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 1 out of 5 by We received our drink order 30 min after we put it in. Then our waitress took another 30 min just to take our order. Once our food was ready it took one member of our group to approach the hostess to actually get it served to us by a different waitress. We asked for our checks immediately as we were running late by now to get to our show. The waitress took her time to get us our checks and then never came back to grab them. Another member of our group had to approach the hostess again who then came and ran our checks for us. It was a horrible 2 hours of waiting for cold food. Our group was bigger, but the service was pathetic!! Had the food been served on time it would have been much better! Oct 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good service. Great pork. Oct 20, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by overpriced, poor service, drinks wrong, liquor tastes watered down, $12 for a sandwich with no side is very pricey.not the first time we have experienced the same, not worth going back Oct 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by our order was not complicated yet it took a very long time for the entrees to arrive. The 'world's best' roast pork sandwich I ordered seemed to have lost the pork along the way. It was prepared far earlier than the other three entrees and left to sit somewhere. I know this because a waitress brought the sandwich to the table on its own, then took it back. Another 20 minutes, at least, passed before the entire table was served. Oct 5, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by We ordered two steak sandwiches, barely any meat on there,terrible! Oct 1, 2014
