The original Casa de la Musica the Buena Vista Social Club emerged from I believe!(?). Casual, historic, traditional and always looked busy throughout the day.

This was the highlight of our tour. A fabulous night of Cuban music and dancing. The locals are truly marvellous and encourage visitors to get up and have a go with helpful instruction. We enjoyed good company, good drinks and brilliant service, though the toileting arrangements would need overhauled. But, heck, you are in Cuba after all!!!

This place, located on Calle Mariano corona, no. 564, just one block to the west of Parque Cespedes (at Aguilera) , is definitely one of the top nightlife spots frequented by the “with it” crowd of Santiagueros. It features a mixture of live and taped music, with salsa and reggaeton. The Boisterous crowds. This is a good place for the... More
