cuba libre restaurant & rum bar is dedicated to celebrating this great cuban heritage. We strive for continuing exploration of cuban flavors, music, art and traditions.
Cuba Libre opened its first location in Old City, Philadelphia in 2000, giving guests a passport to Cuba's intriguing flavors and culture. The restaurant's name, which translates to "a free Cuba," signifies a hope for the future of the treasured island nation.The cuisines of different ethnicities have been gently simmered in the cultural cauldron of Cuba to create what is now the Criollo (home-style) cuisine of the island. Blending native ingredients and cooking traditions with those of South America, Spain, Africa, Asia and several others, Cuban cuisine is a savory mix that reflects its colorful culture.
Cuba Libre is located on corner of 9th & H Streets NW in the Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington DC, right across from City Center. Street parking / meter parking may be available in the neighborhood. Several paid lots are close by, and valet parking is offered by a private company on Fridays and Saturdays.
