A Night Under the Stars at Tropicana Cabaret
Visit the famous Tropicana Cabaret show and immerse in a dazzling world of entertainment, glamour, fun and historical prestige.
When you step into the Tropicana Cabaret, you enter a world of glamorous entertainment steeped in glorious heritage. Established in 1939 and offering thrilling nightly shows since 1956 it is, quite simply, one of the most celebrated cabarets in the world, regarded by many as the original and the best.
Let this excursion take you on a full feast of the senses as you admire the music, the dancing, the customes, the dinner, the drinks and the decidedly tropical Cuban atmosphere.
Outstanding Natural Beauty
The Tropicana Cabaret is the quintessential night out in Havana. The legendary spectacle features all that is glitzy and enticing - kaleidoscopic lights, elaborate costumes, excitingly choreographed routines and above all some of the most stunning ladies to ever grace a stage, the Tropicana girls, admired by men and women alike and traditionally known as "Las Diosas de Carne" or "the Goddesses of the Flesh". A quick glance at their exceptional physiques, clothed in the odd bit of sparkle and shimmer explains the nickname at once.
A Musical Haven
The dancers gyrate with, it must be said, outstanding rhythmic talent, to a wide variety of uplifting music, from rumba to sensual salsa, conga to a frenetic smattering of drumbeats, guaracha and more besides. Cuba is a country that oozes musicality from every alleyway - it is one of the abiding memories of anyone who visits this jewel of a Caribbean island.
No surprise then that the Tropicana has a proud history of attracting some of the biggest names in the music business. Sinatra sang here, Nat King Cole displayed his trademark charm, Carmen Miranda lived up to her fruity legend, Josephine Baker teased her audience and Tito Puente rocked them in the aisles. The list of headliners is long and impressive.
A Vibrant History
Vibrant is indeed the word associated with the Tropicana Cabaret since day one. At its inception, around the start of World War II, it was known as Beau Site, a private members' club. It later changed hands and gradually evolved into a unique, world-famous open-air setting for magical, memorable evenings. Guests marvel at glass archways and tropical foliage, which all creates a fantastic ambience for up to 1750 guests who are seated on tables surrounding a central stage.
The Tropicana cabaret is an outstanding experience for any visitor to Cuba who wants to immerse themselves in authentic, irresistible Havana fun. The colours, the music, the light, the dancers... everything conspires to create a superb evening, one which will longer in the memory. The Tropicana Cabaret, like Havana itself, is simply unmissable.
