Havana secret spot: La Guarida.

Havana, Cuba

SHOP MY LOOK:

 

La Guarida on Concordia Street is one of the most beautiful and famous places in Havana, thanks to the Cuban movie Fresa y Chocolate. The building itself used to be a palace, but now it is the home to many locals on the first few floors and the best restaurant in town on the top floor. The prices are around $15 to $20 for a main course, and be sure to keep room for dessert. My tip is to try the guava mousse. It’s unlike anything I’ve had before!

When preparing for my trip to Cuba, I decided nothing would be better to wear than Alice Temperley’s S/S16 collection, which is actually inspired by Havana! So I filled my suitcase with a few colourful dresses, tops, and skirts, all with slits and an open chest. They worked quite perfectly with the heat and the surroundings, especially among the ruined mansion that now hosts the establishment that is the city’s La Guarida.

La Guarida is most certainly one of the most impressive colonial buildings you’ll ever see. It is an absolute masterpiece and sadly run-down…
