In the lobby it looks like a small, quiet, and boring place, but from the moment you get "inside" the main room you are located in a great stadium full of people from all over the world dancing and jumping with the rhythm of the DJ, which was a little bit better than the one at Daddy O's. The light show and the performers are amazing, and can be compared with the best international clubs. It closes at 7am, so you don't need to worry about when the party is going to end. I thought it was just a lucky night in a club, but I've been there three times and it's always the same. It was just great!

I was 35 and married when we went. I wish I had seen this place when I was 24 and single. A group of guys or gals looking to go out together to have fun and meet the other sex will not regret the price of admission.
The exit is very hard to find. Make sure you know where it is.

First of all, there are two cover prices for Coco Bongo: $15 for admission or $28 for all-you-can-drink. Outside, there’s always a huge line. Luckily, we were in the "VIP" line (thanks to our hotel), but it still took us 20 minutes to get in. Once inside, you are herded through this maze-like tunnel of dirty, moldy tarps, stairs, and an escalator. They also check to make sure you don't have video cameras (regular cameras are ok).
When you finally get to the club, the place does look impressive. It's huge, with people everywhere, including the balconies 30 feet up from the main floor. Due to the layout, everyone’s attention is drawn to the center of the main floor: in the "pit" is a square bar with 50 people dancing on it. Thousands of people in this "club" and only 50 are dancing. The music is pop, rap, techno, alternative. We shoved our way into a small corner (we were still being continually bumped by every person that walked by) and started looking around. Soon, the music stopped and the lights came up, and on a stage high above everyone, about 30 employees put on a dance show, complete with smoke and lights. The lights went down again and a scene from the "Matrix" was played out (to no music) on the bar using "actors" attached to ropes. This kind of stuff continued throughout the night.
The one drink I got a Dos Equis for $5. As for the "all-you-can-drink"? The only free drinks you get come in 8 oz plastic cups.
Eventually, we'd had enough of getting shoved around, so we decided to leave. We tried to go out the way we came, but that didn’t work and we got directed us to the OTHER SIDE OF THE CLUB. It took us a good 20 minutes to push and shove our way through hundreds of drunk, rude people to get out of there. After that, we were just happy we got out with our lives! (This was the very same weekend that that fire happened in that club in Chicago).
I am glad that we got to check it out, but I did not like it and would never go back. However, if you DO decide to go, look in coupon books for a coupon for a free T-shirt with paid admission.
