Revolución de Cuba brings taste of Havana to Glasgow

RDC Glasgow bar interior 12

Revolution Bars Group has brought the vibrancy and flavours of Cuba to Glasgow with the launch of Revolución de Cuba in the B-listed Culzean House at 36 Renfield Street.

The 120-cover rum bar and cantina has a colourful Cuban-style interior, and a capacity of 500. It offers 40 rums from around the world, South American beers and lagers, gins and an exotic cocktail menu, plus a range of Latin American-style tapas and mains.

General Manager, Jenny Barlow, told Dram, “We want our customers to feel like they’re on holiday, so we wanted the place to feel warm and vibrant; pairing friendly, knowledgeable service with a party atmosphere. South America is all about fiestas and the people are so passionate about what they eat and drink.”

“Havana in its heyday it was all about throwing speakeasy parties and people having fun and that’s the vibe we’re creating here.”

The Glasgow unit is the fifth Scottish addition to the brand, following the launch of Revolución de Cuba Aberdeen late last year.

The interior is definitely a fiesta of colour and fun with plenty of nods to Havana.
