Cafe La Trova

(15 Reviews)

At Café La Trova the world famous Maestro Cantinero and Founder Julio Cabrera and his team of Cantineros (Cuban bartenders) bring to life the retro Cuba atmosphere with their artisanal, handcrafted cocktails while James Beard Award- winning chef Michelle Bernstein lends her culinary prowess with a contemporary take on Cuban and Latin-styled dishes. The high-energy concept marries traditional “cantinero” cocktail culture with Miami’s 1980s Cubano renaissance offering classic and creative drinks, Latin-inspired food with a Michy-twist and live music daily. Located on Calle Ocho in the epicenter of Little Havana, Café La Trova is named for and inspired by the traditional Cuban music, la trova, which originated in Santiago de Cuba; and for the cantinero, meaning professional bartender, a cultural touchstone in the Cuban community, to whom attention to detail, hospitality and excellent service are paramount. The restaurant has garnered multiple awards and recognition including: ranking #21 on The World’s 50 Best Bars (2022); “Best American Bar Team” at Tales of the Cocktail’s Spirited Awards (2020); GQ’s “Best New Restaurants in America” (2019); Esquire’s “Best Bars in America” (2020); “America’s Best Bartender” at Tales of the Cocktail’s Spirited Awards (2019) and many more.
