Embargo Republica,  Kings Road, London

New to Kings Road in London is the Cuban-themed bar and club, Embargo Republica, bringing a whole new chic and stimulating experience to the public.

The Kings Road venue, formerly known as Embargo 59, has been given a significant overhaul and expanded to provide guests with a true taste of the exotic, reinforced with the extravagant surroundings and comprehensive drinks menu.

The stylish venue delivers a glamorous interior, great music and a wide range of drinks to suit everyone’s tastes. The club was launched at the end of August, offering guests the chance to experience their first taste of Latin-themed pleasure. Since opening, the reviews have been very positive.

Boasting the largest rooftop in SW10, the space truly emulates a Caribbean island paradise and to complete this, an intoxicating mix of live music every week takes place to keep the party alive. Cuban culture is constantly reflected in this bar, with the live music, DJs and acoustic acts providing the perfect rhythms for lots of dancing. The sound system is first-class, guaranteeing the ideal clubbing experience.

General Manager at Embargo Republica, Andy Johnson said:

“We have gone all-out to create a tropical haven that oozes style and finery through the essence of Cuban al-fresco living. From the chilled-out vibe of the early evening, sipping rum in the cool air, to the all-out pleasure of dancing the night away to smooth, sensual beats; Embargo Republica simply screams enjoyment.”

Embargo Republica is entered through a cigar shop selling a wide array of Cuba’s finest cigars to enjoy on the terrace. The club itself boasts exposed brickwork and timber exterior, delivering an urban and contemporary feel, where graffiti adorns the whitewashed walls and vintage furniture is dispersed for people to sit down. The speciality Rum Bar greets guests with an incredible selection of Cuba’s favourite liquor, encompassing classics and the exotic.

Their bartenders are well-versed in the alchemy of blending breath-taking cocktails to tantalise the taste buds, in addition to an impressive premium Champagne menu, featuring vintages from the finest houses. A Cuban Kiss comprising Bacardi Superior rum mixed with mango puree and guava and lime juices is one of the tasty cocktails on the menu, finished with popping candy and an elegant little edible flower.

Ingeniously, the club has been designed with a concept of mixing grit and glamour, creating an urban yet tasteful venue. Relaxed and refined evenings turn into street-party mode with foot-stamping and lots of cocktail sipping! Embargo Republica ensures a comfortable yet exciting and upbeat ambience.
