Lodging Lounges: The 10 Best Hotel Bars in Los Cabos

Given Los Cabos' abundance of high-end accommodations options, it should come as no surprise that many of the finest bars and restaurants are located onsite at area hotels. In fact, Me Cabo Hotel, a chic resort that boasts a privileged setting overlooking Médano Beach in Cabo San Lucas, is home to two of the hottest clubs in Baja California Sur. Nikki Beach Club provides the poolside scene of choice for Cabo's smart set, with weekend theme parties that showcase creative concepts, as well as drinks, dancing and world-class DJs. Neighboring Passion Club, meanwhile, is a favored late night landing spot for party cognoscenti.

Bar Esquina at the boutique Bahia Hotel & Beach Club is a congenial place to belly up for cocktails and conversation, and the food – particularly the gourmet pizzas – is superb. And yet another Médano Beach based hotel bar, The B at Casa Dorada, offers an upscale casual setting for beer and pizza, or snifters of cognac and a game of billiards after dinner. The best bet for beer lovers, however, is on the rooftop of nearby Cabo Villas, where Baja Brewing Company, the state’s first craft brewery, serves up perfect pairings like Peyote IPA with basil and blue cheese topped burgers.
