Coco Bongo, Mexico meets Las Vegas!
About Coco Bongo
Upon entering a series of escalators takes you up to the top of the club where you then make your way into the stadium style nightclub. The nightclub consists of a main stage high up to the front with a central bar which serves the dual purpose of drink service.
There are also convenient podiums for dancing on, two of which are high up either side of the stage for those exhibitionists.
If you’re wearing a short skirt ladies, watch out! Sometimes jets of carbon dioxide are shot up in the air by the bartenders. You may end up showing a little more than you intended.
The club also has three or so tiers of seating, with the lower areas having bleacher style benches and private tables occupying the upper levels. What seems like hundreds of waiters attend to the clubbers. A well-placed tip at the beginning of the night ensures you’ll get good service all night long and won’t have to queue at the bar for your drinks.
Coco Bongo Shows
The show begins around 11.00pm and is often opened by a Robbie Williams impersonator. Other look-alike mime artists include Michael Jackson, Madonna and Lou Bega (Mambo No 5). Set against a constant stream of bubbles, balloons, ticker tape, falling from the ceiling it’s a spectacular sight. Scantily clad dancers, trumpeters and drummers complement the acts.
There are also a couple of Cirque De Soleil style shows. These consist of artists who hang from sheets above the crowded bar and perform synchronized gymnastic and acrobatic routines. Beetlejuice and The Mask provide additional entertainment as they literally fly around the club. Not only that, they also dispense drinks of tequila mix direct from the bottle to willing mouths.
