Centro El Mejunje
One of the most popular places for visitors and locals alike in Santa Clara. Mejunje is Spanish for 'concoction' and in this is a concoction of styles, tastes and people: the weekly program have days for traditional Cuban music (son) and dancing, trova, salsa, theater, poem reading, local rock bands, and drag shows. The bohemian-style courtyard in the middle of the ruins of a former hotel is a performing space with a bar. Admission fee is low, so lots of locals are in attendance to enjoy their favourite shows and have a good time. El Mejunje mainly promotes local talents, although performers and bands from Havana and Santiago often show up since the place is well known. Address: Calle Marta Abreu #12.
