Baja Junkie

Another popular spot on the Cabo nightlife scene, Baja Junkie is an awesome club for after-hours revelry and celebrity sightings! Depending on the night, you can enjoy some DJ talent or live music, and don’t be surprised if the tequila shots lead to some bartop dancing. Their fresh margaritas are heavenly, and the cocktail menu is extensive.

Opened by Van Halen’s former frontman Sammy Hagar, this landmark club has witnessed a lot of growth over the past two decades, and is a mandatory stop for anyone who visits Los Cabos. Cabo Wabo is renowned for its live music, visiting rockstars, signature Waborita cocktails and tasty eats. If you happen to be there in October, see if you can swing tickets to Hagar’s annual birthday bash, which often includes some famous guests.
