Overviewing the lobby of the Sheraton Shenzhen Hotel in Futian, Havana Bar provides an eclectic atmosphere for enjoying cocktails and cigars above the five-star hotel’s swirl of guests below. The multi-room bar offers several lounge areas with deep chairs, plush couches and soft pillows, along with a stage where a Filipino duet and guitarist play nightly.

The band performs popular English and Chinese hits, soft melodies and, upon request, energetic karaoke with patrons.

Patrons wanting to puff a stogie while taking in the scene have high-end Cuban options. The Havana’s cigar menu is subject to change and offers frequent specials, but sample selections include Cohiba’s 6-inch Corona Especiales (338RMB), touting spicy flavors with an “earthy, chocolate finish;” the 6.1-inch Monte Cristo No. 2 (288RMB), a torpedo with cinnamon tastes; and the 5.5-inch Romeo y Julieta No. 1 Tubos (148RMB), a lighter option.

Most simple cocktails cost about 70RMB at Havana. Dry martinis cost 52RMB. Also available are sherries and ports, such as Taylor’s 10-year Tawny Port for 88RMB per glass or 980RMB per bottle.

Small food plates include vegetable samosas with mint chutney, homemade spring rolls with Thai dipping sauce and deep-fried fish goujons with Creole tartar sauce, each for 48RMB). Havana also offers pizzas (78 to 138RMB), entrees such as a steak and mushroom pie (118RMB), and a selection of burgers with fries, including a plate of three mini-burgers (98RMB).

Every third Friday of the month is ladies night at Havana, with free drinks for women and some half-price drinks for men. A billiards competition is every fourth Friday, also featuring 50 percent off select drinks.

Havana Bar and the Shenzhen Sheraton are found in Futian’s Central Business District, between Civic Center and the Exhibition and Convention Center, with short walks to Central Walk shopping center and the Coco Park mall and entertainment district.

Exit A1 of the metro’s Exhibition and Convention Center stop, on the green, Luobao line, takes metro riders into the Sheraton.

Blah (still-will)
Over-sized velvet seats, generic Filipino band singing over canned percussion, expensive drinks, empty except for a few tables of traveling business men, great view of the lobby. Just when you think it can't get any better, the table next to you gets up and starts belting out karaoke duets with the Filipino girls.
