Kokomo Cabo

Excerpt from Nightlife article – Los Cabos Magazine Issue 5 – 1997-98.  Kokomo, a new club on the party circuit, only recently opened, has quickly become a popular spot. Kokomo features a big dance floor and great dance music. They have added a show featuring local dancers starting at around 8 p.m. The dance-party crowd usually hits this spot around 10:00 p.m., before they make their way up Boulevard Marina on the way to El Squid Roe.
Kokomo Cabo closed March 2001.

Excerpt from Los Cabos Magazine issue 5, 1997-98.
If your middle name is Party!, there are any number of locations to hit after the beach, and Rio Grill is among the best. This bar and restaurant is a favorite hangout offering great soft rock, reggae and a live band for most of the year. The marathon four-hour happy hour, starting at 4:00 p.m. could spell trouble, but they wisely provide free munchies. Don’t be surprised if the waiters swing the ladies at your table into a quick salsa. Larger than it appears, the Rio Grill features a big open patio and a sheltered dining under a palapa roof, in addition to the covered bar area.
