Bongos Cuban Cafe at the American Airlines Arena will be closing its doors later this month on June 28th. The Estefans will not be renewing their lease at the Triple Aye, and will instead open a new restaurant near the Arsht Center and will be called Estefan Kitchen.
This closing will not affect the other Bongos locations at the Seminole Hard Rock, the South Terminal at Miami International or the Bongos location in Orlando.
What this will signal is a huge piece of space at the American Airlines Arena that will be up for the taking and up for a complete and possible overhaul. Maybe by the Miami Marketing Group guys? Who knows. Stay tuned for more info.
