If you like Buena Vista Social Club, you have to come here. Even though most of the original members had passed away, the spirit and soul are still here, alive!
It's a very big venue, they host big tour groups, for dinner and show. We stopped by in the early afternoon, wanted to get tickets for that night. They told us, it's sold out. But they could put extra two high chairs at the end of the bar.
Okay. We paid USD$35 each, it came with one or two drinks. We didn't want the meal here.
We came by at 9 pm, show starts at 9:30 pm. It was packed. We saw our seats were taken, my boyfriend was upset. I knew they will figure something out. Sure enough, now we had to sit inside the bar at front (the only place they could squeeze couple bar chairs in) which is much better, very close to the stage, great!!
Even better, this beautiful friendly woman sitting on the other side of the bar from us turned out to be the manager of the band, she sings with them too.
Wish I could speak Spanish better to talk to her.
Those old guys put out incredible great show! The youngest member is 79 and oldest one is 84 now. They could still sing and dance perfectly well and have fun. It's so powerful and beautiful to see them perform. It's the most unforgettable evening in Havana!
