Geo's will also serve Cafe Cubana (Cuban Espresso) and sweets. (These are an additional cost, not included in your ticket.)
*One drink ticket (Daiquiri, Mojito, Wine & Bubbly, Beer)
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.
THE BAND SuperSones, will be playing traditional Cuban Son music (the roots of Salsa). Showgirls (voluptuous, cabaret sequin-and-feather musical theater!!) and more. A DJ wil be spinning Cuban, Latin and curent pop hits when the band is not performing.
EXPERIENTIAL ROOM: Ernest Hemingway lived in Cuba for 20 years, and was the inspiration for the Hemingway Daiquiri (half the sugar and double the booze!). He had two favorite bars he'd always visit and we'll recreate them at Havana Nights:
*El Floridita: Daiquiri's will only be served in this lounge — world globes; overstuffed leather chairs and boks. We're working on getting an Ernest Hemingway look-alike (there's a bronze statue of Ernest in the El Floridita Bar!)
*La Bodeguita: This is where Ernest would order mojitos, and we'll serve them in this bar.
We're hiring an artist to sketch the insides of both bars and hang backdrops to make it look authentic
*Mini Marketplace — Similar to an outdoor street market, there will be both Cuban and American items for sale including Cuban art, (purchased in Cuba), clothing and jewelry.
*Dominoes tables; play Dominoes with old Cuban guys and your friends!
*Classic Car Show: there will be several classic American cars from the 1950's & 60's — like the ones you'd see in Havana — on display.
*********DRESS CODE: Fabulous!
