    This is as close as it gets to Havana's Tropicana, the swanky, pre-Castro supper club where "Babalu" was born.

    Chicken churrasco is my favorite. Get in before 8PM and you can stay for the club portion of the evening at no extra charge (or ID check) Read more

    This is as close as it gets to Havana's Tropicana, the supper club where "Babalu" was born. From salsa to Top 40 music on weekends, it has lots of Cuban foods & lots of Cubans period. Great nightlife

  • Shelia G.

    Try the mariquitas con mojo, have a big drink and stay for dancing after dinner. Great place and great service.

    Shelia Gasson · April 16, 2011
  • Juan G.

    Location, location, location!” the old real estate adage advises. And indeed, this huge Cuban resto-lounge’s location on Biscayne Bay---attached to American Airlines Arena, between Miami’s cruise ship

    A great restaurant and nightclub in the heart of Downtown Miami. Dance the night away! It’s especially caliente after catching the Miami Heat basketball team in action
