  • In the evening, there are music and dance performances here. When we were there, a young junior dance troupe was there that have properly given gas. The cocktails are good, the prices still in order.

  • Music space to watch dancers and learn Cuban dance. Very well located, in the historic part of Trinidad.

  • Open late, typical music show but has no soft drinks. Dine before you watch the show and enjoy.
