Vicente’s Way

I’ve always wanted to go to Cuba. I love their music. The beaches and hotels are gorgeous and, hey, what about all those cars from the fifties? Talk about a dream cruise. Well, now you can experience a little bit of Cuba right here in the D’.

Vicente’s Cuban Cuisine restaurant, located on Library St., is a magnificent splash of Cuban culture. Decorated in bright tropical colors it boasts some of the best ethnic food downtown. There is also a little deli off the main entrance where you can enjoy mouth watering Cuban sandwiches.

The real secret of Vicente’s though is not just the menu. It’s the music and entertainment! Think Hank Williams saying “Do ya wanna SALSAAAA?? Every Friday and Saturday night you can salsa dance till’ you wear off the calories you just consumed. Oh my. The music in intoxicating. Floats into your ear straight to your heart and before you know it, you’re out there like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. You can cut the atmosphere with a knife.

On Saturday nights, beginning at around 8:30 PM, there are authentic Flamingco dancers that tease and delight you with clicking fingers and swirling skirts while they stomp their boots on the wooden dance floor. Afterwards don’t be surprised when they invite volunteers to come up to the stage for some impromptu salsa lessons. Vicente’s mission couldn’t be any clearer. They want you to have a great and memorable time while you’re there.

Co-owner, Viincent Vazques, is the quinticential smoozer, greeting guests with a smile and a personality that is guaranteed to make you feel at home. His future plans include starting a shuttle service. Named T-3, it will include three busses. Holding up to thirty passengers, they will take you to venues, private parties and pub crawls. His idea is to bring the downtown experience easily to metro detroiters. Of course Vicente’s will be on that list!

    I think, Cuba is very interesting country.
    What about me I like to travel.I have just returned from Cyprus and I want to tell you it was unforgettable! The fabulous ocean, the constant sunshine and great weather all the time and all those moon-glades and sunsets, comfortable Cyprus Hotel and pool, amazing Cypriot evenings and wine tasting certainly left a track in the memory.
    You see, the life is too short to lose a single day of it.
