Havana by night classic car tour

Description

From castles to cabaret, this Havana Vintage Car Night Tour takes you from Havana’s oldest landmarks to one of its most famous night-time shows. Visit Morro Castle before heading to an Old Havana restaurant for dinner and then watch the cannon shot ceremony en route to a famed show to round off the evening in style.

Morro Castle is one of two fortifications that guard the entry to Havana harbour. Its walls have endured sieges and revolutions, and an exhibition recounts its history. Next, head to Old Havana for a walk through its cobbled streets to the restaurant. After you´ve dined, its back to the waterfront where soldiers in Spanish imperial uniforms perform the 9pm cannon shot ceremony.

The evening ends on a high at the Tropicana show or the Buena Vista social club – where the stylish glamour of a bygone era is very much in evidence. Charting the different cultural influences that have shaped Cuban music, the cabaret is all sequinned showgirls, sky-high headdresses and electric salsa, rumba and mambo.

Map overview

Panoramic night tour

Havana by Night is a mix of cultural, historical, culinary, and musical flavors. Your panoramic tour will take you through some of the highlights of Havana such as Paseo del Prado, Parque Central, El Capitolio, Plaza de la Revolución and along the famous Malecón promenade.

Cabaret Tropicana Club

The most beautiful dancers in the world are found at the Cabaret Tropicana Club. Since the early years in the last century the Cabaret Tropicana was a nightclub that became a legend in the history of world musical and variety shows and was known as the “most attractive and sumptuous nightclub in the world.”

The Tropicana is to Havana what the Moulin Rouge is to Paris so for some classic Cuban cabaret, this outdoor extravaganza will light up your night. Cue bikini-clad showgirls shaking gravity-defying feather headdresses and ruffle-sleeved dancing dudes beating bongos. The music is hot stuff, too, touching every Cuban genre from bolero to rumba and son to mambo.

Long known as the ‘circle under the stars’, Tropicana blends Spanish and African musical influences with more recent styles such as rumba, mambo and Latin jazz. It’s no wonder such a dazzling show is one of the jewels in the crown of Havana’s nightlife.

Spend a memorable evening at one of the most popular casinos in Cuba to experience a show that received the Best of the 5 Stars Diamond award in 1992 for the best cabaret in the Americas. Enjoy a 2-hour artistic show that combines ballet and carnival moves with colorful costumes and the island’s music.

Buena Vista Social Club concert

Music lovers are in for a treat – this is a chance to experience the authentic Cuban rhythms of the legendary Buena Vista Social Club. Take your seat and enjoy a night full of great music.

Visit the birthplace of great Cuban musicians and enjoy traditional rhythms like the Cuban son, the unique guaguanco, salsa, bolero, rumba, and other typical Caribbean sounds. Also a fundamental part of Cuban history, this place was made popular in 1940 by a group of musicians, including the American guitarist Ry Cooder, who became famous presenting his album “Buena Vista Social Club”

A live all-star ensemble performs a mix of styles that encapsulates Cuban music; part-salsa, part-son, part-soul and part-jazz wrapped up in a collection of haunting melodies. If you’ve got any soul in you, you’ll be shimmying to the rhythms within seconds.

Set in the faded glory of a grand Havana venue and performed by musicians for whom the songs are a part of their identity, the show is as pulsating a demonstration of Cuban music as you’ll see. This tribute to the Buena Vista Social Club of the late 90s is in keeping with the hallowed traditions of the Havana live music scene.

Live Cuba through its music!
