Beautifull place, very good music, nice ambience. In the centre of Madrid, very close to metro stations, easily to reach. Not much space floor to dance though and if you want to be sure , it's better to book in advance.

This is one of those hidden gems. If you enjoy good Cuban food, live Cuban Timba music, and friendly staff with local people, look no further. Stop by or call early for calendar of bands and to make reservations. Reservations is a must!! Soft music...More
