How to get there
Mango's Tropical Cafe is located on Miami's famed Ocean Drive, and this popular music venue is hard to miss if you look for its bold, neon signage. From Downtown Miami it's most convenient to drive—via I-95 to the MacArthur Causeway—though public transit is also an option. You can hop on the 119 bus from Downtown Miami; check the Miami-Dade Transit website for up-to-date departure times.
When to get there
Mango's Tropical Cafe is popular among tourists, so expect crowds during Miami's peak tourist season, and over the summer, when locals and visitors alike flock to nearby Lummus Park Beach. Since the venue is open late, show up on the later side if you want to party—particularly on typically energetic Friday and Saturday nights. If you want a better chance of getting seats with a prime view of the stage, plan to arrive earlier.
