The music event started 1 hour late and they played three songs and took a 30 minute break. The seating was very uncomfortable. No one knew about the groupon or what was included. They were only going to give me half of the offer which was the live music tickets until I pointed it out. Then when they redeemed it they only gave me a credit of $10 when it was supposed to be for $20. I will not return to this establishment.

When I arrived to Cuba ocho I wasn't greeted by anyone. I had to look for someone to help me. When I showed them the groupon they were completely lost. They were telling me that I had to pay for my entrance and the rest of my party when the groupon stated that the entrance was included. I asked for a manager to come. It took the manager 10 minutes to arrive to my table. When she arrive it was a completely different explanation she was giving me about the groupon. I had to read the groupon to her several times. I never got the $40 credit that it said I was getting. Instead I got four drinks free and an appetizer. The service that I was receiving with the first waitress was so horrible I asked

From Our Editors

The long, wooden bar is lit by ornate stained-glass lamps illuminating hand-painted scenes of Cuba inlaid on its sides. It's a fitting display for the Cuba Ocho Art and Research Center, where social interaction and art are the main draws. At its heart, the center is a cultural hub for artists, actors, yodelers, and musicians to display their talents. But that doesn't mean history takes a back seat, either. Many artists' from 1850 to 1958 are on display as well, and the center regularly sponsors art auctions and fairs with a focus on promoting Cuban artists.

On Friday and Saturday nights, live bands fill the air with sultry and energetic music from a variety of local groups such as Orquesta Seleccion Latina, Fiera Mia, and Main Street. A light tapas menu entices diners to taste a variety of the kitchen's small plates that might feature marinated olives, mango salsa, mixed cheeses, or cured meats.
