The famous Tropicana cabaret is an Havana tropical version of the Paris Lido shows. The cabaret opened in 1939 and is an extravagant spectacle with a revue of glamour and nostalgia. Before the Revolution, the Tropicana was a Casino owned by gangsters and visited by the Rich and Famous. The British writer Graham Greene describes the scenes in the Tropicana in his famous novel Our Man in Havana.
The dress code is formal, no shorts or sneakers. The show is a rather pricey experience but it's a must for the first time visitor to Havana.
The show is great , the music and the dancers with feather costumes are wunderful. Taking pictures is only allowed with a permission , pictures cost you an extra 5 $ and video 15 $
