When it comes to drinks, the full bar has you covered. Everything from traditional Cuban mixes, to classic cocktails, to a few delicious speciality cocktails, there is something for everyone here. Table service is a must, especially for groups, letting you really let loose and enjoy a few bottles, even when the venue is insanely busy.
The prices at this gorgeous Cuban nightclub are amazing for the quality you are getting. The food is insanely cheap, and well worth it, and the show is typically included with whatever table you book. The drinks are a bit more expensive, but still nothing like other clubs' drink prices in the area. Expect top quality food, drinks, and service. Just remember to bring enough to tip everyone.
Inkeeping with the theme of the venue, this is one of the best spots for live music in Miami, offering jazz, salsa, classical, and basically anything and everything you might want. It is a cabaret, after all. Because of the theme of the venue, the music does not get as loud as at more typical dance clubs in Miami.
The shows have been hailed by some of the best near the 1st avenue, possibly some of the best entertainment in Miami, presenting a wide variety of acts, only really restricted by the theme and size of this sexy Latino club. Usually the shows will play during dinner time and give way to the DJ as the night progresses. This makes the venue ideal for dinner and a show, followed by a night of dancing.
Laid out with two modestly sized rooms and a balcony viewing area for the show, you can choose how you want to spend your night. You might want to have a meal before you enjoy the club atmosphere, but if you just want to enjoy one of the best places to dance in Miami, you can move to the club room as soon as it opens.
The size of the venue does interfere a bit with getting a table, so the best idea is to book your table early or get on the guest list, if not both. The dress code is decidedly glamorous and decidedly sexy. You won't need to be dressed to black tie standards, but anything too casual is a no-go as well. Try and dress business casual or in loungewear, ideally. Women really need to wear heels, and men must wear polished shoes. No streetwear or sportswear at all.
The venue offers valet parking, which is pretty handy in this busy area of Downtown Miami. They do not have a coat check, however, which means you need to avoid wearing bulky coats or bringing big bags if you can.
