Cuba comes to Belfast

Think wooden fans, Latin cosmetic accents and street food typical of the Caribbean island of Cuba and you’ve summed up the newest name on the block on Belfast’s hospitality scene.

Revolución de Cuba arrived on Arthur Street just recently bringing rum, flavour and fiesta to the city.

Formerly Cafe Vaudeville, the new bar spreads over two floors and the grand interior that once was has been replaced with vintage tiles, wooden flooring and statement artwork.

There’s still some elegance retained from the venue’s former days with velvet sofas and leather chairs adding a touch of class.

There’s also a smaller Mezzanine bar which can host private functions while live music promises to fill up the dance floor.

Among the USPs is Revolución de Cuba’s cocktail list which filled with rum, daiquiris and ‘Latin mainstays’ say the owners.

The food’s good too. It’s Latin-themed and is served from the Cantina and includes salads, wraps, tacos, and pulled pork sandwiches, as well as light burrito bowls. Tapas are a big feature too; gambas pil pil, patatas bravas, pork belly skewers, salmon ceviche and iberico ham croquettas are among the teeny dishes.
