Mango: Our personal favorite of all Cabo San Lucas bars! Situated right on the coast of the Sea of Cortez, Mango Deck is a great place to party all day and all night long. Enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine and numerous frozen margaritas as you take in the beauty of the distant El Arco del Cabo. Should you get asked by a waitress to play a game of Tic Tac Toe, get out your camera and be prepared for jello shots, lifeguard whistles, and motorboating. Mango Deck is the ideal place to drink and enjoy the view during the day and party hard at night.
The Nowhere Bar
The Nowhere Bar is another Cabo classic when it comes to nightlife. Happy hour lasts from 5 PM to 9 PM, and every Tuesday is ladies’ night where girls drink for free from 8 PM to 10 PM. With an open dancefloor, DJ booth, and intimate atmosphere, Nowhere Bar is a great place to spend an evening in Cabo.
Ever got drinks at a club where the standard measurement is 1 liter? At La Vaquita, club-goers can buy mixed drinks like margaritas, tequila sunrise, or their choice of liquor by the liter! This is a great place for DJ sets and light shows. The best part? La Vaquita keeps the party going until 5AM!
One of the newest additions to club life in Cabo, Crush Nightspot has established a reputation for partygoers with its frequent DJs and performers, signature drinks, and late hours. Crush is one of the best places for Ladies Night in Cabo for both locals and tourists. This place will keep the party going until 4 am if you can handle it.

Although Jungle Bar hasn’t been the same since during the heyday of Strogeno when the lead singer would perform four nights a week and crowds would spill out onto the sidewalks, Jungle Bar is still a popular hangout for partygoers looking for a more chill vibe. This is a great place to catch the latest game on TV, enjoy live music, and have a good time without being pressured to dress to the nines.
