Cocktail Bar
$$$
“As the evening arrives, after your dinner, visit Varadero in the soul spot of Bol. Varadero is a night cocktail bar with a long tradition for a reason. Easy-listening house music, friendly, but yet, professional staff and relaxed atmosphere is the simple Varadero formula. When the evening gets young, until 2:00 am, this is the place to seek for your night-out warmup!”

“This pretty terrace right above the Riva is where locals go for a good traditional meal. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the vitalac (spit-roasted lamb offal) or call ahead to order the delicious lamb or octopus under peka (domed baking lid).”
