Its exterior may resemble a nondescript building, but inside A Piece of Havana, a bright island world of flavor and charm awaits. Hot Havana Nights mean mojitos in every flavor, rich sangria and varied martinis, flamenco music and a live band every Friday and Saturday. Try the Havana Sampler if you're a beginner — a combo of Cuban turnovers, tamales, plantains, fried pork chunks, meat balls and fried yuca — and a seafood paella for an entrée. Dive into the moist tres leches cake after the savory fare or drool over the whole dessert menu. Friday nights a DJ rocks sets until 2 a.m., playing international favorites. And if you're brave enough, there's always a chance for an impromptu dance partner to sweep you off your feet. 11126 S. Tryon St. 704-588-7883. www.apieceofhavana.com.
