Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center is part fine arts gallery and part music lounge. Visitors can view an extensive collection of Cuban art from 1800-1958, then head to the bar for fine Cuban drinks and dancing.
Its founder, Roberto Ramos, escaped Cuba by boat in 1992, taking a small collection of art with him. He managed to save his artwork from going down with his ship until he was found by the U.S. Coast Guard, whom he credits for saving both his life and his art. That artwork became the basis of the Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center.
Ramos believes in experiencing Cuban culture through immersion of the arts, combining the aural with the visual and pairing them both with a good mojito. He has dedicated his life to persevering Cuban art, music, culture and history.
