La Habana Elegante es una revista académica y de creación artística y literaria. Su Consejo Editorial tiene como propósito afianzar el prestigio de que ya goza esta publicación a partir de criterios de selección rigurosa, basada en la calidad, originalidad, creatividad y aportes de los trabajos que publiquemos. Aunque La Habana Elegante surgió como revista de literatura y cultura cubana, a partir del número correspondiente a septiembre de 2009 su perfil se extenderá a no solamente Cuba, sino también al Caribe y América Latina, los estudios trasatlánticos, así como a problemas de estética en general. La revista mantendrá asimismo un espacio dedicado al fin-de-siècle hispanoamericano.
