In the heart of Downtown Durham's Entertainment District, located on the beautiful American Tobacco Campus, just minutes from the Durham Bulls Triple A Baseball Park and the Durham Performing Arts Center. Plenty of on-site covered parking. We provide a spirited swanky setting that propels you to tropical 1950s Cuba. Rat Pack was kicking. Beatles were rocking. Malcolm X and MLK were teaching. JFK was a President, not just an airport and Havana was about to explode. Years ago, we were told that to be successful in the restaurant industry, we couldn't mix politics with food. Well, so much for that advice. We offer great food, decor, inspired artwork and music specifically chosen to set the stage for a return to an era when challenging the norm was the norm. When JFK was a President not an airport. When universities were hotbeds of political dissent. When the Rat Pack, Bardot and Marilyn were center stage and the promise of revolutionary Cuba filled the air. We offer a spirited counter-culture environment reminiscent of a 1960s coffee house with the passion of a Latin beat offering our own version of what we call Revolution Fusion Cuisine. Our menu features homemade Cuban staples like Ropa Vie, Pressed Sandwiches and Pork Platters, award-winning tapas, combined with a touch of 60s Americana such as Red Square Velvet Cake all wrapped up in a swanky setting that propels you back in time. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by when you come in they welcome you with a big smile, the place looks great, the food is delicious but the waitress that took care of us was so so, she sat us at the very last corner of the restaurant very dark we went during the day, she took long time to bring a cut sandwich, the other people was half way done and i was waiting, ask for napkin and she forgot, ask for sugar she took long time for the cup refill we have to ask and at the end she kept my change and did not return to the table maybe by the way we look because we was walking and decide to eat there maybe she though that she wont get tips very sad to judge the people for the way they dress but is ok she was very helpful to the other table I did not even get her name all I knew is she was a twin because I talk to the wrong one Jun 30, 2014
