Mr. Hospitality’s El Tucán Hosts ‘A Night at Sahara’ Evening Pop-Up with Carmen Carrera, a Tribute to the Legendary Leslie Cohen

April 27 - 7:00 pm - April 28 - 12:00 am

Mr. Hospitality is thrilled to announce ‘A Night at Sahara’ at El Tucán, a Pride-month dinner party pop-up to celebrate the life and legacy of Leslie Cohen and her legendary New York City nightclub, Sahara. Notably, the first bar in New York City owned and operated by women for women, Sahara was also the first upscale women’s club that showcased women in art, politics, and music.

“Sahara represented a milestone along the arduous and ongoing road to gay and lesbian liberation, a turning point between the representation of gay people as perverse and sick to the beginning of acceptance and inclusion.” – Leslie Cohen (1947 – 2022)

Beginning at 7PM, on Wednesday, April 27th, El Tucán, the vibrant Brickell supper club will be featuring LIVE music, seductive performances, and an exclusively curated menu, poised to be nothing short of incredible. To commemorate this lively evening with the utmost glamour and extravagance it deserves, El Tucán will be hosting the ever-so iconic Carmen Carrera – TV personality star and transgender rights activist – who will take the stage to enchant guests with a stimulating burlesque performance. Throughout the night, DJ Willy Monfret will be spinning upbeat house music, keeping the party going until late in the evening. A special prix-fixe menu ($65pp+) will be offered during the night, which will include highlights such as the Wagyu Beef Tataki, Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon, Spicy Beef Tenderloin, and Truffle Bucatini Pasta, among many more El Tucán favorites. Diners are welcome to order a la carte as well.

In support of our LGBT+ community, a portion of the night’s proceeds will be donated to Equality Florida, a non-profit organization, dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community.
