Live music is an integral part of the rollicking Cabo San Lucas nightlife scene, with styles that run the gamut from rancheras and Latin jazz to good old-fashioned rock n’ roll. Most of the better known bars and restaurants offer live entertainment at least once or twice per week, and patrons at those that don't are likely to be serenaded anyway by roving singers, guitarists and the occasional mariachi band.
Cabo Wabo Cantina remains the area's signature live music venue, as it has been for the better part of two decades. Founded by former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar, Cabo Wabo features live music on a nightly basis, with occasional visits from rock and country royalty around the time of Sammy’s annual birthday bashes.
Cabo Wabo is far from being the city's only rock n’ roll themed option, however. Talented local bands and performers can be found throughout the downtown area: at restaurants like La Palapa; locals’ bars such as Cabo Lounge and Cabo Blue; and late night haunts like Jungle Bar and Rockstone Tavern.
Travelers of a more mellow disposition may prefer the jazz standards favored at Two for the Road, or Sunday afternoon trips to Cerritos, with tropical Latin jazz on the beach in front of a gorgeous Pacific Ocean backdrop.
