and the Berthold Brecht Theater (also great for rock and fusion concerts in the basement stage!). Some other interesting places are Plaza de la Revolución (museum and mirador), the University of Havana and the Malecon. The apartment is also 10 minutes close in a car from Cira Garcia Clinic, the most important Cuban hospital oriented to medical tourism. Taxis are available often in the parking area of El Cocinero restaurant, and both at Linea and 23rd streets. If you walk 2-4 blocks, you will also reach the local bus stops that connects Vedado with Miramar or Habana Vieja (both are in opposite directions!). Though you can hire a cab just for yourself, you can reach these neighborhoods also taking the cheap shared cabs (learn how nationals move around, and take the "almendrones" [shared taxis] that will take you to other places for prices as cheap as 1 USD or half USD per person!).
