by | Dec 6, 2017 | GOOD EATS

A Shockoe Bottom restaurant/nightclub that’s been slinging mojitos, serving up Cuban food, and entertaining crowds under the glow of string lights with Salsa dancing every Thursday evening since 1995 is finally expanding with a new location.

Havana ’59, located at 16 N. 17th Street, will open its second location in the West End on West Broad Street this Friday and it’s bringing with it the alluring aroma of cigars, the original dinner menu (hello famous Cuban nachos), brunch, and will be open for lunch featuring a new menu.
