Recently I was selected to plan a party for a group of friends who all celebrated their birthdays during the same week. I searched and searched for a venue that was both affordable and a lot of fun. When I concluded my research and made a few phone calls, I decided on Bongos Cuban Cafe. This restaurant is absolutely huge and is situated in Downtown Disney. This fact alone makes it a great venue as there are plenty of other shops and bars around to visit after a party. Additionally, if you are from out of town and are staying at a Disney resort, you can take the free shuttle service to Downtown Disney and you will not have to worry about driving after the party. Our party had about 16 people in it and we were seated at two large circular tables in the downstairs dining area. There was live music and lots of people dancing on the dance floor. The food at the restaurant was authentic Cuban food and was a nice change of pace from the everyday burger restaurants that most of us are used to. One of the best parts about Bongos Cuban Cafe is that the drink list is about as long as the food menu. The restaurant serves a myriad of custom drinks and also has a wide variety of beers available from around Latin America. I would definitely suggest this restaurant as an excellent venue for a party of any size. The restaurant does get very busy on the weekends so it is best to plan ahead and arrive early if possible.
