CubanaThis place gets packed around rush hour and it's a fun place to go in the evenings, but dead at lunch. The interior is draped out in flags and Che pictures and the staff try hard to make a party atmosphere, with a great deal of success. The superb cocktails certainly lift the mood of the vast majority of customers. However this is really a drinking spot and the food is disappointing; unoriginal and poorly done in general. It's more about the Latin American vibe and the live music - there's live Salsa and Latin music every Wednesday from 10.15pm to around 12.30am, Thursday from 10.15pm to around 1am, and Fridays and Saturdays from 11pm to around 3am. If you're looking for a place to have a great drink with a good crowd and perhaps nibble an enchilada as an afterthought, then this is the place for you.

Notes:
Booking advisable.
4 Outdoor tables.
