Havana’s Marianao district is home to the Tropicana, which is perhaps the most iconic nightclub & celebrated cabaret show in the Caribbean.
It was established in 1939 on the Villa Mina estate of club co-founder Guillermina Pérez. The other founders were the Cuban impresario Victor de Correa & the casino operators Luis Bular & Rafael Mascaró. Together they set in motion what became the West Indies' edgiest & hippest musical show that was the hub of Havana’s bohemian life.
Tropicana won early fame for its sheer massive size, its setting in lush tropical gardens, several modern-style restaurants, & for its Salón Bajo las Estrellas. This open-air theatre "Under The Stars" is where a colourful sequin-&-feather cabaret show occurs every night thanks to Cuba's favourable climate.
