This is the gold standard for cigar bars. Cool tunes, delicious cocktails and a killer assortment of stogies. Great vibe inside, reminiscent of old Havana. As always, service is top notch...attentive, but not intrusive.

Great service and great cocktails, a good place to stop for an evening drink, nice level of background music so you can still hold a private conversation

I was able to stop in a few times while staying at the hotel after coming back from a long day moving around Abu Dhabi. The atmosphere is pleasingly dark and tucked away like a favorite corner lounge.

The Havana Club in the Emirates Palace is a real treat. The selection of cigars is very good. Live entertainment most nights and if there is a football match being broadcast you can be sure that it will be on. My only comment for improvement is the selection of American Bourbon is very limited. I don't think this is specific... More

I love this place. With a steady stream of visitors coming to see us in Abu Dhabi, the Palace and a drink in the Havana is always on the agenda. Authentic decor, impeccable service by white coated waiters and the prices for drinks are very much in line with other hotels (unless of course you want to pay $1000 for... More

Great lounge with excellent singers who really add to the charm of the Latin theme. The staff are faultlessly attentive without being intrusive and the drinks menu is extensive and interesting. The perfect place for an after dinner drink with a good atmosphere

The decor and ambience at Havana Club was consistent with others I have visited. I went for drinks and had two of the Between the Sheets cocktails. There was live music, which was very entertaining. The cigar and drink selections were impressive; however the waiter(s) were not very observant and we often found ourselves waiting for ridiculous amounts of time... More

Great bar with spectacular service, you must try the rose petal martini, it's a bomb! The evening entertainment and food is also good.

My wife and I finally made it to Havana Club and could not have been happier. The service and knowledge of Athul John was better than any cigar bar I've visited in the U.S., Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The selection of rare Kentucky bourbons is the most diverse in the all of the Emirates (Basil Hayden, Booker's, etc.), and the... More
