Tropicana Beach Club was once occupied by Guananara, now has been transformed into a concrete jungle paradise. Yes, Believe it! Tropicana has brought the tropics indoors, complete with 30ft palm trees, boasting sound effects of the sea, men in trunks (who looked like they had stepped right out of an Abercrombie and Fitch ad)
I was lucky enough to attend the launch party and wayhey, what a night it was! As soon as I walked through the double doors, I was greeted with a glass of prosecco with a full view in the middle was a pool like area and surfboard limbo was taking place (imagine that) I thought to myself I have to get myself in on that and give it a go.
Tropicana Beach Club stocks a treasure cove of rums with over 50 cocktails to choose from. On the night they had complimentary drinks on offer: Jager Storm, Tropo-colada, Sol Beer, Prosecco and Alisios wines.
I went for "She don't love me lychee used to". Which consisted of Tanqueray Gin mixed with Lychee, Sugar and Lime. and the "Flamingo" which consisted of Brugal Blanco Rum, Martini and Passoa shaken with elderflower, fresh lime and apple juice.
Every time a sharing cocktail drink came out which was either a palm tree, a giant pina colada or a 3ft yacht, there was a celebration with sparklers and the entire team would flock to the middle and dance before delivering to the chosen party.
The entertainment was on Fleek. I am a fan of all things carnival, the dancers were dressed in sequinned carnival costumes (think Rio) and swaying us with their dance moves. Dj Fresh was on the decks playing some floor fillers that certainly got the crowds going. Later on, we were treated to Cabaret performances and Caribbean-style steel drums.
Overall Tropicana Beach Club is an upbeat and exciting night out. Great for large groups, perfect for a hen do, Christmas party, a birthday or as an alternative night out. So guys take your squad and enjoy!
