Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar

Cuba Libre Restaurant and Rum Bar features Nuevo Cubano cuisine by two-time James Beard award-winning Chef Guillermo Pernot

Cuba Libre Restaurant and Rum Bar features Nuevo Cubano cuisine by two-time James Beard award-winning Chef Guillermo Pernot. Pernot's menu features tantalizing tastes are are derived from the exotic island's culinary traditions, which include Spanish, African, Creole, and Asian influences. The restaurant's atmosphere transports guests to old Havana, circa the 1950s. One of a kind mill work and architectural salvage including unique doors, gates, cabinetry, furniture, and accessories help capture the essence of Old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and large potted palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open air, tropical ambiance. Featuring a selection of over 70 rums, Cuba Libre's uniquely refreshing house specialty, the mojito, is made from the authentic Cuban recipe of combing rum, fresh lime juice, fresh mint leaves, a splash of soda, and most distinctively, guarapo (sugar cane juice pressed daily on site).
