Cuba Libre started as a vibrant window into a distant culture in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood 15 years ago. Today, their four locations in Philadelphia, PA; Atlantic City, NJ; Orlando, FL and Washington, DC are transportive restaurants whose decor and menu evoke the still forbidden pleasures of Cuba.

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar, located at 10 S. 2nd Street in Philadelphia, PA, serves lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Dinner is served Monday through Wednesday from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m., Thursday through Saturday until 11 p.m. and Sunday from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m.  Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  On weekend nights from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m., Cuba Libre transforms into a lively nightspot as a DJ spins salsa, bachata and other popular Latin dance music.  For more information, or to make a reservation, please call (215) 627-0666 or visit Follow Cuba Libre on Twitter (@CubaLibrePHL) and Instagram (@CubaLibreRestaurant) and “like” them on Facebook.
