Cuba and its amazing music. In the 1980s Arturo Sandoval and Irakere were the synonymous with sound of summer in the club. Ronnie Scott travelled to Havana many times and was a founder of the Havana Jazz Festival, which is still going strong.  Viva Cuba is our celebration of Cuba, its culture and its music. For many years we have been running regular Friday nights upstairs and now we’re back with a sensational evening of music that cannot fail to propel you to dance floor…
