Ball And Chain, the 21st century revival of the iconic 1930’s jazz club, has reopened in Miami’s historic Little Havana neighborhood. Welcoming back visitors and locals alike with live music seven days a week, the venue will soon feature a revamped bar menu with new cocktails and exciting programming. 


Historically known for its midnight conga line, salsa dancing, live entertainment and signature cocktails including world-famous mojitos, the Calle Ocho Old Fashioned and the Pastelito Daiquiri, Ball & Chain has returned with the best music, dancing and cocktails in South Florida. The acclaimed entertainment destination will also be adding a variety of new cocktails to its bar menu in the coming weeks. 


The storied venue will play host to the Ball & Chain Trio, a daytime band that plays daily from noon to 6 p.m., followed by renowned percussionist Miguel Cruz, who will headline seven days a week from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The club will also continue providing free salsa classes every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday at 9 p.m. The legendary pineapple stage and outdoor patio is scheduled to reopen later this year. 


Open daily for lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy the flavors of Cuba with classics such as Ropa Vieja, Chicken Fricassee and Camarones Enchilado. Diners can opt for handheld bocadillos like the Calle Ocho Burger and the Medianoche Sandwich, or enjoy a variety of tapas including Tropical Seafood Ceviche, Grilled Mahi Tacos, Congri Fritters and its signature Cuban Spring Roll.
