Cuba Castro’s Cool Cuban Bar with Cigars in TST

[23/11/11] 

We’ve discovered a Cuban bar in Tsim Sha Tsui, Cuba Castro’s, which sells cracking cocktails and cigars – the latter somewhat under the table. Well, not really under the table – the cigars sit in a humidor in the middle of the bar – but they’ll tell you to be discreet when you’re having a puff. How you can be discreet with a huge brown stick smoking out of your mouth is another matter but it’s their problem and we're the ones left smiling. And spluttering.

They serve a set lunch and snacks at night but you don’t go for the food (the cuisine is distinctly average) you go for the cigars and the cocktails. Their drinks are massive, a few will have you roaring towards Lan Kwai Fong, and they slip down rapidly. We tucked into the mojito and caipirinha, the standard litmus test for this kind of establishment and were impressed, not to mention a little squiffy.

If you’re up for a Cuban smoke they sell the likes of Montecristo No. 2 and Cohiba Siglo II, but aside from the joy of having a cigar, the space and its location is what makes the place. Although it’s a bit scruffy the bar has wide open veranda like windows and it’s somewhat hidden in TST so you get that extra bit of enjoyment for reaching it in the first place. If you’re taking part in Movember and have a strong moustache it’s the place to sport your ‘gringo’ and start slamming Cuba Libres.

Cuban Carnival.
