The hotel and it’s bar is very famous, mostly for all of the famous people who have been there throughout the decades.

When I told my Grandma I was going to Cuba for Thanksgiving, she said, “Oh yeah, your Grandfather and I were in Cuba in the 1950s.” This was the first time I had ever heard of this. Even my Mom never knew about it. My Mom was only a baby then anyway and was being looked after by my great-grandmother in Florida. I asked my Grandma if she had photographs from then, but she could not recall if she did. So I promised her I would go around Cuba taking photographs of a photograph of my grandparents in the 1950s so she would finally have some photos in Cuba of her own. The wall behind me has all the famous people who were at the National Hotel the same time my Grandparents were there in the 50s.
