Havana Sights

Union Nacional de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba (UNEAC)

  • Calle 17 y Calle H
  • Vedado
  • Arts/Performance Venue

Fodor's Review

Occupying what was once the Casa Juan Gelats, one of Vedado's finest early 20th-century mansions, the National Union of Writers and Artists is the site of cinematic events; lectures and prose and poetry readings; and, on Wednesday (4 pm–8 pm) and Saturday (between 9 am–2 pm), Afro-Cuban and folkloric performances. Have a seat at the bar with a Cuba Libre, and you are likely to end up chatting with some of the creative types that appear here. Writers, filmmakers, artists gather here as their union offices are in the building. The building across Calle H from this one is an important UNEAC annex.
