Revolución de Cuba

Prepare for a whole lotta rum love...

I went along to a little preview of the brand spankin' new Revolucion de Cuba that has just opened up in the city centre, and I can't lie, I had an absolute ball!

Revolucion de Cuba is all about the Cuban fiesta coming to Glasgow. It's a party. With Latin-American inspired food and an amazing selection of cocktails. This is a place that's all about completely relaxing and having the best time.

The Havana inspired deco really sets the scene of the place, with the live band adding to the wonderfully relaxed salsa ambience.

On the night we were all completely spoiled and it as fabulous!

To begin with we all got a taste of the food that Revolucion de Cuba has on offer - and it hinted at great things to come!

"Cuban food is a melting pot, a fusion of flavours from Spain, Mexico and South America cooked up in dishes inspired by the backstreet bars of Havana." 

Therefore, we kicked the evening off with a bit of spice.

After smelling all the rich and wonderful spices we tried some beautiful pulled pork that had been marinated in a fabulous mixture. Then it was our turn! We got the opportunity to make our own delicious mix with all the spices that we'd tried out, mixing and them up in our own concoctions. I can't wait to try out the spices at home and taste all these amazing flavours again.

Next up was rum club!

Revolucion de Cuba is all about the rum and this is where things got giggly. The rum-experts took us through a selection of rums, talking about each of their histories and individual stories. They had some incredible knowledge and it was really interesting to hear them talk about something they're obviously passionate about. I've done a little bit of wine and whisky tasting before, but it was so much fun to try something new!

Then came the mountains of food...

We were treated to an absolute feast of Latin-inspired tapas. I mean the mouth-watering food just kept arriving. Every single morsel was absolutely delicious and I could've eaten every last scrap! There was everything from nachos, quesadillas, potatas braves and everything in between. The food lived up to all my expectations and rounded off the most fantastic evening.

Revolucion de Cuba is a little gem in Glasgow. It's just so much fun and has the perfect balance of being a bit of a party and also being oh so relaxed The ambience is just perfect. It's definitely going to  be my place to go for a giggly, cocktail-fuelled evening with the girls!

Thanks so much to Revolucion de Cuba for having me along, it was absolutely fabulous! I can't wait to go back and see the place filled up with everyone chatting, dancing - and enjoying rum of course!
