    Okay I've been here 5 times now. The Zoo a.k.a. The Zoo Bar is my favorite club in all of PV. I first went in 1994 and it has been a hit consistently since then.

    Located on the Malecon where everything is happening after hours, the Zoo is a super fun place to get your groove on. It's not a place you go for conversation and drinks. People that go to the Zoo want to par-tay with a capital P. All ages go there all though it tends to be a younger crowd. It's all decorated in a jungle theme. There is usually a gorilla suit guy or two dancing around and pouring shots. There is a big cage that you can dance in if you're lucky - I finally made it in the cage last month...woo hoo!

    The music is loud and typically what's hot and current. Each time I've been it's a mix of reggaeton, hip-hop, r&b, reggae, and pop-crossover type songs. The dance floor is always packed. The drinks are a little less expensive than average (like $5-6 mixed drinks) and they almost always have a few 2-for-1 specials going so make sure you ask what the specials are as they aren't advertised. They also have the chicks with shot glass holster belts who for $8 (or $2 a shot if you're less brave) will pour shots of some alcohol punch down your throat, grab your head and shake it, and pinch your nipples. No, it's not a place for the timid, but if you say no they leave you alone. We say yes . . . when in Rome . . .

    The dance floor is in the middle and surrounded by tables and chairs. If you sit in the front you have a bird's eye view of the Malecon and ocean. It's nice because they have these massive windows that stay open and you can get a window seat and enjoy the breeze depending what time of year you are there. It's just a great place to go and dance, no holds barred. Some people get a little raw on the dance floor but that adds to the charm of the place. It's the total opposite of a Nikki Beach type club - it's not trendy or sophisticated - it's FUN!! Once I paid $5 to get in but the other 4 times it was free - guys too.

    We went twice in our wedding week. Right after our wedding we went to Dreams to change and met some of our guests at the Zoo and partied until 6 a.m. If you want to let loose and party like it's your 21st birthday - this is your place.

      Hey Jamy-
      How far is this place from Dreams? I'm assuming it's a pretty reasonable cab ride away?

      I think I may suggest it for our group of friends when we go down for Monica's wedding. Sounds like a blast to me!! :-)
