2019 marks 500 years since the city of Havana was founded. In this auspicious year, a London pop up experience is celebrating in the quintessentially Cuban way - with live music, salsa dancing, and rum. Having launched in late 2018, Last Nights Of Havana brings the distinctive tastes, sounds and spirit of pre-revolution Cuba to Tobacco Dock and is the perfect place to pay homage to this legendary city.
Originally known as Villa de San Cristobal de La Habana, 1519 was the year in which Havana was founded by Spanish settlers, making it the seventh village of Cuba. This city, which buzzes with music and is rich in colour and culture, is celebrating by restoring some of its historic building and planning a huge programme of parties, cultural events and concerts. Last Nights Of Havana will run for a limited number of nights this Spring, allowing Londoners to enjoy a taste of these celebrations.
A celebration of rum, jazz, dance and decadence, Last Nights of Havana brings the glamour of pre-revolution Cuba straight to London's Tobacco Dock. Guests can dance the night away with professional salsa dancers and enjoy live jazz from Cuban-born band Sambroso Sambroso, while sipping on delicious rum cocktails and munching authentic Cuban street food.
