Celebrate Peter Moruzzi’s new book “Havana Before Castro: When Cuba Was a Tropical Playground” and relive the days of Rum, Rumba and Roulette.

Mixing period ephemera with amazing "then" and "now" photographs, the book recreates the Havana of the past, taking the reader on a visual journey from backstreet brothels and fabulous nightclubs to soaring mid-century Vegas style resorts, and everywhere in between.

Book Signing Featuring:

  • Cuban cocktails provided by 10 Cane Rum
  • Cuban hors d’oeuvres provided by Cuba Libre
  • Live Cuban music
  • Exhibition of vintage Cuban photos, postcards, and menus
