Description: La Bodeguita del Medio was founded in Cuba in the 1940s as a corner store owned by Angel Martinez. The store became a meeting place for local artists who enjoyed getting together for an afternoon 'Mojito' a drink created by Angel. The store developled over time into a small restaurant with dishes served by Angel's wife and from that into what it is today...an icon of old Havana. A place that has preserved the ambiance of the romantic Carribean lifestyle that flourished with Havana. Today the Bodeguita del Medio is famous world wide for Salsa music,fine cigars, its original Mojitos and having guests write their thoughts and comments on the walls of the restaurant just as the original artists did in Angel Martinez's first store. For cigar oficionados: we are one of the only authorized suppliers of authentic Cuban Cigars in Mexico. History is nice... but at the end its about having fun.. La Bodeguita is a great place to eat, drink and dance to live music... See you soon...
