About The Cuban - Clapham

Clapham's The Cuban bar and restaurant glows with the heat of old Havana. The generous saloon bar's dark wood has the authentic patina of age, furnished with overflowing bowls of fruit and an irresistible drinks menu. Flaming Mexican, anyone? Or just a classic mai-tai or mojito? The casual dining room features modern leather banquettes and seating and mood-setting Cuban murals. The menu is best of Cuban cuisine and the service couldn't be friendlier. Infectious Latin music pours out of the speakers. Great, great vibe. If this is life after the revolution, bring it on. Please note, bookings for today must be made before 5pm.
