Discover the best food and drink experiences

Prepare yourselves for a new fusion of flavour that is set to shake up the city’s food and drink scene!

Latin American bar and restaurant, Revolucion de Cuba, will open its doors this Easter weekend bringing premium Cuban rums, exotic cocktails and tasty, traditional recipes from across South America to Birmingham’s Temple Street.

With the finishing touches taking place over the next few weeks, the team is in place ready to bring a salsa sensation to the city; offering the perfect location for a Latin-themed lunch, five o’clock fiesta, and weekend celebrating Havana-style. The brand-new bar and cantina will celebrate with a weekend packed full of celebrations, kicking off with a launch party on Thursday 29 March.

Whether you’re heading for a lunchtime meeting, planning date night with your special someone, or getting friends together for a big celebration, Revolucion de Cuba invites you to the cantina for a Latin-inspired menu that will get your taste buds tingling.

On the Menu: Halloumi Tacos and Mojito Prawns

With “food cooked from the heart, to feed your tropical soul”, the menu features over 20 traditional tapas dishes; from chorizo croquettes and pork belly skewers, to halloumi tacos and mojito prawns.

If you’re not one to share, there’s a selection of burritos, burgers and sandwiches packed full of flavour too, as well as main plates that include the ultimate Cuban paella, and a vibrant Sunshine salad.

Rum Cocktails: From Miami Vice to Brazilian Bramble

It’s not just the food that will bring Latin America to life; Revolucion de Cuba is setting the bar high with its extensive drinks menu.

Rum punches like Club Tropicana and the Fruit Salad Teapot will certainly help get the party started, alongside beach-inspired beverages like Miami Vice and the Brazilian Bramble.

There’s a host of classics to be found at the bar; from the Cuba Libre and Caipirinha, to the flavour-packed Daiquiris and Mojitos with a twist.

Jon Hughes, Revolucion de Cuba Birmingham’s General Manager, is getting ready to open the city’s new party hotspot:

“This Bank Holiday is going to be a weekend to remember, as we finally open to the doors to our awesome new Temple Street bar and cantina. Not only are we bringing the best of Latin American food and drink to Brum, but we will also have live music and entertainment… not for one day, but every day of the week!

"Revolucion de Cuba is all about serving up a slice of Havana in the heart of the city, and we’ve got a brilliant team ready to do this every day. Our bar staff are passionate about creating quality drinks – whether you’re looking for cocktails, mocktails, or straight up spirits. Our kitchen team lives and breathes the menu, and you’re served by the best in the business. I’m really excited to party with Birmingham and celebrate Cuban style!”

Inside: Cuban style with Brummie twists

Visitors can expect a 1940’s Cuban style interior, with dark woods, traditional bar counters, vintage furniture, and original Cuban artwork, teamed with a few Brummie twists along the way. Whether drinking in the bar or dining in the cantina, the atmosphere will be created by live music and entertainment every single evening.

This is the 15th Revolucion de Cuba to be launched in the UK, joining cities like Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Cardiff, to name a few.
