Review: Revolucion de Cuba (Nottingham) : Launch Party

I was really happy to see a new business had re-opened within one of the old buildings that had been empty for some time. Revolucion de Cuba stands at the top of Market St, Nottingham,insight of the Theatre Royal. The building is impressive & welcoming with a warm bright glow. I had followed with interest the launch of the new Bar/Restaurant, with a Latin feel,we had an indication that Salsa dances may also feature on a regular basis.
 We arrived at the venue to a very friendly welcome, we had the opportunity to have a complimentary drink from the Daiquiri fountain and it was delicious. The venue was stunning with a stone staircase and intricate tiled floor.

Inside an area had been set out for food with a variety of tapas dishes, sides & more on the menu. We were able to choose where we wanted to sit without feeling hurried and had a choice of booths,big comfy sofa’s & other areas. We took our places and soaked up the atmosphere with the Latin music playing we felt very relaxed. We were advised of the offer on cocktails and they looked great on arrival. I ordered a ‘Jamaican me crazy’ and my guest ordered a ‘Pornstar martini’.

We managed to sample a few cocktails during the evening and were impressed with the happy service we received. The venue had other bar areas available upstairs,The Havana club had plush leather backed booths with an old-fashioned club style and an intimate setting with subdued lighting. The other bar had a dance floor where Salsa evenings and hopefully live music will take place. All details will be given through their website.

 I sincerely hope this bar can utilise its surroundings and invite new forms of entertainment such has dance venues and live music. It would fit perfectly at this venue and hopefully maintain the relaxed fun setting of the launch party.

Good points: Beautifully presented, relaxed atmosphere and great service.

Bad points: Prices on menu not clear and difficult to read. Would have liked to see information on upcoming events.
