  • Description: International superstars Gloria and Emilio Estefan introduce BONGOS CUBAN CAFE, a unique blend of authentic Cuban cuisine and the nostalgia of Havana during 1950′s glory days. Presented in a setting of tropical deco architectural design, BONGOS CUBAN CAFE’s flagship location opened in late 1997 at Downtown Disney at the Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida followed by a new location in the heart of Downtown Miami, Florida.

    “We have the opportunity to showcase our rich Cuban culture with the rest of the world. Our Bongos Cuban Cafe (in Disney World) has had great success, and since this one (in Miami) opened we couldn’t be happier,” says Gloria Estefan.

    The Bongos Cuban Cafe in Miami, Fla. inaugurated in April of 2000. It came on the heels of the wildly successful Orlando, Fla. flagship location. It raises two stories at the plaza level of The American Airlines Arena and overlooks the port of Miami, Biscayne Bay, and the downtown Miami skyline. Bongos can be spotted from miles away because of the giant pineapple, which rises from the roof. The pineapple has become a well-known symbol for the restaurant.
