Live music goes on stage at Queens Pub just about every night. while most of it is rock, there are other genres occasionally as well. There’s also a nice drink selection with a wide range of alcohol. It’s also the place to go if you want something similar to what you might find back home.
Shakespeare’s English Pub
Looking for a pint of beer and some fish and chips? Head to Shakespeare’s English Pub. It is your classic British restaurant, and while you’ll still find some local flavors and variations based on regional food, it is a nice alternative to the other options out there.
Almost all of the music played at Cuba is South-American based, and most of the drinks are also influenced by South American flavors. A few pointers before you go though. For starters, while the music will be authentic Latin music, the cocktails aren’t particularly authentic. You can find your standard Corona, although it will be more expensive than you might expect.
Only go here if you want to pay some serious cash. It is a party (as the name would suggest) but it is also pricey. Many locations will not even start serving your table until you pony up more than $100. And $100 for vodka is pretty steep, since vodka is one of the most universally inexpensive liquors in the world. So while you will probably have fun, keep all of this in mind before going.
