OUR HISTORY AND MISSION . . .
Original location on Washington Street in Providence
In less than six short years, the Cuban Revolution has established itself as an icon in the Providence restaurant scene and our reputation now extends far beyond Rhode Island.
The Cuban Revolution is much more than a place
to find great food at a great price with great atmosphere. We honor the revolutionary spirit of individuals who struggle against tyranny and oppression, fight big government and corporate greed, while giving their lives in the fight against injustice -- where ever it exists.
We provide a spirited counter-culture environment reminiscent of a 1960s coffee house with the passion of a Latin beat. We promote individual freedom and challenging the status quo.
Original interior on Washington Street in Providence
We honor those who have fought in the name of revolution.
And we openly question the sordid history of US policy and the
economic embargo directed against Cuba and its people.
Our food, decor and the music you hear are specifically selected to set the stage for a return to an era when challenging the norm was the norm, when individual expression was rampant, and the zeal and promise of revolutionary Cuba filled the air.
Borne of a desire to rid Cuba of the US supported dictator Fulgencio Batista who ran Cuba as a Mafia-controlled "Latin Las Vegas," the Cuban Revolution was a popular rebellion of the masses led by the charismatic Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Athough it’s primary goal was to rid Cuba of decades of corporate and political corruption fueled by the heavy hand of American imperialism,
it sought to restore basic human rights and an identity to a beautiful land of proud and distinguished people completely independent of the corporate interests of the United States.
Although we sympathize with those whose lives may have been horribly disrupted by the Revolution, we blame a failed and misguided US policy that for decades supported the tyranny of Batista while allowing the Mafia to run wild... notwithstanding the subsequent failure of the US to embrace the Cuban Revolution and the US historical inability to support an independent and vibrant Cuba.
