Mango’s Tropical Cafe Celebrates 6 Months On International Drive
Mango’s Tropical Cafe has proven to be a hit over the last 6 months but then again maybe it was a hit even while it was getting built, thanks to the awesomeness of Mango’s Miami location and the many posts from myself and fellow bloggers. Mango’s has prime location in the heart of the tourist corridor, with its bright vivid colours it’s really hard to miss.
Just six months after bringing the sophisticated excitement of South Beach and the showmanship of a Las Vegas production to International Drive, the newest nightlife destination has surpassed its expectations and opening goals.
More than 500,000 people have moved to the Latin rhythms, indulged in smooth Miami mojitos, dined on Cuban-inspired delicacies and showcased the demand for an entertaining nighttime experience.
“We knew there was nothing like this in Orlando and the results from our first six months show how this entertainment concept works,” says Joshua Wallack, COO, Mango’s Tropical Cafe. “Every night, our complex is filled with guests who stay an average of two to three hours enjoying the show. There really is nothing else like this in Orlando.
“From couples looking for a romantic evening to conventioneers looking to unwind to families wanting something different, Mango’s Tropical Cafe has proven to be a success,”
“There’s no better place, beautiful women, great food and Vole shots all night. Bottom line, Mango’s is a great time, In South Beach or Orlando dale,” said Armando Perez, better known as International Superstar Mr 305 Pitbull.
