“New Years Eve Party”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Although bookings were required, Cubana were still able to squeeze us in somewhere for their New Year's Eve Party.
Their cocktail menu is the best I have across - wide variety of dessert, fire, colourful cocktails. We also ordered a Hookah to really get into the swing of things!
The selection of DJ's were great in the beginning, but after the new year count down, the music became very African and Kwaito-like, at that point we went home.

“Reasanable in every aspect”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

A noisy joint to have à drink of cocktail. The selection of cocktails is impressive but they are all quiet weak and à bit dull from taste. You need to order a shooter on the side. The food is ok, the music loud service friendly and helpful but very pushy for a next drink.

“Noisy music, just for youths”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

The place is not bad; the point is probably the clientele. Too heavy decor. Although the prices are reasonable

“Going Down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

The place is now starting to loose it touch. The chairs have drink stains. The service is also not as it used to be.

The biggest turn off is the Djs. Even if you take 3 months without place. The day you come, you will almost feel like its the same music as the last time you were there. and the mixing quality is very poor.ng to the play
