Mango's Tropical Cafe

The food and drinks at Mango’s are about as awful as you'd expect from a classic Ocean Drive tourist mecca. However, Mango’s has some serious production value, and they put on a f*cking show. Around 8pm, the bar turns into a stage, where a flurry of back-to-back performers (who also pull double duty as servers) do everything from salsa dancing and Celia Cruz impersonations to a magic show. It’s delightfully weird, undeniably Miami, and actually much more fun than we expected. The dinner and a show package costs a little over $100 a person. Is that too much? Yes. But if you enjoy getting drunk off comically large mojitos that taste like gasoline and playing tourist every now and then, you too might have an unexpectedly good time at Mango’s.
