Cabo San Lucas is the center of nightlife in the Los Cabos area, this is where you’ll find our official gay club, Chandeliers, and where your gay social app will be most active. However, unlike queer culture in the major cities of the United States, Mexican gay culture is more integrated with fiestas bugas (straight parties). You’ll find LGBT folks at places like Pink Kitty, Mixology, Mandala and the pool parties at ME Cabo. Nightclubs get going after 11 PM (closer to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays), you can head to bars or restaurants earlier to ramp up your night, or take a disco nap because the nightclubs close as late as 4 AM the next morning.
Open Thursday through Sundays from 9 PM to 5 AM, Chandeliers features gogo boys, drag queens, strippers and DJs. Thursday and Sunday nights they offer happy hour specials (2 for 1 beers) and no cover before 11PM. The crowd shows up closer to midnight on Friday and Saturday. Chandeliers is located in downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Pink Kitty is an EDM club in downtown Cabo San Lucas, on “the strip,” where many other nightclubs and bars are all located. They feature VIP tables and an open-minded crowd. It’s open Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 PM to 4 AM. Get there between 11 PM and 12 AM, and consider getting VIP tickets, it ends up being a better deal in the end.

For a change of scenery, Mixology Fusion Bar, located in San Jose del Cabo is a speakeasy offering great cocktails and a beautiful large patio.
