Fábrica de Arte Cubano (Cuban Art Factory) or Fábrica, as it is popularly known, is, since its opening years ago, one of the most seductive and revealing cultural proposals of the Cuban capital, not to say the most. Travel guides such as Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet have classified Fábrica as Havana's #1 attraction.
Music, movies, theater, dance, literature, painting, photography, graphic & industrial design, architecture and fashion meet harmoniously in the rooms of this former oil factory, rescued by the Cuban musician and audiovisual artist X Alfonso, and then reconverted into multicultural center.
Such is the fame and popularity reached by FAC, that celebrities like Mick Jagger, Michelle Obama, Katy Perry, Bon Jovi, Sting, Billy Gibbons and Emily Ratajkowski couldn't resist to visit and experience the modern, cheerful and interactive environment of this superb place.
With a Bauhaus and environmental aesthetics, Fábrica is the perfect place to attend concerts of almost any musical genre, good movies, documentaries, theater plays, performances and exhibits, while enjoying nice drinks and tapas in the company of friends.
FAC opens Wednesdays to teenagers up to 17, who can have fun in a free-alcohol environment.
Admission: 50.00 Cuban pesos.
