Sip cocktails, eat Cubano sandwiches and take a salsa lesson.
March 09, 2020
Given the current state of the world, holidays aren't on many folks' agendas at present — but, as always, you can pretend. For the entirety of March, Riverbar and Kitchen wants Brisbanites to feel like they've ventured to Latin America, turning the whole month to one huge Cuban Nights party.
Every day of the week, that means cocktails and Cubano sandwiches. Sip your way through a Stormy Spritz with white rum, triple sec, coconut syrup, lime juice and ginger beer, or opt for a Malecon Mai Tai with white rum, orgeat, orange juice, yuzu soda and grenadine — all while you're eating a sanga stuffed with smoked ham, pulled pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. If you're just in the mood for a snack, there's also plantain chips with mojito dip. Why just drink mojitos when you can eat them, obviously.
From Thursday–Sunday each week, Cuban Nights is also putting on live music — and if you're keen on doing the salsa (and learning how), you'll want to end your weekend there. On Sundays from 4pm, you can take a free dance class, with a three-piece Latin band playing live afterwards from 5–7pm.
