Iconic Havana bar celebrates 70th birthday


The famous Bodeguita del Medio bar in Cuba is celebrating seven decades in business.

The Havana bar, owned by the government, has been frequented over the years by some big name writers, artists and politicians.

The Mojito cocktail is the star of the drinks menu.

It gained fame for being the favourite tipple of American writer Ernest Hemingway, who lived in Cuba for a while.

To mark its birthday, the bar has announced that it is planning to expand into Europe, spreading a taste of Cuba beyond its shores.
