THE EXPERIENTIAL ROOMS: We're recreating actual venues in Cuba to allow us all to experience a bit of Cuba here in Seattle:
THE TROPICANA CLUB — We'll bring the world-renowned cabaret and club in Havana to life! Lots of lights and palm trees, showgirls and amazing music (and maybe a few mobsters). The band, SuperSones, will be playing traditional Cuban Son music (the roots of Salsa). There will be conga drum performances, dacners and Showgirls (voluptuous, cabaret sequin-and-feather musical theater!!). DJ Reinier will be spinning Cuban and other Latin dance music in between sets by the band. GET READY TO DANCE!
*EL FLORDITA BAR — Ernest Hemingway lived in Cuba for 20 years, and was the inspiration for the Hemingway Daiquiri (half the sugar and double the booze!) Daiquiri's will be served in the El Flordita Bar — which will be decorated like the inside of the actual bar in Havana — and we'll throw in some world globes; overstuffed leather chairs and lots of books!
*LA BODEGUITA DEL MEDIO — Another of Hemingway's favorite haunts in Cuba; this is where he drank mojitos! which will be served only in this bar. We'll decorate it like the actual bar in Cuba.
....and we'll have an Ernest Hemingway look-alikeciga hanging around for photo ops and fun. (There is a bronze statue of Ernest in the El Floridita bar, so....look for our bronzed Ernie!)
*DJ spinning Cuban and Latin dance tunes — get ready to dance!!!
*OUTDOOR LOUNGE with music and congo drum performances throughout the night. Lounge furniture under tents, under the stars....warm summer breezes.
