Events | Do NOT miss the BACARDÍ Paladar & Rum Bar pop-up

“Paladar (plural: paladares) is a term used in Cuba to refer to restaurants run by self-employers.[1] Mostly family-run businesses, paladares are fundamentally directed to serve as a counterpart to state-run restaurants for tourists seeking a more vivid interaction with Cuban reality, and looking for homemade Cuban food.” 

By now it should be no shock that we love BACARDÍ and their line of products. So, when we found out about their upcoming BACARDÍ Paladar & Rum Bar pop-up restaurant in Toronto, we knew we had to buy our tickets before they sold out.

Taking place on October 28-29th at Cold Tea Bar in Kensington Market. The space will be transformed to embody an authentic Cuban dinning experience alongside delicious rum and rum based cocktails. Food, fun & delicious cocktails? Sign me up!


To celebrate the BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Maestro and the newly re-packaged BACARDÍ Ocho Años rum, Bacardi will bring together the culinary power houses of chef Matty Matheson, of Parts & Labor, and Miami-based third generation Cuban chef, Eileen Andrade, of highlyacclaimed Miami restaurant Finka Table & Tap.

As mentioned, this event is the hot ticket to have right now in Toronto and will only take place for two days. For $75 a person, you will be treated to a food, cocktail and entertaining experience like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It’s one of the many reasons we have already grabbed our tickets before they are all gone and I encourage you to do the same!
