About

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 25 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”.

    Our Engagement Party at Havana was magical

    If you're reading reviews deciding whether or not to have your event at Havana 59.. the answer is to do it ! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to host our intimate engagement party. The best part is that it's a one stop shop everything from drinks , food and decor. Katherine the event coordinator was on top of it! Let me tell you. I am an event planner and at the end of the day I fully trust Katherine because I knew she knew exactly what I was visioning for my event and made it happen . I'm especially thankful for her patience, understanding and professionalism. The space is perfect for a small intimate feel, the food and drinks were so delicious. My guest especially loved the cigar bar on roof top. The only sad part is that it only happens once because I wish I could do it again ! Thank you Katherine and all the staff at Havana 59

    Unbelievably Exceptional Experience

    Katherine, the event coordinator, was absolutely amazing during the entire process. She was so friendly and knowledgeable, but most importantly incredibly responsive and so fun to work with. She was so flexible with us and helped to make our Big Day the ultimate dream. From helping us select the appropriate amount of food, to being flexible about our bar options, to being so responsible about the gift table, to helping coordinate and communicate with our DJ, to - most importantly - helping us feel so taken care of and celebrated, Katherine helped to craft our day and made it a moment we'll remember and cherish forever.

    I could not recommend Havana '59 for your event, or your wedding, more!

    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!
