What to expect when the Revolución reaches Birmingham

Birmingham’s latest bar and restaurant Revolución de Cuba is on the brink of opening.

The Latin American-styled venue will open its doors this Easter weekend bringing premium Cuban rums, exotic cocktails and tasty, traditional recipes from across South America to Temple Street.

Finishing touches will take place over the next few weeks.

The team is already in place ready.

The  bar and cantina will celebrate with a weekend packed full of celebrations, kicking off with a launch party on Thursday March 29.

The menu features over 20 traditional tapas dishes – including chorizo croquettes, pork belly skewers, halloumi tacos and mojito prawns.

There’s a selection of burritos, burgers and sandwiches, as well as main plates that include Cuban paella.

Revolución de Cuba’s extensive drinks menu will feature rum punches like Club Tropicana alongside beach-inspired beverages like Miami Vice and the Brazilian Bramble.

This is the 15th Revolucion de Cuba to be launched in the UK, joining cities like Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Cardiff.

Visitors can expect a 1940s Cuban style interior, with dark woods, traditional bar counters, vintage furniture, and original Cuban artwork, teamed with a few Brummie twists along the way.
