It was exciting to highlight some of these cultural connections through food, drinks, and cigars from Cuba with local personalities in the video series," says Marcus  Morgan-Etty who is the owner and chef at Little Havana. Each video features the personality at Little Havana having a unique experience with Havana Club. https://youtu.be/AuBzc1QmJ0s Maame Adjei, best known for her role as "Zainab" on the hit TV series "An African City" and producer of the travel show "Girl Going Places" which explores the beauty and dynamism of Africa, learned the art of preparing the perfect rum cocktail with mixologist Johnson Ace Bartender.

Cigars are one of the symbols of Cuba, a symbol that some historians believe have actual ties to Ghana as the name of Cuba's capital city "Havana" may have come from enslaved Africans working on tobacco plantations who called the leaves "Ahaban", the Akan word for leaf. Little Havana restaurant and bar offers the experiences featured in the videos to all patrons including curated rum cocktails, Afro-Latino food and events such as Salsa dance, cocktail masterclasses and tasting sessions and cigar pairings that highlight Cuban and Afro-Latino culture.
