A Taste of Cuba in Bali

Cubana Bar and Grill Opens in Kerobokan as Baliís First Cuban-Style Night Spot

(1/13/2012) Occupying a 300-meter site and with its own dedicated parking lot, Cubana Bar and Grill has opened in the heart of the busy restaurant and night-spot area of Petitenget, Bali.

According to its management, Cubana draws its inspiration from a decadent retro 1940-1950s pre-Castro style Cuban Bar, grill restaurant and cigar bar concept. The building is located within a small development of trendy boutiques in the Petitenget fine dining and villa area.

Cubana fills the demand for a “themed” rum and cigar bar with a generous range of cocktails. Targeting tourists, expatriates, and fashionable locals for late afternoon, and both pre and post dinner drinking, the concept also embraces a BBQ grill concept for either a full-fledge dinner or a repast of savory tapas.

Decorated to resemble a pub in which Ernest Hemingway would feel at home, Cubana is situated in a colorful, colonial-style building replete with arches and columns and a tropical garden terrace suitable for private parties and function. Interior touches include many photos of classic Cuban art and framed posters. The floors are covered in distinctive colorful tiles. Chandeliers and tobacco leaf fans hang from the ceiling.

The outside terrace provides an al fresco oasis for those intent on sampling cigars and single malt whisky in the freedom of the open air.

Among the cocktail offerings are fresh-fruit Mojitos, classic Rum cocktails, Margaritas, Daiquiris, original Caipirinhas, Roskas and Sangrias – each presented in customized glassware with colorful garnishes. Single Malt Whiskies, Cognacs, fine wine & Champagne are available for the more discerning palates.

Guests can enjoy after-dinner Cuban coffee, liqueurs, Cognac and desserts together with a fine Cuban cigar. Experienced Baristas serve a complete range of espressos and other specialty coffees.

The Cuban grill menu features grilled meat - steaks, fish fillets, chicken and pulled pork - accompanied by signature salsas, crisp salads and fresh vegetables. There’s also a range of tapas acting as ready companions for evening of liquid libations.

A Cuban and Latin Jazzy music mix plays in the background during the day. At night live entertainment includes Cuban-style bands every Tuesday and Thursday nights playing a great mix of Cuban songs, salsa, cha cha cha, Bachata, Boleros, Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz.

Open daily from 4:00 p.m. for happy hours, 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. for dinner, and drinking and snacking until 1:00 a.m.
