This is the ideal place for all lovers of the bolero, the musical style first made popular in Latin America in the 1940s, and which is now experiencing something of a come-back, particularly in Europe. This is due mainly to the success of the group, "Buena Vista Social Club ", who have certainly been given a helping hand by the documentary film of the same name. So at this venue, visitors have the chance to enjoy the rhythmic and romantic sounds played by traditional bolero bands. At midnight the "jam" session begins in the Salón del Bolero or Bolero Room, which is when the audience can sing along with the musicians. Other options include the Bar La Tarde, which offers daily presentations by singers and Cuban bands, or a visit to one of the three restaurants that specialize in Chinese, Italian and local cuisine respectively. And if that was not enough, there is also La Casa del Tobaco (The House of Tobacco) and a shop open to the public.
