Our Haute 100 list details the accomplishments of the most influential people in each of our markets—Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These people continue to make moves, so rather than waiting for the next Haute 100 issue to come out, we thought we’d provide you with regular updates on those Haute 100 members who are making headlines. The Estefans add a fifth installment of their famous restaurant branch at the Seminole Paradise.
Gloria & Emilio Estefan
Category: Power Couples
Company: Estefan Enterprises
What Made Them Haute: The Estefans are one of the most powerful couples in South Florida. They have effectively built an enterprise together, and everything they touch, in one way or another, turns to gold. They are ridiculously talented crossover artists, thriving business owners and successfully are minority owners of the Miami Dolphins. To add to the accomplishments, the Estefans are actively involved in the betterment of our community here in Miami as well as their home country of Cuba.
What Makes Them Haute Now: Earlier this month, the Estefans opened another Bongos Cuban Café at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. This is their fifth location to open in South Florida. The grand opening brought out some of the most recognized stars in Miami to the Seminole Paradise. Everyone from Lili Estefan, Felipe Vidal, Enrique Santos, Mauricio Zeilic and Candela Ferro, to name a few, came out to support the power couple’s new venture. With its intimately chic, yet comfortable atmosphere, the restaurant features white tables and textured seats, polished dark mahogany panels and a dual-sided main bar.
