Following a year of renovations under new ownership, Mangos, the popular Las Olas landmark, is reopening its doors to the public on February 14th and will be open seven days a week for lunch, dinner and musical entertainment from 11am to 2am. Members of the media are invited for a special soft opening on February 12th from 6pm-10pm. Kindly RSVP to Paige Bresky as indicated below. The official grand opening party will follow on Sunday, February 18 from 6pm-10pm.
All are welcome to attend and enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and music! Bruno Vaccari purchased the establishment from the legendary John Day in January 2017 with the goal of revitalizing one of the most iconic venues on the boulevard. Vaccari and his staff worked hard to maintain the mainstay and its original concept, while improving the atmosphere for a more contemporary and refined memorable experience.
A stellar staff and dynamic environment, along with superior customer service and masterful culinary delights will pump life into the city for all locals and foodies alike. Vaccari enlisted Alessandro Manzo (former GM of Segafredo Brickell) as General Manager of Mangos, which now includes a massively modern and chic interior. The venue comprises of a colorful dining section both inside and outside for those looking to pleasure their palettes.
It also includes a separate club area with two full bars, black leather couches, illuminated waterfall wall decor, multiple TVs, a DJ booth and white LED light-up tables for VIP bottle service and light bites. Skillful DJs, peppy dancers, live music and other variety acts will provide sensory appeal to all "Mangoers". For corporate events and private parties, there are several rooms available for rent, complete with the highest quality video, audio and lighting equipment useful for presentations and other entertainment purposes.
The menu at Mangos has also undergone a facelift, now boasting American fusion cuisine with bursts of Mexican, Peruvian and Italian flavors, all curated by award-winning Chef Francesco Giuzio (former Chef at Bocce in Midtown Miami). A diverse menu offers an assortment of options, ranging from an incredible selection of fresh whole fish to the most mouthwatering Certified Angus Beef.
The dessert spread is equally delectable, featuring favorites such as the “Mangos Cheesecake” staple. Whether you’re indulging in a quick lunch with your coworkers, having a small appetizer at the bar, or munching on a midnight snack in the club, the cuisine at Mangos is sure to rouse your taste buds!
