Meanwhile Events, the team behind the successful and popular Skylight, will be bringing the distinctive tastes, sounds and spirit of pre-revolution Cuba to Tobacco Dock with the launch of Last Nights Of Havana – a celebration of rum, jazz, dance and decadence.
Inspired by the famously opulent playground that was 1940s and 50s pre-revolution Havana, the re-imagined Quayside Bar at Tobacco Dock will evoke a time when rum cocktails, cigars, Cadillacs and unbridled glamour were the order of the day. Last Nights of Havana will run for a limited number of nights between October and May 2019.
Created by Andy Mil and Elliot Ball from Cocktail Trading Company, a cocktail menu featuring a contemporary take on Cuban classics will be expertly made at the large island bar, while the smell of Cuban street food fills the air, and Cuban cigar sellers make their way through the crowds.
Cuban-born Musical Director Oreste `Sambroso’ Noda, the man behind London’s famous Sambroso Sambroso will lead the band nightly. The music at Last Nights Of Havana will draw inspiration from Cuba’s famous sounds, and combine them with a contemporary London soundtrack, turning up the tempo as the night goes on.
A unique and inspired addition to London’s going out scene, Last Nights Of Havana will soon become the destination for those looking for great cocktails, great music and glamorous escapism – from post work drinks and large groups to special occasions, rum tasting master-classes and dates with a difference.
