An immersive Havana nightlife experience including at least three different venues over the course of at least five hours. In keeping with local fashion and flavor, we'll go with the flow. Havana's cultural calendar is "evergreen" making you wish that there were two you. I build the experience for each specific night depending on actual programming in the city, festivals, one-off events, gallery openings etc. We will surely meet some of my Cuban friends - musicians, young professionals, creative people along the way. 1. GETTING TO KNOW. Typically, we start at a cool bar, getting to know each other, sharing our own stories. 2. WARM-UP. Lets enjoy some jazz / fusion / afro-cuban live music. I always choose the best option from what's available in the city on a particular day. 3. PARTY TIME! I'm a DJ and music producer, my Cuban folks are musicians, DJs and promoters. Depending on day of the week, we might get to another live music event or there will be an extraordinary / secret party.
