Speak to anybody in Liverpool and you'll hear only good things about Liverpool's trendy Alma de Cuba. Whether you're here enjoying live music, regular samba dancing or a sit down meal in this luxurious converted church, you'll be in for a treat.
It does get packed over the weekends so expect a queue outside on Friday & Saturday nights. Very popular for dining and drinkers of all ages. Strict door policy so I suggest you get there early over the weekend nights. Some great nights and events get held at Liverpool's Alma de Cuba including:
Musica en Vivo!
Live music every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7:30pm.
Every Friday & Saturday night from 11pm with sensational Samba dancers and resident Dj.
Sunday Service Gospel Brunch
with live gospel choir. Brunch runs from 12-6pm every Sunday!
Serious club vibes on Friday and Saturday nights, lovely ladies and doormen seemed fair. I'd say more of a mature crowd so if you're a little older should fit right in with a mixed gathering of ages.
Poor. 5 for dinner. 4 cold main courses, 1 was 20 mins late. The entertainment was a bit embarrassing. Only 2 entertainers with one girl dancing her socks off. The other chap didn't know his left foot from his right. There must be better places in Liverpool. Don't waste your money or your time here.
This place is a lovely place to go on a night out, the cocktails are bloody brilliant — I never want to leave when I get inside.
In February, we booked for a hen party of 16 for July 9th 2016. We specifically asked for tables on the altar either side of the DJ. When we arrived we were given two booths, in what was essentially a corridor, with a kitchen leading off at one end of our booths and the toilets leading off at the other end.
We were told that we had been put there because they thought we would like to be together. They did not contact us to inform us of their decision. The Manager was unhelpful and unsympathetic he offered us no alternatives or compromises.
I spoke to him this morning. He informed that under no circumstances would he provide me with a customer complaints policy. He then later admitted that there wasn't one. I asked who I should contact at their Head Office address which is on the website. He said that had now closed down and that I could not complain to the owners. He was rude, defensive unsympathetic and appeared to have no customer service skills. I stated that perhaps he could refund the difference between the £600 we had paid in advance and the amount we had spent, as a gesture of goodwill. He categorically stated that there would be no refund.
Alma De Cuba last Friday for 10:30 to watch the petal shower. It sounds really cheesy, but the bar is pure class and great crowd, lovely ladies, and well dressed blokes for the women.
Myself and three friends went here as we were told this was the place to be at. The barman was friendly and looked after us all night and we had a great time and the music was amazing. We danced all night long :-)
If you like standing near the bar and looking cool over the weekends, Alma de Cuba is a must visit venue when visiting Liverpool. Much prefer a good student pit but each to their own.
