Experience the newly reimagined El Tucán, a sophisticated restaurant and lounge concept with a dinner party unlike any other in the heart of Brickell. Boasting warm, tropical vibes, the new El Tucán incorporates a refined, modern design, Asian-inspired dishes and a chic, high-energy party atmosphere that provides the ultimate experience that defines Miami nightlife.
“The new El Tucán is a haven for locals and visitors who appreciate a refined, high-energy atmosphere, elevated cuisine and innovative cocktails, perfectly integrated to the beat of a sexy, global and diverse soundtrack provided by our resident DJ,” says Mathieu Massa, owner of Mr. Hospitality. “I want El Tucán to feel inclusive and intimate, but also vibrant and electric, like a never-ending party that embodies the energy of Miami.”
From the moment you enter El Tucán, you are transported to a mystical world designed to stimulate and indulge all the senses. As the night progresses, the tropical and glamorous atmosphere evolves into an intimate and seductive dance party amidst lush foliage and images of wild animals in the Amazon rainforest. A new state-of-the-art Pioneer DJ/Pro Audio sound system will enhance the experience, along with one-of-a-kind, advanced LED wall displays around the DJ booth and second floor balcony with tropical images that will create a magical atmosphere and build momentum as the party evolves into the late-night hours as the resident DJ sets the mood for what’s bound to be an unforgettable night.
Every table in the remodeled 150-seat, two-level elegant restaurant and lounge is the best seat in the house. The DJ booth has been redesigned and moved to center stage with an elevated VIP area behind it. In addition to the existing chandelier bar, there is now a new sleek modern bar in the center of the main dining room, directly across the DJ booth. The VIP areas, designed to accommodate large parties, are adorned with comfortable sofas, feline prints, textured wood, antique mirrors, oversized palm leaves and tropical colors, such as yellow, purple, green and gold, as are the other seating areas throughout the venue. The second-floor layout has been enhanced with comfortable chestnut and leopard banquettes that feel intimate and allow you to experience the DJ and surprise entertainment, including aerialists, singers and dancers, with unobstructed views. Artist Simon Vargas’ original murals depict a whimsical world of wild animals, including the Tucán, Callithrix monkey, black panther and cheetah, and lush jungle scenes along the walls.
The new à la carte dinner menu at El Tucán features a sophisticated twist on Asian-inspired specialties, incorporating authentic flavors and culinary components from Japan and Thailand. Signature Mr. Hospitality dishes include Tuna Tart, Spicy Hamachi Tacos, Wagyu Sliders, Truffle Mac’n’Cheese, Sushi Platter, Omakase Menu and hot stone style A5 Wagyu Kobe Beef. New dishes created exclusively for the menu at El Tucán include Pork Belly Bao Buns, Chicken Wing Lollipops, Chilean Sea Bass Satay and Crispy Fuji Apple and Chocolate Lava Cake.
