Very authentic spot. It's not only made for tourists, but also for Cubans. There are supposed to be small shows of traditional son by either a young or an elder professional couple, which are both very good. The music is mostly the same on all...More

A place where you can feel the real Carribean atmosphere: dance, music and nice people. Despite the terrible toilet and the long waiting for the coctails, this is THE place :)

Until you see it, you won't believe it. A first floor apartment in a rundown suburb has been converted into one of the best (and certainly the most interesting) music venues in Santiago. You pay 2 CUCs entrance before you climb the stairs and drinks...More
