  • The Miramar house of music has been a mainstay for the very best salsa bands for many years now. It is an absolute must if you have any interest in salsa. It is housed in a beautiful old Havana mansion and offers a great atmosphere. It is much smaller than the Galiano venue and can feel a little cramped at times, especially if you are not dancing.

    Be warned also that it gets smoky inside.
