Havana Rumba is a celebration of the culinary genius of the island of Cuba brought to life by a team of passionate people. Owner, Marcos Lorenzo immigrated to the U.S. from Cuba in 2000 hoping to realize the American Dream. His humble beginnings included plenty of hard work and determination as he learned the U.S. restaurant business. A civil engineer by training he applies a technical approach to the daily operations of the restaurants. However, cooking is his new found passion!

In 2004, the first Havana Rumba was born in the heart of St. Matthews. In 2007 a new concept came to life: Mojito Tapas Restaurant. In 2010, the second Havana Rumba was opened in the heart of Middletown. The Havana Rumba & Tapas Bar opened in 2015, the original St. Matthews restaurant then moved to Shelbyville Road in 2019 and became Mojito in Havana Restaurant & Bar.

Today, Marcos Lorenzo’s four Cuban restaurants in Louisville represent the gold standard of Cuban cuisine in the Midwest. Come join us and experience the culinary delights that Marcos and his chefs bring to life. ┬íMi casa es su casa!
