Party Earth Fiesta Havana Review

The Scene

Fiesta Havana in London’s Fulham is a great Cuban bar with salsa lessons & a packed young crowd of dancers. Let loose in London with Party Earth.

For a taste of Cuba in London, patrons need look no further than Fiesta Havana, a place where Hemingway himself might have been a regular when he was homesick for Havana.

Well, twenty-something Hemingway, anyway.

The venue is awash in warm, tropical colors, fake stone patterns, and kitschy fake plants, as well as walls nearly covered in an array of murals depicting salseros, musicians, and the Cuban flag.

Beneath the names of famed Havana nightspots like El Floridita, which are scrawled in cursive above the dance floor, stylish Latino couples and block-footed newbies alike take advantage of nightly dance lessons, as t-shirted pros show how to step and sway to salsa rhythms.

Both the upper-tier restaurant and the lounge tucked in beside the dance floor provide perfecto views of these salseros-in-training, and plenty of space for groups of friends to get dizzy – without a single copa turn – thanks to strong cocktails like the Curacao-laced Club Tropicana.

The place gets progressively busier through the daily Happy Hour, so once the chicken croquettes and chorizo quesadillas from the Cuban menu are finished, and the margarita jugs have had time to settle, visitors will find a hot and heaving club atmosphere rumbling with Caribbean beats and packed with limber expats, gaggles of college kids, and smartly dressed dudes getting sweaty.

For the salsa-addicted or the simply salsa-curious, Fiesta Havana will have everyone shouting “¡Arriba!” and dancing their hearts out, whether they have talent or not.

Tip from Emma:

Fiesta Havana offers free dance lessons to beginners every night from 7:30–8pm. If you miss one of the freebies, pony up for the full lessons. You’ll be spinning like (and be spun by) a pro in no time.

  • Crowd

    Big international mix of Latin expats, college kids, dance-happy groups of friends, girls on a night out, stylish dudes who know how to lead, and probably a few creepers looming in the corners (just spin, spin away!), 18 to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Free dance lessons kick off every night from 7:30–8:30pm, with pay-for classes at £5–£8/person available 8:30–10pm. Six-month lesson packages also available at a slight per-lesson discount.

    From 10pm, resident DJs spin a mix of salsa, South American beats, pop, and house music.

    Flat-screen playing Latino music videos.

    Bartender competition every first Sunday and a Latin Carnival-themed party on last weekends.

    Foosball table near the bar.

    Octoberfest Pub (678–680 Fulham Road) promises a rowdy pocket of Bavarian beers, mammoth schnitzels, and dirndl-clad madness.
