La Tropical / Salon Rosado

I need some more information on this place if anyone has been there recently. Is it easy to reach by a collectivo taxi? Are prices in CUC or MN? Is it fun ? etc :)

Thanks

Marianao - was that close to the agromercado ? Ahh - I miss those glasses of guarapo !

Is the place on 5ta in Santa Fe still open ? I remember years ago picking up someone in the street outside there who had been stabbed. Surprisingly Rex never complained about the blood stains in their car.

What's that place in Santa Fe called? There's a couple out there.

Was what close to the agro? The anfiteatro?

I didn't want to scare people by the way. Hope nobody read it that way. It got very bloody, but it was sort of an internal thing between guys who spend (too much?) time off the tourist track in Havana. And as any other major city in the world, bad sh.t happens in the poor neighborhoods. I felt bad for telling these late night street tales, TA is a really nice family oriented website and I don't want to scare anybody. Nobody going to Varadero, Guardalavaca, Old Havana or anything like it need to worry about guns and knives and all that.

Santa Fe - I can't recall - but it was right on the main highway (I think whilst it is still 5ta, before it changes its number). Not the place down by the sea.

Marianao - yes, was the anfiteatro close to the agro ? (Though on the other side of the road).
