For two nights on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd July, 6:45pm - 10pm, [Arthur's]( will be transforming into a Cuban paradise enveloped in live music and culinary delights that evoke the nonchalant and vibrant spirit of the Caribbean. Say buenas noches to a traditional Cuban Mojito on arrival made with plenty of zesty limes and refreshing mint leaves and feel yourself sink into the atmosphere of Havana.
