Cabo San Lucas is a night owl's paradise, with a host of great bars, clubs, lounges, live music venues and other after dark diversions. The two best nightspots, El Squid Roe and Cabo Wabo, have been open for more than twenty years and are still going strong. Squid Roe is the best place to make new friends and do jello shots at three in the morning, while Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo boasts the best live rock and roll in town.
The heart of the nightlife district in Cabo San Lucas is centered around Plaza Bonita, and this high-density, high-energy strip is home to many of the city's best late night clubs, including Squid Roe, Mandala, Pink Kitty. La Vaquita, Baja Junkie and Rockstone Tavern. DJs, dancing and high-end bottle service rule at Mandala and Pink Kitty. Rockstone, meanwhile, offers nightly live music and excellent pub-style comfort food.
Beer lovers will be drawn to Baja Sur's first craft brewery, Baja Brewing Company, which now has three locations in Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, including a rooftop aerie at Cabo Villas overlooking Médano Beach, and a scenic spot on the Marina at Puerto Paraíso. Nowhere Bar remains the most popular haunt on the Marina, however, with excellent happy hour deals and the best ladies' night in town.
