O is for Opisbo Street

OOpisbo Street is a pedestrian-only thoroughfare in Vieja Havana. Lining the street is a collection of art galleries, souvenir shops and lots of restaurants and bars. Most of the bars have a band or some form of entertainment. Rum is the alcohol of choice served in a variety of ways – usually daiquiris and mojitos.

One of the most famous bars on this street is the Floridata, a favourite haunt of Ernest Hemingway and the “home of the daiquiri”.
