Be dazzled by Cuban music, dance, costumes and folklore at Havana's best traditional cabarets.

Among the great ways to enjoy a night out in Havana is to attend a spectacular cabaret show, complete with lively Cuban music, colourful costumes, dazzling dancing and compelling storytelling. Two of the best are the intimate Cabaret Parisien in the Hotel Nacional and the larger and more famous Tropicaca, set outdoor at El Salón Bajo las Estrellas, surrounded by tropical tress. It has been a great success and remains as popular as ever as it approaches its 80th year.
