We experienced this hidden gem while in Santiago de Cuba and loved the authenticity of this musical experience, off the beaten path and well worth the visit!! Seeing the locals dancing salsa to their Latin beats while we sat back and sipped out mohitos created an unforgettable memory! Be sure to check it out!

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. Probably busier in the evenings and still have locally famous acts on but also earlier in the day there is live music, groups of Cuban singers entertaining in the "son" style and locals and tourists...

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!!!

I was pretty tired when my partner dragged me in here and totally wanted to go home. I'm so glad she dragged me in. Entrance was reasonable considering it included some drinks, and the music was just so good. The band we saw had just been nominated for a Latin Grammy award and did not disappoint. Complex tunes delivered with... More

Less touristy than Casa de Trova and harder, faster Timba and funk/reaggeaton rather then the mor traditional Son. Where told we where lucky because the band were one of Cubas most famous and inventive playing that night. Made for a great night out, we had a wonderful experience, the best during our 2 weeks travelling all over Cuba. Friendly people... More

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
