Cabo San Lucas Nightlife: The 5 Best Bars for Tourists
A comprehensive guide for finding the best bars on offers in Cabo
Cabo San Lucas is a thrilling and enticing destination, and apart from the amazing adventures that are to be had during the day, there are a lot of seriously fun nights that lay ahead of you if you’re planning a trip here!
From the full-on rave dance clubs to the more chilled out vibes that can be found in local cantinas, Cabo is about so much more than just beachside sundowner cocktails!
How to Find a Great Bar in Cabo San Lucas
Typically, a Cabo bar that sports a good number of expats and that’s situated in a respectable area is a great Cabo bar. While we don’t all have the same taste in nightlife entertainment, I’ve rounded up some of the most reputable bars in Cabo San Lucas, just so that you know where and when to go to the top spots.
While spots such as the Giggling Marlin, Nowhere Bar, Cabo Blue, and Jungle Bar are all pretty fantastic, there are 5 other nightlife hangouts that make out the top of the crops in Cabo. Here they are…
#1 Tanga Tanga
Loved by locals since it has some serious flair and great Cabo vibes, Tanga Tanga is one of the best bars in Cabo. You can find it on the Plaza de la Danza, and we’re betting you’ll love the idea that it has an abundance of indoor and outdoor seating options to choose from. Once in a while, they offer some great live music, but if you love the idea of watching a live sports event, make sure that you come and experience it here. Tanga Tanga offers some great pub grub, but if you’re not tempted by the onsite kitchen, you can always order something from Tio Guido’s deli, which offers a free delivery service.
#2 Fenway Bar
Deep in the heart of Cabo San Lucas you’ll find a pub that literally crawls with some good old Boston spirit – Fenway Bar. Since the bar is owned by Red Sox fan Ignacio Padilla, it’s basically a tribute to the team. With its ability to draw massive crowds of locals and visitors, Fenway Bar is renowned for its live sporting and music events. Daily specials from the grill, as well as a tantalizing drinks menu, make this one of the must-visit bars in Cabo.
#3 Baja Brewing Company
With the original brewery located in San José del Cabo, another on Médano Beach, and the third in Cabo San Lucas, Baja Brewing Company is an established and very popular nightlife entertainment spot in Cabo. Here you’ll have the opportunity of feasting on the finest foods and indulging in delicious drinks while you’re here, ranging from gourmet pizzas all the way through to exclusive drinks.
#4 Cabo Wabo Cantina
You might have heard about a tequila brand with the same name, which is exactly why you should pay a visit to the renowned Cabo Wabo Cantina, which has a rich history of more than 20 years. Expect loads of great live music, great food, and off course some fine drinks while you’re around.
#5 Latitude 22+ Roadhouse
If ever there was an establishment that formed part of a city’s history, Latitude 22+ Roadhouse would be IT for Cabo San Lucas. A trip to the dig will have you fascinated as you gaze upon historic photos of prominent locals and big events that made Cabo what it is today. From your barstool, make sure you soak up the Land’s End views or just kick back in one of their booths and enjoy a scrumptious meal. Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget to sit back, relax, and feel the vibes as you listen to great live music during the peak season in Cabo.
Although I try to be very open-minded when I pick top joints in towns that have to be seen, I’m only human, and I totally get that I might not always mention a spot that’s worthy of standing in the spotlight. Feel free to let me know what you think, and recommend a bar if it’s not on this list. For all other goals and purposes, I hope that this post has given you some inspiration to help you plan an epic nightlife adventure while you’re out in Cabo San Lucas!
