The brightest jewel in 1950s Cuban nightlife, Tropicana was a paradise under the stars where you could gamble, hear the finest mambo and jazz musicians, and ogle the extravagantly risqué floorshows. Nat King Cole played Tropicana- so did Josephine Baker. Americans-celebrities and suburbanites both-were drawn to its kinetic sensuality and tropical setting. And Tropicana remained a uniquely Cuban institution- unlike most Havana nightclubs, it operated free from the American mobs control.Journalist Rosa Lowinger and Ofelia Fox, widow of Tropicanas last owner, vividly portray the cultural richness and roiling social problems of pre-Revolutionary Cuba and take the reader on an intimate insiders tour of one of the worlds most glamorous venues at its most brilliant moment.
