For nearly a decade, Mango's Tropical Café has brought the party to International Drive in Orlando with its popular dinner show, and lively nightclub.

The new restaurant brings a major change for Mango's, with Corazón by Baires offering dinner reservations from 5 to 10:30 pm daily.


From 10:30 pm, the space will revert to Mango's, with the legendary nightclub continuing to offer its popular club nights, lively fiestas, concerts, and more.


In addition, Mango's is set to introduce, KALI Ultra Lounge this summer. Located at the second level of the 55,000-sq-ft complex, KALI will have a separate entrance, with the ultra-lounge bar and bottle service offering an exclusive list of premium spirits, luxurious handcrafted cocktails, and entertainment.



Corazón by Baires will serve dinner Wednesdays through Sundays, with the new restaurant concept offering dinner reservations from 5 to 10:30 pm beginning on May 24. A Sunday brunch is also set to debut in the coming weeks.

The innovative partnership will deliver an iconic gastronomic experience with globally inspired Latin American cuisine.


From the gaucho-perfected grilling technique of grass-fed Argentinean beef to fresh seafood and pasta with Mediterranean influences and Asian-inspired dishes, Corazón by Baires' menu, created by Executive Chef Paulo Osorio, is ready for center stage.


The result is a remarkable international menu as diverse as the culture that inspires it. An extensive wine collection completes the ensemble.

The new Corazón by Baires restaurant is the result of a partnership between Wallack Holding, who manage Mango's Tropical Cafe in Orlando, and Baires Holdings.


In addition to the new restaurant within Mango's, Baires Holdings has also leased additional space in the adjacent Hollywood Plaza Garage for a future restaurant concept.


This space will also soon be home to Tom's Watch Bar, a huge new sports bar.


"Orlando is one of the world's most visited cities so, not surprisingly, we have been eager to expand here for a long time," said Sofia Koenig, general manager of Baires Holdings. "This partnership gives us an invaluable opportunity to successfully introduce our restaurant to a new audience. By sharing in Mango's expertise and knowledge of the market we will win the hearts of Central Floridians and of the thousands of travelers that visit Orlando every day."


"Corazón by Baires is aimed to be a favorite of locals, convention center attendees, and theme park tourists searching for late-night dining. It is in Baires' DNA to serve later into the evening than other restaurants to meet the needs of guests who wish to dine far after the sun sets," Koenig continued.

"We will create dazzling experiences right here in the I-Drive Entertainment District as we enter a new era for our destination. This kind of collaboration between our companies to create a united vision of Corazon is so rare and special. We are very excited for Central Florida to have a culinary powerhouse like Baires make such big moves into our community," Wallack continued.
