Close your eyes, take a deep breath and be transported to the bygone era of glitz and glamour that will come to life at El Tucán, a new modern-day cabaret that reinvigorates the lavish dinner and show concepts of Havana, Cuba.
Located in Brickell, the venue will feature a range of musical styles from Afro-Latin to Parisian pop, bringing international DJs and emerging acts to center stage and creating the ultimate nightlife experience. In addition to an eclectic musical lineup, El Tucán will house a resident 12-piece orchestra, carefully curated by Grammy award-winning pianist, composer and producer Marlow Rosado, that is reminiscent of the big bands from the jazz eras of the 40s and 50s. Food will also be a mainstay at El Tucan, featuring lux libations and Caribbean and South American fare that uses hints of Amazonian ingredients that will be created by renowned Executive Chef Jean Paul Lourdes.
Bedecked with crystal chandeliers, gold-framed mirrors and crushed velvet accents, the intimate, theater-style venue will also be open late night, so partygoers can continue feting after-hours. With strong Latin influences ingrained into its cuisine and stellar musical programming, El Tucán will turn your dream of a modern cabaret into a reality. Here is more information about El Tucan :
According to Miami.com :
“El Tucán will feature live acts twice a night every Thursday through Saturday, as well as a resident 2-piece Latin orchestra hand-selected by Grammy award-winning composer, producer and pianist Marlow Rosado. New Zealand-born Chef Jean Paul Lourdes will curate culinary offerings inspired by traditional Latin, Caribbean and South American fare, while master mixologists Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab craft a diverse selection of artful and creative cocktails.” written by Amanda Mesa.
According to New Times :
“With a stage, dance floor, and two bars, the main floor of El Tucán is where all the action happens. Overlooking the pachanga on the second floor is a third bar and sitting area — which Menocal adds can “be privatized for up to 150 people” and has its own private entrance. Hidden beneath the staircase is the Green Room, a VIP room and bar reserved for performers and their entourage. But la pièce de résistance at El Tucán is the main bar. Not because of the selection of cocktails hand-crafted by Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab, but because of the original Murano chandelier overlooking the bar, which was shipped in from Paris.” written by LAURIE CHARLES.
