Fábrica de Arte Cubano – the Cuban Art Factory
Most fascinating. Everything in one establishment for a night of culture: art, jazz, theatre and nightclub, at Fábrica de Arte Cubano (F.A.C.) – the Cuban Art Factory. Fábrica de Arte Cubano is to be found at Calle 23 esquina 11 in Vedado near the Puente de Hierro – Iron Bridge.
Long ago, the Fábrica de Arte Cubano was an olive oil factory in the former El Cocinero. Cuban musician X Alfonso renovated the place, opening its doors to the public on February 13, 2014.
Entrance fee is $2.00 local currency, open Thursday to Sunday, from 8 pm to 4:00 am. On Sundays, Fábrica de Arte Cubano closes at 2:00 am. Pay the entrance fee and receive a card. Drinks and snacks consumed are stamped on the card. Pay your bill upon leaving the Club.
Art is everything united in one place: art gallery, nightclub, theatre, jazz, contemporary dance, live music performances, fashion shows, photography, plastic art exhibits and cinema.
Cuban Art factory owner X Alfonso describes the art factory as:
“… a cultural center to display art in all its manifestations. Our intention is to promote the exchange and enriching interaction between the public and the creators.”
“The project is designed mainly for university people and also for anyone who can not access these new points-mostly bars and restaurants- that have opened in Havana and that exceed the actual monetary possibilities of many people.”
