Tropicana Nights—Join Rosa Lowinger, art conservator, Cuban exile, and author of Tropicana Nights: The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Nightclub (2005), as she takes us back to the glory years of Havana’s most exhilarating cabaret. At Tropicana you could play the roulette wheel, dance to the latest mambo or rumba, or simply ogle the parading goddesses of the flesh. It was the brightest jewel in 1950s Cuban nightlife, and Nat “King” Cole, Liberace, Josephine Baker, and Carmen Miranda performed there before audiences that included Ernest Hemingway, Marlon Brando, and Joan Crawford.
