La Descarga



There’s something about La Descarga that makes you feel like you’ve stumbled into something really special. Maybe it’s the fact that when you enter (spoiler alert), a host opens of a closet door Narnia style which leads you into a place where you can enjoy rum with wild abandon. Maybe it’s that initial view of the action as you ascend the spiral staircase, sneak your way past the front golden bar, and find the portal that is the Cigar lounge. Maybe it’s the hourly burlesque and jazz show, where a tuba player comes right onto the dance and bar floor and seranades your party oh so sweetly while a Broadway-caliber burlesque dancer twists and twirls at every awe inspiring angle on the glittered balconies above as the band plays next to her, almost as if you’re in a really hip and sophisticated Cuban alleyway. Maybe it’s all of these things. Be sure to make a free standing room reservation in advance for your party, and if you get there early enough, you should be able to snag some seating on one of their crimson couches in the back until the show kicks off.
