“Moscow” moves: will they build a hotel in an old restaurant in Havana?

The unusual movement in the former Moscow restaurant, located on Calle P between Humboldt and 23 in Vedado, has aroused the curiosity of Internet users on social networks these days.

According to the signs of the work along P Street, the space will host a tourist facility in the future, as it reads “Hotel under Construction”.

Until that central space of La Rampa habanera, the Cuban News Agency arrived to check the status of the actions that are carried out there.

Jorge Luis Rodríguez, an investor in the project, explained that they are concluding the technical preparation stage to undertake the demolition of the property.

The process of dismantling the building will take five months and is expected to start this February.

The investor reminded ACN that the Moscow restaurant, a place that left its mark on those who visited it due to its decoration, gastronomic offer and service, was devastated by a fire in 1989.

What some may not know is that the building housed the Cabaret Montmartre, considered the most French of the cabaret-casinos of the largest of the Antilles in the 40s and 50s of the last century.

The journalist and writer Ciro Bianchi, in his article Lost History of the Sans Soucihighlighted that in the mid-1950s, the American mobster Meyer Lansky, known for his business dealings with the dictator Fulgencio Batista, became the majority owner of the famous nightclub located in La Rampa.

International artists such as Edith Piaf and Lola Flores passed through its room, and in 1947 Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner visited it as part of their honeymoon.

The recovery of the property will return all its splendor to an emblematic space of the Vedado capital.
