A little bit of Cuba and Salsa in Gloucestershire
Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

My wife is Cuban and I'm half Spanish, we want to open a traditional Cuban Bar with live music, good Cuban food and Salsa lessons.

My wife who is Cuban, our local Cuban friends and I have been talking about doing this for some time, but funds have always let us down. We want to bring a beautiful piece of Cuba being the culture, the music and food to Gloucestershire. We have family singers, connections to great bands, salsa teachers being the wife and friends and some great cooks. There is nothing like this any where we know, there is a chain but when you go it's not really Cuban. This will be as authentic as you will see being in Cuba.

This place will bring jobs for young and old, a great venue for young and old, some live Cuban music, authentic dancing and teaching people to salsa. 

Soon as we have enough funds we will look for the venue and lease it, we have already started looking.

The funds will be to decorate the bar Cuban style, marketing, stock and probably towards staff wages for the first month.

People who invest will have a life time of free food and drink when ever they come to the bar, we will also look to all investors to put names in a hat for this new exciting place to enjoy a piece of Cuba.
