Occupying the former shell of the prerevolutionary Le Vendome French restaurant since June 1998, Imagenes provides a cozy, air conditioned venue for dealmaking and social conversation. It features comfortable seating groups, soft lighting, a tapas menu and piano music by the borrowed maestro of the local symphony, Mario Romeu. Most drinks are $3, including traditionals like daiquiris and mojitos. There are seven champagnes and sparking wines, priced between $25 and $150 a bottle, and the rare 15-year Havana Club at $12 a shot. Featured tapas dishes include calamari, shrimp, vegetables in creole sauce, ham horns and asparagus salad. (1/98)
Since opening in 1997, Club Jazz has served up world class music in an intimate underground (literally) club setting. There are nice touches, like Spanish olives served in a martini glass with paper wrapped toothpicks, but the real attraction is the jam sessions by some of Cubas greatest musicians, night after night, with an occasional drop-in from a visiting musician like George Benson.
