Photos of Ball & Chain

Today’s Ball & Chain on Calle Ocho is a recreation of a 1930s hotspot that initially inhabited the same building and hosted jazz legends such as Billie Holiday, Count Basie, and Chet Baker. Ball & Chain provides for a lively night out no matter the occasion, with a beverage menu crafted by the greatest mixologists at the Regent Cocktail Club, daily live music, salsa dance instruction, and a legendary outdoor stage in the shape of a giant pineapple. The Ball & Chain is a reproduction of a 1930s hotspot that initially inhabited the same area and hosted jazz legends such as Billie Holiday, Count Basie, and Chet Baker. The Ball & Chain, located across from the historic Tower Theater, has a rich history that includes Jewish and Cuban cultural influences. The bar menu, devised by the greatest mixologists at the Regent Cocktail Club, has a mix of classics (margaritas and mojitos) and new-wave cocktails exclusive to Ball & Chain. We recommend trying the Mojito Criollo (made the traditional way with the mint leaves left intact for enhanced aroma and more sugar), the Canita (white rum, lime, house-made honey syrup, Guarapo or sugarcane juice, sugarcane stick), and the Pastelito Daiquiri (white rum, lime, house-made honey syrup, Guarapo or sugarcane juice, sugarcane stick) (pastelito-infused aged rum, lime, simple syrup, and a side of pastelitos or guava pastries). While you won’t be able to eat a full dinner at Ball & Chain, the restaurant’s menu of tiny bits makes for excellent bar snacks. If you order enough, you might have a fantastic tapas-style supper. The deep-fried layers of roasted pork and ham in the Cuban sandwich rolls and the fried plantain chips are sure to delight. Who was on stage at Ball & Chain? Who didn’t? This is a better question. From Count Bassie and Nat King Cole to Tito Puente Jr. Most of the country’s top jazz musicians have performed at Ball & Chain.
