Coppelia & the Boom Boom Room.
The other night, my girl Maria and I wanted to have a night out on the town. So we first stopped by Coppelia, a cuban restaurant I am newly in love with that exudes old Cuba to it’s finest. I was in LOVE. The walls were adorned with paintings and photos of Cuba, classic cars, flags. There were also old-fashioned mid-century dining tables and GOD..the food was so delicious. I ordered a Cuban sandwich and I have been craving it ever since. I am very picky about my cuban sandwiches and I have to say this is hands down one of the best I have had in this city. The service was lovely as well. I actually plan to return on Wednesday with my friend Danielle and I can’t wait. After we got some grub we were off to the Boom Boom Room at the Standard hotel to meet up with my friends Andrea, Nina, and Nazir. It was nice to zone out at a beautiful venue and enjoy drinks and a good conversation. I haven’t been out in a while so I definitely dolled myself up in a vintage dress that had been collecting dust in my closet. I was so happy to finally put it to use. It was a really good night..Check out more details and photos inside.Coppelia was full of Cuban culture. I was loving every little detail about this place.Maria got this shot with her phone. I was ready to eat!My plate after 2 seconds.Maria and I in the elevator of the Standard hotel, being silly.The beautiful Boom Boom Room.This dress is about 6 or 7 years old and this is the first time I have worn it. Felt so good to put it to use in such a beautiful place. I wanted to mix the film noir feel of the 1920s with this goddess-like look. I like to mix and match different images, cultures, and eras together. I was drenched in vintage from head to toe.We kept warm and toasty from the cold rain by sitting next to this fire-place.This makes me realize I have such pretty friends lol ❤
Love this picture of my friend Maria!
