Popular Orlando nightclub is a destination for Latin flavors

ORLANDO, Florida – Located in the heart of the tourist area of ​​Orlando, Mango’s Tropical Cafe offers a melting pot of cultures and traditions of its Latin music to its dancers.

“Mango’s has a bit for everyone,” said José Vásquez, senior director of operations for the Orlando site. “We are inclusive. We love everyone from all over the world to come join us.

The nightclub and restaurant are known for their lively entertainment and tropical decor – palm trees and colorful murals greet guests from all over the world.

Mango’s Tropical Cafe has been a Florida landmark for 30 years.


The owners are David and Joshua Wallack, a father-son duo from Miami, who expanded their vision into the heart of the Orlando tourist destination on International Drive.

The original Mango’s Tropical Cafe opened in 1991 in South Beach, Miami, and in 2015 the owners opened a second location in Orlando after realizing how quickly Central Florida was growing with a diverse population.

“[Joshua] brought his dad and he showed him the area, he showed him the land and his dad was: you know what, this is the middle of International Drive, this is where the future will be, ”said Vásquez.

The 55,000 square foot building offers dance performances with people from several countries who want to have fun.

“They have to be able to dance, they have to be able to entertain, they have to be able to throw a party every night,” Vásquez said.

And providing entertainment is what David Wallack is known for. Prior to starting the Ocean Drive location in Miami – the building was actually a holistic care facility for the elderly where it treated the elderly with music, comedians and singers before moving the place to the popular tourist dance club destination that it is today.
