Uno Mas

If you want to go to one of the most popular breweries on the entire island, start here. Not only is this place popular among tourists for its upbeat vibes and great beer, but locals love it here too! We LOVE the drink specials at this bar. You won’t find super high-end drink specials, but you can get frozen margaritas for $1, buckets of beer for low prices, and 2-for-1 specials that are going to knock your socks off. Head here to start the weekend night off right and then stay out until the early morning going to one of the nearby clubs in Cabo!

El Squid Roe

Forget the strange name — you are going to have a blast here at El Squid Roe!  This multi-floor spot is busy all day long, but it really comes alive at night when you can dance, rub shoulders with famous singers and actors, and sip on some strong cocktails.

Monkey’s Cave Bar

Do you like to sing and dance after a few beers? Head here! This cheap and laid-back dive bar is the best place to come to if you are in the mood for karaoke, a no-frills atmosphere, and pool tables for playing a game against your friends or your date for the night.

Mango Deck Beach Club

For the party-goers who want to be outside all day long, Mango Deck is where it’s at! Plus, we would do the same. Cabo has pristine weather no matter the time of day — in the mornings, it is cool and breezy. In the afternoon, it is perfect for tanning weather. And in the evening, when it is time to go out for the nightlife, you can go out in a shirt and shorts and be perfectly comfortable. Head to Mango Deck to get amazing views, drink outside, and try your best dance moves at house music.

Giggling Marlin Bar

Head here to start your night in the downtown area that is bustling and lively at all times of the day! We think this is one of the best bars for those who want to enjoy a frozen or ice-cold margarita with some appetizers and then stay for a few more drinks and beers. Come here during happy hour for half-priced drinks and $3 beers!

Sand Bar

For those who want a lovely place that is the perfect spot for dancing, talking to friendly bartenders, meeting other tourists, and having drinks that are going to make you forget there is alcohol in them, head to Sand Bar! We love this as a starting-off point for a night filled with fun and drinking. The best times to come here are on Saturday nights for the live music and the large crowds.

Nikki Beach

If you are interested in booking a private cabana, paying for bottle service, and having a high-end and swanky day or night out in Cabo, then look no further! Nikki Beach is the ideal place to start the part yearly in the day and keep it going all night long. Plus, you can book a private spot at the club and get a tan, sip on a strong cocktail, share a bucket of beers with your pals, or lounge in one of the rentable bungalows with your new friends.

Please note that the beach bars are suggested for younger and wilder crowds and the atmosphere is very casual and can be loud.
