Heard of Little Havana yet? It’s only the best street party in Cape Town, dude!

Hosted by Havana Club Rum each First Thursday, it’s the coolest jol in the heart of the city.

Sabah Cabano attended the most recent one as a guest of Tin Can PR, and came home with stars in her eyes. Here is her version of the event:

I danced so much at Little Havana, my knees shook the next day. This special occasion falls once a month on First Thursdays, which has the alleys of Cape Town bursting at the seams with hot, hot music and the coolest party crowd. Adding to the atmosphere was the smoky aroma of authentic Cuban cigars wafting over from the sectioned-off smoking area near the bar. Every corner in sight had a gyrating Capetonian beauty, or a lekker local lad chatting up lively chicas from underneath the brim of a snappy Panama hat. Havana Club 7 Rum cocktails were served generously, which no true party-goer could resist!

I fell in love with the live music. The songs resonated throughout the venue flashing strobe lights, a smoke machine, and the iconic “Havana Club” logo flickering across the walls. As a young adult accompanied by friends, I felt so in touch with the cultural immersion that Little Havana encouraged. The intimacy between the brand and the party-goers added to the vibe. I felt as if I was transported into my own little Cuban city amongst the inner city Cape Town art galleries and clubs. I definitely want to attend Little Havana again, but next time round I’ll be bringing all my friends too!

Little Havana is back for 1st Thursdays in Cape Town. The next event is on 3rd January 2019, so book well in advance, at R100 a pop. Feel, see and taste Cuba, as Havana Club rum presents an authentic Cuban pop-up event celebrating El Ron de Cuba (‘the rum from Cuba’) and the spirited island it hails from.
The event series hosted by Havana Club 7 Rum shares an evening of Cuban culture, customs, a not-to-be- missed party and everyone is invited!

Little Havana will pop up on Bree Street for one night only during First Thursdays, with Havana Club rum, often used in much-loved cocktails, being the vital catalyst in bringing the Cuban spirit to Cape Town.

Hitch a ride in one of the vintage Cuban cars driving around, or find your way from one of the supporting venues: Rum TumTum, Love Thy Neighbour, House of Machines and The Station all situated on Bree Street where #littlehavana will lead you to feel, taste and experience authentic Cuba.

Experience the passion of Cuba in the heart of Cape Town, as you salsa along the route, play a game of dominoes, indulge in authentic Cuban cigars and nibble on Cuban inspired treats, all under a balmy summer night sky.

Tropical Buena Vista-styled décor against painted facades echoes the tropical heat, with sounds of South Africa’s NV Fun to help you get your sexy grooves on to dance all night.

Put your best foot forward, throw on your beads, fedora and dancing shoes because Little Havana is coming back to First Thursday. Yup, dressing the part adds to the vibe!

Just one word of caution: Take inspiration from the heart and soul of vintage Cuba, by wearing comfy sliders, espadrilles or sneakers. Little Havana’s cobbled streets ain’t made for high heels, gurl!

So drag your chicas and hombres along and don’t miss out; it’ll be a fiesta to remember.

Venue, dates and times are announced closer to the day. Keep First Thursdays free!
