Cubana has venues in Claremont, Stellenbosch and Tableview, but the one that tends to have the best buzz about it is situated on Somerset Road in Green Point. With its smart casual dress code, the focus of this restaurant and club is to be a fully functional social club. Footballers and actors have been known to frequent this establishment for its authentic Cuban cigars and exotic cocktails, while the music is known to span multiple genres from Latin and salsa to hip hop and commercial music in the evenings. Dress code during the day is relaxed, but as soon as the sun goes down it becomes a smart casual affair.
Buena Vista Social Club has amazing locations around Cape Town, at Long Street, Durbanville, Eden on the Bay and Somerset West. However, their establishment that attracts the most attention is in Green Point, just outside the V&A Waterfront on Portswood Road. With an authentic Cuban atmosphere, top-notch food and affordable drinks, Buena Vista has become a choice destination for many locals over the weekend. If you fancy flexing your salsa dancing skills then you should get there on a Monday, with open salsa lessons being taught by professional dancers.
