Dance Clubs: A unique Miami experience awaits visitors to this dance club's spirited location in the heart of South Beach. Situated on the waterfront right on Ocean Drive, Mango's Tropical Café offers a Havana heyday-style party where Latin tunes and live bands lure locals and patrons alike to the dance floor. There's dinner and a show happening here nightly, and crowds often gather from across the street to catch a glimpse of the dancers and theatrics. Entertainment includes everything from Salsa and Conga shows to a Michael Jackson "Thriller" tribute performance. Naturally made mojitos and daiquiris help guests cool off between songs.
Live Music, Late Night / After Hours: Experience the islands without leaving South Beach. You can't miss this place right on the water, where crowds bustle, music blares and tropical drinks are flowing. Enter the jungle-like atmosphere and you'll be amazed at the mural all over the building, which was painted by seven Haitian artists over a period of nine years. There's plenty of live music in the evenings; the cover varies according to the artist. Tasty Latin cuisine is served inside and outside, and there's a small dance floor. The spacious bi-level building accommodates big crowds, and the reggae and salsa music, along with scantily clad dancers, adds an exotic flair.
