It’s 5 O’Clock Everywhere: Havana, Cuba

Havana is hot. Not just politically (President Obama's easing of trade and travel restrictions may have just hit a snag in the House) but literally. This past month brought record-breaking temperature spikes to Cuba's capital, prompting locals, expats, and tourists alike to cool down in bars both time-honored (La Bodeguita del Medio) and trendy (Espacios). We sent photographer Lisette Poole to capture the changing face of Cuba's burgeoning bar culture.
