    After 15 years, Bongos is saying goodbye to the American Airlines Arena.

    The iconic Miami restaurant will close its doors at the end of June.

    Owners Gloria and Emilio Estefan have decided not to renew their lease at the property, although the Bongos concession stand inside the arena will remain.

    The Estefans are working to develop property in downtown Miami near the Adrienne Arsht Center, where they plan to move the Miami Bongos.

    The move will not affect other Bongos locations in Hollywood and Orlando. A Las Vegas location is currently in the works.
