This famous El Vedado bar hosts LGBTQ+-themed parties regularly. Every Wednesday, they host glam for “PaZillo Pride” events. Each one celebrates a different subgroup of Cuba’s queer community – from ladies-only dating events to drag queen parties.
No matter when you go, you will run into a welcoming and trendy atmosphere. The food menu is relatively basic and limited to burgers and standard appetizers that will help you prolong the night.
Meanwhile, the drinks menu is constantly changing as they come up with new signature blends. Still, their specialty remains creamy, rum-infused blends with unorthodox fruit juices – from tropical berries to coconut milk or guava extract.
This is a boisterous, dance-oriented place, so expect the music to include the years’ Billboard hits, and to gravitate strongly towards salsa, reggaeton, and other tropical rhythms. The dress code is flexible, but comfy shoes are recommended.
One last pro tip: The door fee for any of their parties doubles as an entry for a nightly raffle. You’ll be given a numbered sticker, which you should immediately stick to your clothes or purse. At the end of the party, one lucky number will win something (usually drinks or tickets for a future event), but during it, the sticker will help you score a few extra phone numbers. Just write down a provocative message on a piece of paper, and ask the bar staff to pass the note to your chosen number.
