My husband and I had a great time at this warm and friendly night spot ...We instantly felt like family. We enjoyed great music, dancing and service. This place had a "One of A Kind" artsy feel, with it's bold graphics and decorating. The Karaoke was fun, and only made better by the constant flow of couples dancing away to your tunes. When we return on our next trip to Puerto Vallarta, I know that my personal song list will be waiting for me, and all that will be needed after that is a "tall cool one", and the warm company of our hosts, Debra, Rick, and Javier..muchos wonderful...

Thank Pamela A

I am not big on writing reviews ever as I don’t normally think of places highly enough afterwards to take my time and write about them. There are of course exceptions and this place was it for us. We had partied hard the night before and were not even planning to repeat the evening. We walked by this place called Kokopelli. It caught our eye as it didn’t look like a club or restaurant yet it was both of those things and more. At first glance I guess we assumed it was an art gallery or something due to all the vibrant colors. Kokopelli has a warm entrance and a staff that is truly there for us to have a good time. They do not seem to care if we are tourist or locals. Their main objective is clearly displayed that they want everyone that enters to feel comfortable, relaxed and part of the family. We received a warm welcome from one of the owners Javier Banos. He is bilingual which is great because we don’t actually speak Spanish. He was polite, attentive and at all times engaged in the club along with attending the restaurant downstairs. We had a few appetizers which is truly terrific as most places do not like to comingle. We were so comfortable and euphoric that literally hours passed before we realized it was morning. We had danced so many great latin favorites, listened to their live band sing and actually allow regular patrons to go up and sing with them, karaokee without judgement and just outstanding mix drinks. I dont even recall a moment that I had to flag my waiter down. It was almost like personal private service at my table. Also important to me is airconditioning which the club had although some may argue not cold enough although from all the dancing it was hard to drop body temperatures. It as well has a pool table and although I do not care for it I thought it tastefull and in a controlled environment.

My wife and I decided to catch a taxi home so that we can rest. It dawned on my wife later that day that we forgot our tequila glasses in a bag at Kokopelli. At first we just shrugged it off as to oh well what are we going to do their just shot glasses. Later we decided to call Kokopelli and they said they had our bag there at the front. I told them that we would pass by around 5pm as we were going to Plaza Caracoal for movies with friends afterwards. Upon it being 5:30pm I had decided that cancelling with Kokopelli wasn’t really necessary as I had only mentioned going at 5pm as a possibility. The waiter from the night before was there at the movies with our bag of tequila shots and 4 courtesy drinks or the choice of 20% off our next meal. We thanked the waiter and offered him 50 pesos as thanks. He declined professionally and stated it was honestly his pleasure. Although Kokopelli is only like 5-7 minutes walking distance from Plaza Caracoal it was still very nice that theywould of sent the waiter to deliver. It is important to note that the waiter was great the night before when he waited on us and wasn’t paid 15-18% TIP. It was refreshing to see him like and or love his job. As my wife and I reflected about this vacation, I can honestly tell you that one memorable thing we discussed was our awesome night we had at Kokopelli. I hope to go there again soon as they have live band, karaoke, dancing and much more. Real shame that we found them with two days before we had to leave. Next year though you all better believe we will be going to KOKOPELLI ! ! !

Just got back from vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We dropped in at the Kokopelli Bar for a quick refreshing drink and ended up staying for hours. The owners were so accommadating and the drinks went down just fine. They also have great entertainment and a dance club if your so inclined. We had a blast. So if your in the area make this part of your to do's...
