About Yambu

The food takes you on a journey from Central America to South America.

YAMBU Café and Bar in Elizabeth Street, Hobart, is so much more than food and drinks. YAMBU, opened in September 2017, is a cosy hub for the appreciation of all things Latin American, including Latin music, dance, culture, conversations and of course Latin American gastronomy.

YAMBU hosts regular live music and dance events, long-table dinners with guest chefs, tequila tastings, art exhibitions, music documentaries and comedy nights just to name a few.

Why "YAMBU"?

Yambu is a song and dance from Cuba, played on congas, wooden boxes, and other small percussive instruments. It is played in a traditional tempo championed by the older generation to exaggerate their aches and pains before dancing like youngsters. Yambu was one of the first rhythms Elias learnt while studying percussion in Cuba.

A line often used to finish a YAMBU song is "aqui entre las flores" meaning "here, between the flowers". That line is YAMBU in a nutshell.

Yambu is styled with the bright, bold and happy colours of Latin America. "The look and feel is simply a representation of the happy place in me"

Elias Solis, Owner
