Casa Havana launches in London as a two-week pop up events space, bar and restaurant right in the heart of Soho.
Havana Club is set to throw open the doors to Casa Havana, a brand new pop-up experiential space running from 11th-20th August at 15 Bateman Street in the heart of Soho, London. Casa Havana is a versatile space designed to celebrate the authentic Cuba, brought to life through key cultural pillars food, music and colour.
Cuba’s most loved rum brand is inviting Londoners to experience a series of events in true Cuban surroundings, starting with a five course dining experience curated by Street Feast founder Dom Cools-Lartigue. Inspired by his recent trip to Havana – where he met with chefs and sampled local markets and ’paladars’ for inspiration – Cools-Lartigue has worked with celebrated chef Marcus Bean to create a menu that takes in Cubano tacos, shredded beef tostones and seabass ceviche.
Guests will be able to enjoy exclusive artwork specially created by renowned street artist Ben Eine. When in Havana recently, Eine met with local artists from a range of backgrounds including traditional film poster producers to graphic designers. He has brought those experiences to life in his own artwork which will be showcased at Casa Havana before being auctioned for charity. Eine also, in collaboration with artists brought over from Cuba by Havana Club, created the street signage that will welcome guests into the space:
“Havana was everything I expected and a lot more”, commented Ben Eine, ”the city is alive with colour and energy,and there are some insanely talented artists showcasing their art publicly. It’s going to be amazing to bring a little of that to everyone back in London.”
