Located in Bushwick, Mad Tropical is an oasis tucked inside a Brooklyn warehouse with a focus on mono-seasonal citrus drinks and tasty Latin-American inspired eats by Donna Chiquita.

Mad Tropical opened in May 2017 inside of the former Tandem Space. Stylist Ingrid Ammann and Tender Trap's Ryan Virag & Darryl Nau want to carry the torch the iconic location and the spirit of the neighborhood. Mad Tropical is the place to get a delicious meal and drinks with friends during the week and the place to let the hair down and cut loose and boogie on the weekends.
Our back dance hall hosts weekly parties Thursday thru Saturday night. We've got DJ Dirtyfinger who kept things shaken at his weekly party at Tandem and is also one of the main DJ's at Tender Trap. (For full programing please check out out our events page)
Mad Tropical’s Kitchen is proudly inhabited by Donna Cocktail Club’s outpost, Donna Chiquita.
Donna Chiquita is serving Latin-American inspired cuisine influenced by the Californian upbringing and Honduran heritage owner of Leif Huckman. The recipes come from Chef Tristan Harrington, who cut his teeth with Salt’s Cure in LA and was impacted by the cuisine of the many Mexican taquerias and food trucks. Donna Chiquita pays homage to the fresh, flavorful & funky ingredients of Latin American cuisine.
