Six months after bringing the “sophisticated excitement of South Beach and the showmanship of a Las Vegas production” to International Drive, Mango’s Tropical Cafe says it’s surpassed its projections and announced the addition of some extra attractions to keep their momentum going
The first Orlando location of the Le Cirque brand was announced as the first new high-end tenant for the Mango’s Entertainment Complex. The restaurant will be International Drive’s highest, located on the 10th floor of the parking development.
From its’ opening date in December 2015, 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,” he adds.
Some of the numbers over the past six months according to Mango’s include:
· Admitted more than 500,000 guests

Over the next six months, Mango’s Tropical Cafe expects to build on its success.

In addition, new production numbers are being added to the dinner show, providing a different experience for guests each time they come to Mango’s Tropical Cafe.
