After the sun sets in Cabo San Lucas, the vibrant nightlife comes to life. Partygoers have a plethora of options when they want to get wasted. The drinks are cheap and so are the shots. The dress code is very lax in every establishment, even the nightclub atmosphere. I was in a t-shirt, jeans, and flip flops throughout the night because it was so hot and that was the norm dress code for a summer night out.

The main concentration of clubs is located on the streets of Calle Lazaro Cardenas and Boulevard Paseo de La Marina.
During the day, El Squid Roe serves up some of the best food in its own Billy Kitchen located on Lazaro Cardenas Street.
Cabo Blue located on Paseo de La Marina in Plaza Real offers some of the best drink prices in town. They often serve $1 beers during happy hour.
Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina is catered more towards the older crowd and is located in Plaza de los Mariachis on Boluevard Paseo de La Marina.
Another older crowd favorite is The Giggling Marlin.
We started off the night at the famous Happy Ending Cantina.
Basically, it’s happy hour every hour at Happy Ending Cantina. You can get two shots of tequila and two bottled beers all for $5. It’s the best deal in downtown Cabo San Lucas besides Cabo Blue’s $1 beer.
After, we went into a nightclub called Pink Kitty. There was no cover charge and the place was pretty empty at 11pm.
All the wait staff and bartenders wear t-shirts that say “I’m in Cabo B****” (I edited out the word in the picture).
After Pink Kitty Nightclub, we headed to the nearby Saloon Bar where there are drink and shot specials all night. You can get 6 shots for $12 and the bartender often includes a bonus shot. There are also all you can eat peanuts where you throw the shells on the floor.
We ordered kamikaze and gummy bear shots from the Victor, who is proclaimed to be the best bartender in Cabo.
Here’s a video of Victor setting the bar on fire:
Next door was Mandala Nightclub, which had no cover as well. It wasn’t one of my favorites and there were hardly any people dancing.
We ended the night at the famous El Squid Roe which offers two levels of partying. The main dance floor is located in the bottom level.
Here is a video of how crazy it gets in El Squid Roe:
If you want to get away from the noise and people watch, head up to the 2nd floor.
We ordered a few drinks and had some Jell-O shots.
