The Red Coconut Club is a venue for dancing and drinks at Universal CityWalk, located at the top of the escalators that come up from Cold Stone Creamery and Red Oven Pizza Bakery. It’s been known to change themes recently, celebrating whatever major season or event is happening around Universal Orlando Resort at any given time.
