Fábrica de Arte Cubano

Havana, Cuba

While many visitors to Cuba’s capital might gravitate to the candy-colored buildings and classic cars of Old Havana, it’s worth a trip to the city’s Vedado neighborhood to see Fábrica de Arte Cubano. Created by Cuban rocker X Alfonso in 2014, the cooking-oil factory turned community project has quickly become the city’s buzzy creative hub. Within the cavernous warehouse’s refurbished walls, you’ll find galleries, performance-art spaces and a dance floor that’s home to the capital’s most captivating movers and shakers. As Havana prepares to celebrate its 500th anniversary this year, look to Fábrica to see its cultural future. —Cady Lang
