  • La Roca has a very pleasant bar with great decoration (lots of 1950’s art deco glass), which makes a good pit stop if you are around. Recently this has started to attract large queues of mainly Cubans for the comedy show, which performs at 10.30pm each night. If you want to see how, it is probably best to have dinner first at the restaurant, which secures you a good view.
