The Cuban Revolucion

The official word on the new Peter Street bar

We've seen a huge amount of interest in the launch of Revolucion De Cuba and a lot of questions have been asked that we didn't yet have the answers to. As the opening of this new bar's doors draws near, we're delighted to say that the owners have been in touch with a few words that might sate the demand for news on the Peter Street venue.

The current Inventive Leisure statement is thus: " Revolucion De Cuba is bringing its popular Cuban-style rum and dining experience to Manchester with a new flagship venue opening soon on Peter Street.

Offering Latin American-inspired live music seven days a week, a tasty menu of Cuban and Spanish food and a premium rum-infused cocktail menu, the rum bar and cantina promises something for everyone.

The two storey venue, which was formally Squares, is being fully decked out with a Cuban-inspired rustic interior and will serve more than 50 of the finest rums from the Caribbean and Latin America.

The Manchester venue will also see the launch of Revolucion De Cuba’s first ever ‘Rare Rum Store’. Tucked away in the basement, the exclusive Havana Bar will offer the opportunity to sample some of the world’s rarest rums costing between £25 and £200 a measure.

Launching in October, Revolucion De Cuba will open until 2am on weeknights and 3am on weekends making it the perfect venue for parties, after work dinner and drinks and late night dancing.

General Manager, Ronnie Timmermans, said: “We’ve entirely transformed the venue with authentic Cuban-style interior, right down to the details, to transport you to our glorious world of rum and Havana in its heyday.

“We’ll also be holding themed events including Salsa Social Wednesdays, Big Swing Thursdays and Havana Good Time Sundays all with live music from our Latin American-inspired bands and DJs.”

So there's your update. Now please, ease off on the questions about the precise opening date as you now know as much as we do! When fitting out the interior of any new venue, opening dates are always flexible and unpredictable as you never know what issues (liquor licence, entertainment licence, fire regulations, supply of the design features, etc) might be subject to a delay that then shifts the opening date around.
