The Havana Social Club is one of the premier venues in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to indulge in a wide array of rums; in fact, the restaurant has an entire menu dedicated just to the rum offerings. Try the signature Cuban Mojito, made from a “secret recipe” brought over from Cuba. The interior is small, but very swanky, with a sumptuous feel to the furnishings.
