The evenings in Cuba are sizzling hot and the air is thick with the sound of music and dancing. If you’re in Varadero, some of these exciting evening activities are sure to keep you smiling till the sun goes down and much later.
Toted the best evening activity in all of Varadero by its many visiting and local fans, Cabaret Continental is a dazzling nightclub with a difference. As suggested by the name, this exciting club hosts incredible cabaret shows with elaborate costumes and fun musical numbers.
The club hosts dinner and a show before 11pm, after which comes the booming club night where the rum flows and the dancefloors are packed.
The clubs in Cuba are hot and heaving with locals and tourists dancing the night away. The top clubs in Varadero are La Rumba, where South American hits and bubbles fill the air and the $10 cover charge includes free drinks, or Cuevos Los Pirates, which is literally a nightclub in a huge cave – what could be more exciting?
Live Music Bars
Cuba is a musical kind of place and Varadero is home to many music clubs and venues for you to dance the night away in, rum cocktail in hand.
Piano bars are a classy way to spend an evening and you can’t go wrong with ones like Noche Azul Piano Bar. If you’re up for something a little more lively, head to a club like Calle 62, where the live Cuban band play loud into the night and people from all over come to salsa in this fantastic open-air bar.
Night Time Dining
Varadero is home to some fantastic restaurants and what better way to kick off an evening than with a delicious meal out?
The hidden gem, Waco’s Club, is a charming little restaurant with an open-air roof terrace for enjoying a delicious meal on those hot Cuban nights. The menu offers seafood favourites like lobster and other South American style dishes like grilled chicken, all exquisitely prepared.
For something a little different, dine at La Gruta. This fantastic restaurant is housed inside a cave and serves some of the best steak and lobster in town.
Cuban sunsets are seriously impressive and the best way to see one is from the deck of a yacht, while sailing the Caribbean. There are many companies that offer sunset cruises from Chapelin Marina to Cayo Blanco, including dinner and a bar. Watch as your crew catch lobsters straight from the sea and then prepare them for a romantic al fresco dinner on deck while you watch the sun go down – the perfect way to end a holiday.
