Catering from Ocho

Led by Chef Kirk, Ocho can create a special event menu rooted in the hotel’s pan Latin cultural influences from Mexico, Cuba, and Texas. Cocktails can highlight the tequila of Hotel Havana’s San Antonio roots with the rum of its Cuban namesake, with a love for old school recipes and, when the occasion calls, the simple satisfaction of an ice-cold Michelada.

Some events at Hotel Havana require a site fee and guest room reservations depending on the size of the event.
