Our Secrets to Experiencing the Best Nightlife in Los Cabos

CATEGORY: Things To Do | 04.20.2021

After a long, exhilarating day of hiking and ziplining over tropical terrain, snorkeling crystal-clear waters or even shopping ’til you drop along the local promenades, it might seem completely normal to wind down the day by spending the evening kicking back. But not around these parts. When the sun goes down in Los Cabos, that’s when the city really comes alive. Home to some of the world’s most electrifying clubs, classiest drink spots, and delectable gastropubs, both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo cater unforgettable experiences to anyone looking to keep the fun alive until sunrise. Whether you’re looking to party under the bright lights, strut to the sounds of the local music scene, or just sip on a margarita and soak in your surroundings high above downtown, nightlife in Los Cabos has a little something for everyone.

For Those Who Enjoy Being Wined and Dined…

If a more laidback slice of nightlife is what you seek, or you’re simply setting the stage for something a bit more uptempo, slip into some low-key ambiance with a drink in hand at one of Los Cabos’ wine or cocktail bars. Wine connoisseurs looking for a carefully curated list to sample from will enjoy Doc Wine Bar (Cabo San Lucas), where each selection pairs effortlessly with an ever-changing menu of decadent Italian-fusion dishes, and servers are trained to guide you towards the perfect glass. Equally romantic, but more for the cocktail crowd, the bartenders at Bar Esquina (Cabo San Lucas) certainly know how to sling a drink. It’s the perfect place to imbibe on creative concoctions while enjoying wood-fired pizzas, the occasional acoustic set from a local guitarist, and the tranquil evening breeze.

For Those Who Seek Casual, but Lively…

Beer drinkers, we didn’t forget you. The best place in Los Cabos – in fact, the three best places, two in Cabo San Lucas and the original in San Jose del Cabo – to get acquainted with local microbrews is at Baja Brewing Company. Their selection of in-house beers, coupled with a menu that’s sure to please even the fussiest eaters, make this gastropub the perfect place to catch a game, take in some live music, or get the gang together for another round. If your idea of fun and lively is something a bit more cloak-and-dagger, Mixology Fusion Bar (San Jose del Cabo) might be just the mysterious spot you’re looking for. To know where Mixology is alone won’t cut it – this prohibition-style speakeasy, in the heart of the Art District, requires patrons to know a secret password to get in. Once inside, be dazzled by cocktails you won’t find anywhere else, as well as a few house tunes to get you and your crew kicked into high gear.

For Those Who Just Want to Dance the Night Away…

You’ve seen the restaurants, you’ve been around the bars – now it’s time for the main event. It’s time to hit the clubs. First stop: Mandala (Cabo San Lucas). Here, the atmosphere is as colorful as the rainbow of lights adorning every square-inch of the club’s upscale decor. With full bottle service for the VIP crowd and a massive dance floor on which to get live, Mandala is popular with the after-midnight crowd and a known haunt for international DJs like Steve Aoki. If you’re not too caught up in your excitement, you might even catch a celebrity here from time to time.

Literally right next door at El Squid Roe, this legendary three-storey club has hosted some of Los Cabos’ wildest parties for decades – and has way more than just three stories to tell. Whether you’re a local, a tourist or a celebrity who enjoys a wide selection of house and techno, confetti blasts, and free-flowing tequila, there isn’t a person who doesn’t enjoy El Squid Roe.

And for Those Who Want to Take the Party Outside…

One of the great things about Los Cabos is that, with warm weather year round and beaches in close proximity, the party doesn’t just happen indoors. Like watching a scene out of a Hollywood film, Blue Marlin Ibiza (Cabo San Lucas) takes the party poolside. Dive in and swim out to the bar, which happens to be situated in the middle of the gigantic pool, and swim back to the deck (be careful not to spill), where you can sit back on a daybed or get up and dance to the sounds of guest DJs like Bob Sinclar. Of course, if your idea of the perfect nightlife simply involves an evening in with your closest companions, our Los Cabos properties are the perfect setting for entertaining in luxury.
