The chain specialises in "authentic Cuban food and drink" as well as exotic cocktails such as Miami Vice Tiki Royale, Fire & Exile, Scorpion and Blue Hawaiian - with the focus on rum - the spirit of choice in Cuba.

Revolucion de Cuba takes its cocktails so seriously that it even has its own Bartenders Club - called The Cuban Bartender's Club.

According to the website, "The Cuban Bartenders Club began in 1924 and only the very best Cantineros from across the island were selected and invited to join.

"The club was supported by Bacardi from the very beginning and celebrated excellence in the career of cocktail-making.

"This respect for the skill of bartending, and for the drinks themselves, meant that the bartenders of Cuba were known as 'virtuous, elegant and the ultimate hosts'.

"We strive to keep the legacy of the Cuban Bartender's Club alive."

On the food menu, choose from dishes including paella de Cuba, pork and chorizo quesadilla and jerk chicken hamburguesa.

The chain, which is owned by Revolutions Bar Group, is also famous for their Cuban cocktail masterclass with the main focus being on rum.

When the bar opens, Brummies will be able to attend Cuban Cocktail Masterclasses complete with tasting pinchos snacks and a Cuban buffet.

Revolucion de Cuba bar will be just round the corner from Bodega Cantina which serves up a South American food and drink menu.
