Brightline has partnered with Rail Events Productions to transport riders to Havana’s golden era with the Havana Rum Train this spring. Now your clients can experience a taste of the Cuban culture in Miami, while learning historical anecdotes of Cuba and Miami’s relationship.
Departingon each Saturday from April 4 through May 2, the 2-hour journey includes a night of live Cuban Jazz performances, dancing, and Cuban food plus drink offerings, all told alongside tales of Cuba and Miami’s intertwined history.
Guests begin the evening with a welcome mojito as they board the train listening to live Cuban jazz along the downtown Miami backdrop. As the train departs, more music awaits onboard when guests are taken through guided rum tastings paired with a curated menu of Cuban fare for a 1-hour train ride. When guests arrive back at Virgin MiamiCentral, the post party continues inside Central Fare with a live musical ensemble, costume dancers, cigar rolling, desserts and curated rum cocktails.
“As a Miami-based company, we enjoy incorporating Cuban-American culture into our train experience and delighted to have the Havana Rum Train return once again,” says Michael Hicks, spokesperson for Brightline in press materials. “This experience provides guests with an interactive way to gather with friends, go back in time and take in the history, sounds and cuisine of old Havana.”
Each ticket includes a welcome drink, rum tasting, food tasting menu, on-train experience, and a post party of live jazz entertainment, feather dancers and cigar rolling in Central Fare. Along with the ticket, guests will also receive two drink tickets valid to use at the pre or post festivities. Cash bars will also be available throughout the event. The experience starts at 6:45 p.m. with check-in and welcome drink. The train departs at 7:30 p.m. and returns at 8:30 p.m., when the evening’s events continue at Central Fare at Virgin MiamiCentral.
