Claustrophobes will probably not want to peel this mango—one of Ocean Drive’s most popular spots, this enclave of la vida loca shakes with the intensity of a Richter-busting earthquake. Mango’s is Cabaret, Latin-style. Nightly live Brazilian samba and other Latin sounds, not to mention scantily clad male and female dancers, draw gawking crowds in from the sidewalk. But pay attention to the music, if you can: Incognito international musicians often lose their anonymity and jam with the house band on stage. There’s a full menu, too.
