In the 1950s-era Cuba-themed front room, you’ll find master bartender and founder Julio Cabrera and the team clad in vests and bow ties, shaking up creations like the El Guayabero, spiked with tequila, guava marmalade, cayenne-agave syrup, and lime juice. On the weekend, head to the back and snag a seat at the ‘80s-style 305 Bar, a late-night tribute to Miami’s Golden Girls-era glory days, open from midnight to 2 am.
Nobody’s really complaining about the world-class cocktails and cool Cuban music at award-winning Café La Trova. But sometimes your night just calls for a little more Mex Headroom. If that’s the case on a Friday or Saturday night, head straight to the back of Café La Trova where the ‘80s are still alive and well. In addition to an entirely different drink menu, you’ll also discover vintage shows on TV, new wave on the stereo, and tributes to the white powder that made Miami what it is today.
How to book: Show up for first-come, first served seating.
