If one wanted to know what Havana was like before the sugar Cane Revolutions, head down to QBA at the Westin, Kuala Lumpur. With its faux traditional interior - steel chairs, angel statuettes as well as timber bar stools that hark to a forgotten age - QBA conjures a romantic setting for couples looking for a romantic night out.
As expected, drinks like mojito and caipirinhas are authentic as they come- the result of the careful ministrations of the establishment's resident Cuban Bar manager - Mr. Alfredo Hernandez.
Entertainment wise, a six-piece band from Columbia - Azucar - strikes up the requisite salsa, meringue, cha-cha and Latin pop tunes.
