Cuban legend Julio Cabrera built Miami's Café La Trova as the ultimate tribute to his homeland. This festive space in the Little Havana neighborhood showcases the island's historic bartending style. Dressed in stylish jackets, La Trova's bartenders perform acrobatic stunts with their cocktail shakers and strainers, tossing drinks in the air and occasionally pausing to play the band's beat. Trova is ranked 21st among the top 50 best bars in the world, it may be the best show in town, but the important thing is the taste of its drinks and food make it one of the best choices for an extraordinary dining experience.

And speaking of flavor, of Jewish and Latino descent, but born and raised in Miami, chef Michelle Bernstein is intrinsic to the city's culinary scene. For this concept in Little Havana, she partners with cocktail guru Julio Cabrera, and the result is extraordinary. It's a lively place buzzing with live music and décor that transports diners through decades of history, from Cuba to the Cuban experience in South Florida.

Classic Cuban drinks like Floridita's Hemingway Daiquiri Hemingway, also known as Papa Doble (light rum, maraschino, grapefruit juice and lime juice), are featured alongside cheeky nods to the mother island, like the Canineros Special, Trio Matamoros (straight barrel rum with cafecito cubano and a cigar). The menu includes classics like suckling pig with steamed yucca and mandarin mojo. Specialty dishes may deviate from the norm, but are exquisite in their sweet and savory mix: think seared foie gras with Spanish French toast, maduros and maple syrup. Digestifs, such as Hotel Nacional with pineapple rum and apricot liqueur, are a good way to quench your thirst.
