Last week I was invited to a hard hat tour to check out the progress of Mango’s Orlando on International Drive, and discovered things were coming along nicely.
Mango’s Orlando is the first outpost of the popular Mango’s on South Beach in Miami. Mango’s COO Joshua Wallack intends to bring that Caribbean/Latin party feel to Orlando.
Mexico’s popular Spring Break party headquarters has opened it’s newest U.S. location in the heart of I-Drive’s southern corridor near the Orange County Convention Center.
By day, Senor Frog’s will be more family friendly, serving up a menu of Mexican fare. There will be games for the kids and a balloon artist wandering tables for dinner.
After 11pm, it will become a 21-and-over nightclub with live entertainment and a huge dance floor. Drinks are available in three sizes, including the gigantic yard stick size.
I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, but on Yelp it appears to be getting mixed reviews. If you’ve visited leave your opinions in the comments – we’d love to know what you think.
Senor Frog’s is located at 8747 International Drive and they’re open from 11am to 2am.
A growing number of Orlando eateries are offering a new entertainment option during meals: tableside magic.
