Tucked in the corner of SW First Avenue and SW 11th Street in Brickell, El Tucán transports guests to a time when cabaret was king. “It's like that Old-World feeling of dinner and a show,” describes Emilia Menocal, El Tucán's creative director. From the ticket booth at the door to the curtains that mask the grand entrance of the theater-style venue, everything about the lounge is reminiscent of 1940s Cuba with a modern-day twist. Trompe-l'oeil murals designed by New York artist and Emilia's cousin, Happy Menocal, cover the venue's walls.
