Little Havana

Hoy Como Ayer


2212 S.W. Eighth St.,
United States,

Latin hipsters with deep pockets make their way to this Little Havana dance club that offers live music and salsa dancing at South Beach prices. Popular with old-school Cubans when it was Cafe Nostalgia, the club now attracts a younger, trendier crowd, especially on Thursday nights. Called fuacata (slang for pow), Hoy Como Ayer's Thursday parties feature classic Cuban music mixed with modern DJ-spun sound effects. Consistent with its Calle Ocho address, the club's straight-out-of-Havana désign favors low lights, wooden decor, and black-and-white photos of the old country.
