A slice of downtown Cuba in downtown Parramatta; Coco Cubano brings the flashy Latino spirit with its lively tapas, cocktails and wine bar to Sydney's Central City. The quirky fitout, loud music and Caribbean cuisine hark back to Old Havana, and guarantee a festive night out. Rum is, of course, a staple on the drinks list, along with margaritas, mojitos, espresso martinis, Cuban wine and craft beers.
