3. Old’s Havana

1442 SW 8th Street, Miami (786-518-2196)

A real Miami thing to do is go to Old’s Havana, a traditional Cuban Bar & Restaurant located in the heart of little Havana, right beside the famous Domino Park. Find authentic, reasonably priced  Cuban food and cocktails and on weekends, live music — rumba, boleros and son. Thursdays a guitar player stars at 9 p.m. It’s a casual, fun place and check out the historic photos of pre Castro Cuba. You might combine it with a movie at historic Tower Theater, always with a good lineup of foreign and art films.

  1. El Tucán

1111 SW 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33130, (305) 535-0065

Introduced by owners Michael Ridard and Mathieu Massa, El Tucán is more than just a dinner and a show experience. It is a cabaret moment that pays homage to Cuba in the 1940s, transported to the heart of Miami’s expanding Brickell area. Every Thursday to Saturday, live acts take the stage at the playhouse to an elevated and authentic experience while diners enjoy exciting fare.
