Cuba Libre: "South America in london" London Nightlife Tip by Cham

London Nightlife: 1,242 reviews and 1,310 photos

I have a vt tip in the restaurants section for this place dedicated to the eating part of this place, but i decided that this needed a seperate tip for the bar.

Oh many good memories i have thanks to this place. Happy hour is every day from 5-8 and jugs of cocktail are the order of the day. The bar staff are very fast and friendly and the drinks are pretty cheap.

The only problem with this place is the lack of space as it's always busy, I went there during the week thinking that it would be a little better but no. The atmosphere in this place is great, very cuba-ish and sets a great relaxed atmosphere. With the music in the background being things like bueno vista social club its no wonder why this place appeals to me so much... the only this that is missing is the hot weather outside and the bronzed skin populating the place.

If you're lucky you might see vt member JulesH being swung around by a freddie mercury look-a-like... pictures of that coming soon!
