It is this intrinsic bond that inspired the founders of Cuba Lounge to bring the true essence of Cuba to South African shores. Launching the first Cuba Lounge at Gateway in Umhlanga in 2007, the overwhelming success of this venue saw a second branch launched at the iconic Moses Mabhida Stadium in the wake of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Over the last nine years Cuba Lounge has grown from strength to strength, hosting international acts like Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Fatman Scoop, Jean Sean, Dead Maus to mention a few.
Cuba Lounge is now poised to expand nationally beginning with the re-launch of its flagship Gateway venue boasting a stunning new-look and followed by its first venue in Gauteng in early 2016, followed by upmarket Cuba Lounge at Midrand, San Ridge Square late in 2017. The group also has two slightly smaller concepts called Café Cuba which are based at Cornubia Mall and other at Willson’s Wharf in Durban.
