  • 1. Blue Marlin Ibiza

    Miami meets Cabo at this restaurant, bar, and club with an over-the-top feeling of luxury. White gauze canopies shade plush sunbeds and lounge chairs around multiple swimming pools, while DJs spin until 6 pm daily. Their sushi menu pairs well with a fruity cocktail and will help keep the buzz under control.

  • 2. Slim's Elbow Room


    Slim's calls itself "the world's smallest bar," and you'll be lucky to get a seat at this kitschy four-seat space that plays honky-tonk music and serves $3 beers and tequila shots. Signed dollar bills line the walls and ceiling, and a buzzing, standing crowd loiters out the door and onto the Boulevard Marina sidewalk each evening, vibing off its energy.

  • 3. Wendlandt Cervecería


    For a casual yet refined bar scene, this chic spot is a favorite of Ensenada's many vintners, chefs, and brewers. Showcasing local beers from the region, as well as wines from nearby Valle del Guadalupe, the friendly owners have literally mastered the craft with their own cervezas that landed them the titles of Mexico's best beer in 2015 and 2019. Beer tastings in their brew pub are available by reservation only. If you're hungry, Wendlandt serves elevated bar food using local ingredients. The nondescript bar is simply marked by their logo and an antique door.

  • 4. Azul

    As far as posh hotel bars go, it's hard to top the Hilton Los Cabos' Azul, whose terrace overlooks the Sea of Cortez. There's nothing raucous here, just intimate conversation over margaritas and other agave-based spirit cocktails. Mexican antojitos (small appetizers) and raw snacks provide the perfect complement.

    Carretera Transpeninsular, Km. 19.5, The Corridor, Baja California Sur, 23452, Mexico
  • 5. Baja Brewing Co

    Playa El Médano

    The Cabo San Lucas branch of the microbrewery in San José del Cabo shares the same menu and selection of beers on tap. Yet the open space atop a seaside hotel lends a decidedly different, relaxed vibe. Perfect after a day at the beach, "BBC" has pub fare and fresh local seafood, as well as the beer samplers and terrific views. Live music is offered most weekends.

  • 6. Baja Brewing Co.

    The Baja Brewing Co. serves cold, on-site–microbrewed cerveza and international pub fare. You'll find entrées ranging from ahi tuna quesadillas to basil-and-blue-cheese burgers. Our favorite of the eight beers is the Baja Blond Ale; the BBC also brews Oatmeal Stout, Raspberry Lager, homemade root beer, and a dark, smooth Black Scorpion. If you can't make up your mind, order the sampler.

  • 7. Billygan's Island

    Playa El Médano

    The once boisterous Billygan's Island on Médano Beach is now one of the more tame spots on the sand. The bikini dance contests may be a thing of the past, but you can still get great deals on margaritas and buckets of beer, as well as seafood favorites like coconut shrimp and octopus.

    Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, 23450, Mexico
  • 8. Cabo Wabo


    Depending on when you visit Cabo Wabo, you might just witness a jam session with owner Sammy Hagar and some of his legendary musician friends, who stop by a few times throughout the year. Plan way in advance to attend Hagar's Birthday Bash Week—usually the second week in October—as tickets sell out. The bar's design—high cavernous ceilings, zebra stipes, and psychedelic neon patterns—was re-created for the set of Hagar's Red Voodoo tour. Make dinner reservations to avoid the long lines to get in the club. Lunch and dinner are served with extensive menus, and a taco grill cooks up tasty munchies outside if you wish to cool off after dancing. Shops on-site or at the international airport sell Cabo Wabo souvenir clothing.

  • 9. Caborey

    Marina San Lucas

    Caborey offers a nightly 2½-hour sunset-dinner cruise on a three-deck catamaran. The cost is $129 and includes a full prix-fixe dinner with your choice of one of six main courses, an open bar for domestic beverages, and a Las Vegas–style show of Mexican music. Departure time is 5 or 6 pm, depending on the timeof year. Check online for discount tickets.

  • 10. Cantina29 at Casa Don Rodrigo


    Come here for the ambience and cocktails (the food has mixed reviews) like the blackberry mojito or house margarita. Once the home of the owner’s grandparents, the building dates back to 1927 and its original brick walls are still intact, adorned with historic family photographs. The courtyard, strung with lanterns and fairy lights, is a pleasant place to enjoy the live mariachi.

    Blvd. Antonio Mijares 29, San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, 23400, Mexico
  • 11. El Squid Roe

    Anything goes at this four-story party spot, including lots of dancing, Jell-O shots, beer-chugging contests, and dancers undulating in a makeshift penitentiary. During spring break or high season, more than 3,000 revelers come here on any given night—and many stay until sunrise. Feeling out of place? Head for one of the balconies on the third and fourth floors (which can be reached by elevator) where the scene is a bit less lurid. Around the corner stands the bar's souvenir shop with humorous T-shirts. El Squid Roe also has a full menu, serving pastas, steaks, and salads.

    Av. Lázaro Cárdenas, Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, 23452, Mexico
  • 12. Giggling Marlin

    Giggling Marlin predates Cabo's tourism explosion, though its gimmicks remain popular. Watch brave (and inebriated) souls be hoisted upside down at the mock fish-weighing scale, or join in an impromptu moonwalk between tables. Many fun (albeit risqué) floor shows relax people's inhibitions. The age of the clientele varies, as does the music, but the dance floor is usually jammed. Daily two-for-one drink specials pack 'em in 9 am–5 pm.

    Blvd. Marina at Matamoros, Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, 23452, Mexico
  • 13. Hard Rock Cafe

    After an absence for several years, Hard Rock Cafe is back in Cabo San Lucas, barely a stone’s throw from the old location on Av. Lázaro Cárdenas. The new iteration of the global chain is a bit sleeker, and there's now an alfresco dining terrace, but otherwise the focus remains much the same: plenty of comfort food and cocktails, an on-site souvenir store, and walls chock-a-block with rock-and-roll memorabilia, from glitzy stage outfits to custom, rock star–wielded guitars. The Original Legendary Burger with applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion ring is the must-try menu item, while signature cocktails like the Hurricane and Classic Caribbean Mojito come with their own collectible glasses. Check the website calendar for live music and other upcoming events.

  • 14. Hussong's Cantina


    Hussong's Cantina has been an Ensenada landmark since 1892, and has changed little since then. Ask anyone here and they'll tell you that this is where the margarita was invented by bartender Don Carlos Orozco in October 1941; however, this is just one of several local establishments that state that claim to fame. Regardless, come by Saturday when you can get two margaritas for the price of one, or two-for-one beers every Tuesday and Thursday. A security guard stands by the front door to handle the often-rowdy crowd. The floor is covered with sawdust, and the noise is usually deafening, pierced by mariachi and ranchera musicians and the whoops and hollers of the pie-eyed.

  • 15. La Osteria

    Zona Hotelera

    Live music on Thursdays and Fridays coupled with the refreshing cocktails make this one of the best spots to grab a drink in San José del Cabo. Acoustic guitars add to the quaint atmosphere you’ll find in the lantern-lit, stone courtyard. Tapas make a tasty accompaniment to the house sangrias.

  • 16. La Santeña

    You'll find this upscale rendition of a Mexican cantina (with a restaurant, too) in the Hotel Casa Tota. It's a great place to stop for a quiet drink.

  • 17. La Terraza


    The best spot for both sunset- and people-watching along the malecón is La Terraza at the Hotel Perla. The place makes killer margaritas, too.

    Paseo Alvaro Obregón 1570, La Paz, Baja California Sur, 23000, Mexico
  • 18. Las Varitas

    Las Varitas, one of Cabo's most popular clubs, is a branch of the La Paz rock club favored by young Mexicans. Local and internationally famous Latin rock bands perform here almost every night, and the establishment even boasts its own label of house tequila.

  • 20. Latitude 22+ Roadhouse

    This noisy, friendly roadhouse always attracts gringos looking to down a shot of tequila, sip cold beer, and mingle with old or new friends. The menu features good, dependable, and mostly American fare. From October to June they host live music, ranging in style from pop to blues to country.
