Welcome to Havana '59!
The string lights, crumbling plaster walls, palm trees, and aroma of cigars take you back in time to enjoy the tantalizing delights of a bygone era in Havana, Cuba.
Havana '59 has been a staple in Richmond's Shockoe Bottom District since its opening in 1995. We are proud of the community we have served for 22 years and the loyalty and longevity they have provided us, as demonstrated by our 2017 OpenTable Diner's Choice Award. We invite you to step back in time to the tradition of indulgence in 1950's Havana, when the island city was known as the "Paris of the Caribbean".

We had an amazing experience with Havana '59 and the coordinator, Jessica! We cannot say enough great things about Jessica. She was responsive, flexible, and so easy to work with. We had both our ceremony and reception there and she did a perfect job assisting us in achieving our vision. Our guests raved about the food, the bartenders and servers on staff were on-point and they all took care of every little detail. As bride and groom, we did not go unfed and even left at the end of the night with dozens of boxes of food, thanks to the incredible staff!! The value for the price you pay simply cannot be beat. They provided table covers, runners, and even centerpieces. We were so impressed with the attention to detail and quality of service we received. Everything about our wedding day came together exactly as we imagined!Sent on 04/13/2018

I cannot say enough great things about our wedding at Havana ‘59. From planning to the actual day, it was completely perfect! The space itself is gorgeous. You get the entire 2nd floor and 3rd floor open air patio for your event. There was no room rental fee, just a food and beverage minimum. Tip: minimums are lower in the “off season”. They provide tables, chairs, linens, and even have a good supply of table decor and runners which we used. The place is so beautiful you don’t need much additional decor. Food and beverage options are really flexible. We opted to host beer, wine and mojitos for our guests. The bar in the space is fully stocked so guests who wanted liquor could start their own tab if they wanted. The mojitos are THE BEST. All of the food was amazing too. Tres leches cake and mini key lime desserts highly recommended.
Jessica, the event coordinator, made the planning so easy. She was available any time I needed to chat with her and she was ultra accommodating and helpful with our multiple layouts.
We had our ceremony and reception at Havana. We had 30 guests and were very comfortable. It was cold and rainy on our wedding night so we didn’t utilize the covered outdoor area on the 2nd floor as much as we wanted during/after dinner, but it was the perfect setting for our ceremony. There are 2 heaters outside and plastic walls that come down to keep the space warm. The 2nd floor would accommodate twice as many guests or more if you are planning to use the entire space for dining tables. It was the perfect size for our ceremony and reception.
If you’re looking for a cozy, laid back and stress free wedding, do yourself a favor and check out Havana ‘59.Sent on 03/26/2018

This venue was the perfect choice! The best part was not having to do any set up or clean up. We just showed up and enjoyed ourselves. It was easy to plan and the food was phenomenal. You can do as a little or as much of the planning as you want too. All of our guests keep telling us how much fun they had and we couldn't have been more pleased.Sent on 11/20/2017
