El Tucán is ending its dinner shows and switching to a nightclub

Did you ever get a chance to stop by El Tucán to check out their dinner shows? Well, if you procrastinated, we’ve got bad news: you missed your chance. The venue’s popular Latin cabaret and variety show is no more. Instead, El Tucán has transitioned into a full nightclub.

It’s a bummer. There wasn’t much in Miami like El Tucán, which channeled a gorgeous old Cuba charm and blended it together with patches of new Miami chic and French style. It was that rare Miami attraction that could appeal to both tourists and locals looking for a different sort of night out. There are still some other spots to catch live cabaret in South Florida, but Tucán was certainly one of our top picks.

This isn’t a funeral, though. El Tucán and its delightfully vintage interior live on in its second life as a nightclub—one of the only ones in Brickell, too. If you want to check out the new venue, El Tucán Nightclub will host Rick Ross on May 31. Sadly—or, maybe thankfully—we do not expect to see any nipple tassel routines from the headliner.
