If you visit Guantanamera in the daytime, you’ll think it’s just a Cuban restaurant with tiki ceiling fans and an empty stage set-up. That’s because, like owls and animated cowboy dolls, this kitschy 9th Avenue spot comes alive at night. The live band, crowded bar, and kind man selling hand-rolled cigars are the real reasons why you should come here. So the next time you want to hear some live music while simultaneously eating a cubano and learning how to mambo, try this place.
