La Descarga, LA’s first rum bar unloads its mystery, and lusty scent as you slowly descend into its clutches. La Descarga, the “discharge”, oozes the jazz of the cabarets, bars, and clubs in La Habana, both past and present. The daiquiris at El Floridita, the mojitos from La Bodeguita del Medio, the raw undulations of the Tropicana, the rumba guaguanco(dance) of the malecon, the Afro-Cuban sounds of club La Zorra y El Cuervo, and the all night party of La Casa de La Musica.
La Descarga,a transparent speakeasy, operates on a reservation system which keeps this instant scene bar a place you want to be, where service and style are foremost. The vintage dressed beauty greets you and eases you into the bar through a secret entrance where there is a crowd, but room to drink, dance, and mingle. An attentive staff keeps an eye on everyone and even if you are not for want, the enchanting Deandra may ask you how you’re doing. These people want to ensure that your time at La Descarga is special.
A quartet perched on a balcony above the main bar starts to play and a curvy babe starts to dance, “ay no ma’”, yells the conga player blistering out a cumbia beat, which is Cuban for “that’s the spot girl!” “Baila,mamasita!”(dance,hot mama)
