The Bar at Buena Vista  The Grandfathers of Cuban Music is a passport to another time, another place that takes audiences to the downtown bar of a Havana Club of the ’40s and ’50s – creating a festive cocktail of music and dance, in a night filled with raunchy salsa, rhythms of tropical jazz and Cuban folk music in a show that is as intoxicating as the rum served at the bar on stage.
