I was here with friends last weekend and we had a ball of a time! There was a band playing downstairs and they were fantastic, any request and it was on. The place was packed - great atmosphere. Good drinks menu. The queue to Havana browns was ridiculous though!

This is a terrible spot! Over crowded always! Too small! Expensive to hell! 10€ to get in! Bouncers are complete clowns and are power trippers! Not a clue how to deal with people.if yu like people bumping off ya yu will love this place.

Without any reservation we ended at the second floor of Cork's most popular club. It was my first time there and i was expected something better. Long queue first to go inside and then the place was packed. Nice atmospere overall. I hope next time to see the other floors as well.

Went here on a hen night on a Saturday night. We had a private area in the Hidden Attic section. Contrary to other reviews on here, the bouncers and staff were brilliant, very friendly and accommodating. The decor here is brilliantly quirky, and they made a real effort for us. The music was varied, quite a lot of R&B/hip hop... More

Probably Cork's most popular nightclub but you rarely come away from the place saying "Havanas was rocking last night". Its more of a meeting place for the 20-26 age group of GAA playing folk of Cork than anything else. Friday and Saturday nights are particularly poor considering the price you pay to get in, generally €10 plus. Much better places... More

I was going with my boyfriend to have a bit of fun in Havanas on Saturday night, but one really rude and ignorant bouncer who feels like God himself left us outside with the words "you're drunk".. Even we had just one drink.. I felt so discriminated and upset.. Never would go there again ..and wouldn't recommend anybody to go..... More

I love Havanas, its probably the best club in Cork second only to The Voodoo Rooms. Its a nice decent, respectable crowd, and its always busy. Also open 7 nights unlike most places in Cork! Its only negative point would be (imo) that the bouncers aren't very nice. I sometimes joke that its easier to get through USA emigration than... More
