Rising next to the ocean in western Vedado, the 16-storey Riviera looks like something out of 1950s Las Vegas or Miami, an airbrushed postcard taking one back to a very different time and world. Stylishly modernist, the building’s 50s look (and feel) carries past the revolving door entrance over to the grand lobby, whose original structure, furnishings and décor have been so well preserved that one wholly expects to come across a group of velvet-clad lounge lizards savoring mojitos and Cuban cigars or a group of mafiosos talking shop on one of the old-fashioned sofas.

A bit over 50 years ago, such an encounter might not have been rare: the hotel was established by mobster Meyer Lanski in 1956, and the property’s short-lived immersion in the world of mafia transactions and gambling is well-documented (the curious spherical structure next to the main edifice, painted in vibrant hues, was once a casino, acoustically designed to take the sound of chips and slot machines into the hotel and seduce guests).

Thanks to the ingenious building design, all guestrooms have views of the Atlantic, taking full advantage of the splendid location: at the north end of Paseo, right on Malecón, a short distance away from Vedado’s entertainment offer and an insignificant cab ride away from Old Havana.

The hotel has a fairly ample food and drinks and entertainment offer. The spacious lobby bar is set next to a row of large glass panels that place one almost literally next to the water, and the Mirador de la Habana restaurant has very nice views of the littoral and city. Reportedly one of Havana’s better nightclubs, the Copa Room Cabaret is the stage for a Tropicana-like show and operates as a disco into the early morning.

Guestrooms, visibly built with comfort in mind, have space aplenty.

Other attractive features at the Riviera include an outdoor swimming pool (with the original, three-level diving platform), a beauty salon, shops, a humidor and free parking outside. Traveling businesspeople or anyone organizing an event or conference also have many options in terms of meeting spaces, including the former casino, today a conference hall equipped with its own bar and stage. A less publicized detail is the modern artwork that graces the lobby and entrance to the hotel, which includes pieces by renowned Cuban sculptor Florencio Gelabert – a fact that could prove of interest to anyone with an eye for modernist art.

Chic, comfortable and tinged by a nostalgic air, the Riviera is a well-located option in the Vedado area.

Food Facilities

L’ Aiglon Restaurant: The perfect choice for exquisite Cuban and international food in an upscale but accessible restaurant. Conservation of original decoration including silverware, furniture, candelabras, and beautiful ceiling lamps, all straight from the 50’s. The filet mignon is terrific, served with bread slices bathed in special sauce. Also divine are the lobster platter or Santiago shrimp, unique to this eating place

Primavera buffet restaurant: A varied theme menu alternating every day between Mexican, Cuban, Italian, Spanish and international

Habana Mirador restaurant: A breakfast buffet in the morning for those on the Royal Floor, it also opens to the public for a la carte lunch and dinner. Has a splendid outdoor terrace with an incredible view of the city.  Al Fresco cafeteria: Open 24 hours, offering pizza and sandwich specials and ice cream made on the premises

Bars

Piano Mar: One of the most special places in the Riviera, with comfortable chairs and seaside view, with a level of relaxation like few others. Open 24 hours with 50’s music, alternating between bolero and son music

Elegante Bar: Next to the L’ Aiglon restaurant, one of the most elegant in Havana. Open 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. for drinks and recorded music

Copa Room Cabaret: An authentic Cuban fiesta, with crowing roosters, the aroma of tobacco, undulating hips and stomping sandals. A true stroll through Cuban culture and its African-Cuban roots
