UNDREDS of rev­ellers are set to party like never be­fore in Huddersfield town cen­tre tonight as a £1m Cuban bar and restau­rant of­fi­cially opens.

Revolu­cion de Cuba, (RDC), on Cross Church Street has taken months to bring to fruition but gen­eral man­ager Josh Childs said he is de­lighted with the spec­tac­u­lar re­sult which has trans­formed Herbert’s Bar and a char­ity shop into one of the town’s big­gest bars and eater­ies.

“There will be live mu­sic and we can pro­vide a fun at­mos­phere for at least 450 peo­ple.
