The Low Down


What to Drink: Make sure to try a specialty Cuban Drink; the critically-acclaimed Mojito Cubano, Daquiris or Cuban Libre should do the trick.

The Extras: Listen to salsa and Latin jazz Tuesday evenings and romantic bolero tunes on Thursday evenings.

WIne List: Bolero's reasonably priced wine list not only offers a dozen wines by the glass (all $5-$7), but also recommends a food pairing for each.
