Fire at the Cubano Renamed Le Perroquet in Petion-Ville

On Monday, April 4, 2016, a major fire ravaged one of the oldest hotel-restaurants "Cubano" in the upscale hilltop suburb of Petionville overlooking Port-au-Prince. "Cubano", the twelve room hotel was renamed as 'The Perroquet' (The Parrot) in 2012 where regular concerts and parties for promotion of traditional Haitian culture were organized and which was an integral part of Petion-Ville's night life. The hotel was situated on a great location, very close to the market street of rue Lamarre and had a unique combination of careful protection, informed guidance and local style. It was an easy-going guesthouse in the heart of Petionville. After the fire, only the walls of 'Cubano' remain among the charred debris.
