Date Posted:27/08/2015

Revolucion de Cuba Milton KeynesThe biggest fiesta to ever hit Milton Keynes is coming this October; so grab your dancing shoes as Revolución de Cuba kicks off a new beat in the city.

The brand new £1 million Latin American rum bar and cantina, located in the Theatre District, will bring the cool vibe of Cuba and the infamous Havana nights to MK, creating a fresh and exciting new destination. The relaxed daytime food and drink experience will turn into a Caribbean fiesta as the sun goes down to unleash live music, dancing and celebration, “when you step through the door you forget whatever’s outside,” says General Manager at Revolución de Cuba Milton Keynes, Rob Macdonald.

“Revolución de Cuba is everything Cuban bars offer. It’s what you would expect to find from the old Cuban glamour days and the famous Buena Vista Social Club of the 30s. Today’s de Cuba is just that but with a modern twist.”

The opening will create 75 local jobs including glass collectors, bar staff and management positions. Each will receive extensive training to ensure they deliver the true de Cuba experience. Clinton Ghent, Area and Brand Manager of Revolución says; “Delivering an amazing customer experience is our sole mission and we do anything we can to achieve this. Whether you come in for a coffee or an evening out with friends, our team is there to entertain and serve our guests to the highest level possible.

“The Theatre District is a great location and there are lots of exciting changes taking place. Our arrival will be a major start to bringing new life to this area and giving people in Milton Keynes an exciting new place to visit.”

The unique Revolución de Cuba design is based on a rustic chic inspired theme with spinning ceiling fans, vintage furniture and live music stage to create an original setting for customers to drink, dance and dine.

The cantina will provide an authentic range of freshly prepared and cooked Cuban-inspired foods during the day and the evening. From light lunchtime Tapas to the famous hearty Ropa Vieja, a classic Cuban meat stew of shredded lamb in a rich tomato and pepper sauce. The extensive menu offers a variety of Burritos and Hamburguesas and customers will ‘fall in love’ with de Cuba’s guacamole – a speciality with its own secret ingredients freshly made on site.

Rob says: “Our head chefs have spent weeks in the backstreet kitchens of the most extraordinary restaurants in Cuba to find the secrets behind recipes that go back generations. Each dish has its own story that we have translated to capture its essence and pass on to our customers.”

The Milton Keynes Revolución de Cuba will complement its food offering with a carefully crafted drinks menu; specialising in rum, of course. An enviable selection of premium cocktails and assortment of rums add to the soul of the Cuban party that is heightened by live music during the day and evening.

Salsa lessons and networking events will also be on the menu at Revolución de Cuba with more surprises expected to be revealed shortly.
