The area is quite empty until 2pm’ish. The prices are expensive and it seems the store almost sell the same things. Coco-bongo was interesting to see. We did not attend due to the $85.00 cover charge. I guess you are paying for the experience.

Very convenient location in the hotel zone near Coco Bongo. Most notably the Hard Rock Cafe and a few other restaurants are located here along with some shops. It was very crowded at night with people just hanging around.
