Salón Rosado de la tropical
The Salón Rosado de la Tropical stands out in Havana because it’s a completely different scene. It’s quite simply exceptional. A large, open-air venue in the Marianao district, it’s full of Cuban youths dancing madly to the salsa of Los Van Van and Pupi y los que Son Son or the pop rock of Habana Abierta. It’s also the up-and-coming spot for the Cuba’s developing dj culture, with hip hop and electronic like Wichy del Vedado, DJ Joy de Cuba and local rappers of the moment. Check out who’s playing ahead of time at this eclectic venue. And go on a weekend if you can: like most places in Cuba, Friday and Saturday nights are the best!
