On Saturday, October 25, Havana 1957’s Brickell location is turned into a rum paradise, complete with a live cigar roller, live music from Rum and Coffee Band, and samples from at least 15 rum brands including Bacardi, Caliche, Ron Barilitos, Brugal, Ron Zacapa, Rum Atlantico, and Miami Club Rum. Extra island flavor is provided by sponsoring organization Rums of Puerto Rico.
At least when viewed through the lens of nostalgia, 1957 was something of a Golden Age. Hollywood stars were capturing America's imagination with their on-screen performances and jet-setting lifestyles. Ernest Hemingway had returned to Cuba to finish his memoir, A Moveable Feast, and Havana's rum bars were buzzing with talk of revolution. Built as an homage to that bygone era, Miami's Havana 1957 has all the prerequisite features one might expect: art-deco decor, stiff cocktails, and, of course, authentic Cuban cuisine.
Here, chef Juan Luis Rosales roasts whole chickens in thick Cuban gravy, plating each succulent bird with white rice, black beans, and a side of sweet plantains. He also charbroils flank steaks and other traditional dishes to pair with more than 70 varieties of rum from around the world. The bartenders mix these rums into mojitos or just serve them the classy way—on the rocks, with an accompanying silly straw.
