The Best Hotel Bars in Los Cabos

Chris Sands | February 01, 2018

When people think bars in Los Cabos, the first image tends to be a boisterous live music venue like Cabo Wabo, or a beachfront cantina with iced buckets full of Corona. The cape cities boast plenty of variety when it comes to drinking spots, however, from brew pubs and beach bars to martini lounges and jazz clubs. Some of the best bars, in fact, are found in area hotels and resorts.

Todos Santos Inn

Why it made the list

Although best known for its on-site restaurant La Copa Cocina, with its breezy patio and charmingly decorated Iguana Lounge, the Todos Santos Inn also houses an excellent bar. Like everything else in the historic property, originally built in 1872 as an estate for a sugar baron, it evokes a simpler and more elegant period, from its beautiful olden wooden bar to its vintage furniture and accents.

Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa

Why it made the list

Grand Solmar is not the only resort in Los Cabos with a well-stocked swim-up bar, but its Las Olas Pool Bar may be the only one that offers tables and bench seating in the pool for the ultimate in relaxed restaurant service. After drying off, guests are welcome to enjoy craft beers and creative cocktails in the elegantly appointed Sports Bar, which shows all the latest live sporting events from the U.S., and around the world.

One&Only Palmilla

Why it made the list

Famed for the “Mexiterranean” fusions of Chef Larbi Dahrouch, Agua at One&Only Palmilla also claims one Los Cabos’ finest sipping spots. Framed between the patio dining area and a one of the ultra-luxury resort’s infinity pools, the palapa-topped bar with its stained glass accents and colorful chandelier looks out over a vast blue expanse of the Sea of Cortés.

The Resort at Pedregal

Why it made the list

For elegant beverage service and spectacular surroundings, it would be hard to improve upon the Champagne Terrace at El Farallón, a market-style seafood restaurant perched cliffside above crashing Pacific Ocean waves. In addition to its signature French bubblies, the Champagne Terrace offers an array of creative cocktails, mostly of the martini variety. The Mexican Perfect Martine with mezcal añejo, agave syrup, lemon, and thyme is particularly recommended.

Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa

Why it made the list

Picturesque views, pool tables, pizzas, and a huge selection of international beers are the main attractions at The B, the wraparound bar located just below lobby level at Casa Dorada. The hip watering hole’s most impressive offerings aren’t listed on any menu: fresh sea air and gorgeous looks at the resort’s enormous swimming pools, at the crowds thronging popular Playa El Médano, and the Sea of Cortés and half-mile Land’s End headland beyond.

Las Ventanas al Paraíso

Why it made the list

The national spirit of México, tequila, is a major draw at many area bars, a few of which possess collections numbering well over 100 labels. The Tequila & Ceviche Bar at Las Ventanas al Paraíso has one of the better collections in Los Cabos (over 200 varieties of tequila and mezcal), and ups the ante even further with certified master tequiliers on hand to help guests determine their personalized flavor profile.

Barceló Grand Faro Los Cabos

Why it made the list

With a name like Barceló Grand Faro – faro is Spanish for lighthouse – an on-site nautical tower is practically a must. This beachfront resort in San José del Cabo’s Zona Hotelera makes the most of its signature architectural detail, using it to house scenic sports and sushi bars. The Sea of Cortés views are predictably stunning from the Sky Sports Bar, breathtakingly so during the sunset hour. Televisions behind the circular bar are tuned to the latest games, but are far less interesting than the seemingly limitless vistas fanning out in every direction.
