One of many in spots on the Malecon for the night action. Nice touch decor of a zoo mixed with the Noah's arch. They have frequent 2x1 specials on beer and margaritas - a decent buy, otherwise too expensive. Surprise fun: Don't be surprised if some fun-loving young ladies get up into one of the dancing cages on a dare... More

Me and my couple were kicked out of the club for holding our hands and because we are two men, not even kissing! I asked my money back then but they initially refused and after long discussion they gave it back to me. Incredible how they discriminate gay people and how they have been racist with no consequences.

I'm a 38 year old guy from Minnesota who happens to be gay. 2 weeks ago my 3 sisters &I were in Puerto Vallarta, and Friday night bar hopping led us to the Zoo. It seemed less pretentious than magdala less crowded than vaquita, had good musicx and the bouncer offered my sister a free drink. We all got drinks... More

...we enjoyed Zoo in the late afternoon before it gets loud. A couple frosty buckets of Dos Equis at a reasonable price and a great view of all the comings and goings on the Malecon. Our server was a flirty delight....he was just the right combination of cheeky and charming without being overbearing which is rare! No idea what the... More

This was one of the more strange nightclub experiences of my life. The place was filled with a bunch of 14 year olds standing against the wall beside 40+ year old people drinking cocktails while an 18 (I hope) year old girl danced in a cage. There was a 2 for 1 drink special going on but they did not... More

The 2 for 1 special is great if you're used to paying $7.50 for a beer .... I personally prefer to spend $1 for a beer and drink 8 for the price of one "Zoo Beer" ... a place for the rich and famous, but not for me Otherwise, the guys did a great job on their restoration ... the... More

Very small, dark and crowded. Hard to get a drink quickly and some of the men were creepy. Music was good.

Ive been going to the Zoo Bar for 15 years ive seen the staff change and some stay. Last year they tore down the old zoo and built a new one to compete with the other large fancier bars. At first I wasnt sure if I liked it. But after sitting back ordering my bottle of vodka for table side... More

This was an awesome club. Great service, pretty awesome atmosphere. We got a great deal, no cover, 2 for 1 drinks. Thanks for the fun night out! Refreshing change from the resort!

Music was ok but this is not the type of bar you would like to spend a few hours in. We got there past mid-night and it was very busy and everything was full of dirty soap.
