About
El Squid Roe a three-floor house of madness with a crowd that isn't afraid to get on top of their tables and dance as the DJ plays music for all ages. The ambiance is that of a house party but with an MC to guide you through the night and cold served drinks by our attention to detail staff. Known as the best party in Baja and therefore has attracted the likes of Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Floyd Mayweather, Tupac, Dana White, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Rihanna, Oscar De La Hoya, Alex Rodriguez, Tony Romo, Tito Ortiz, 50 Cent, and many other celebrities. As locals and tourists alike agree, this place has been an icon in Cabo for decades.

Waitresses play a tic tac toe game which is pretty clever that you can't win. Drinks were absolutely ridiculously priced and very watered down. We had multiple shots and drinks and didn't even have a buzz. Very cool inside, but for $20 a person just to get in, it is absolutely not worth it. Waiter at the end of the night said we absolutely had to give a $55 tip. Absolutely absurd.

Saw that this was a place you had to visit in Cabo, so I went with a group of 7 friends. Didn’t pay to get in, that was cool.

All of the shots and mixed drinks we got were extremely expensive (8 USD+) and WEAK as hell. I had probably 5-6 drinks and was barely buzzed and I get tipsy off of two beers. Just got sick to my stomach from how sweet they were.

When trying to enter people will try and sell you every drug under the sun, they look sketchy as hell, and they get pissed off when you try to get them to leave you alone. This process repeats every time you try to step outside for a smoke because they can’t tell us gringos apart, apparently.

The cherry on top was when the bartender (or some other lackey) brought us our check (well over 200$) and demanded a 40% tip. For drinks. We tipped around 20% initially and he was not happy. Talked about how it wasn’t enough, took our money, then brought the check back with how much we “needed” to top tip (something ridiculous like 70$).

It has a really cool vibe, awesome wall decor and dance floors, it’s cool being a 3-level thing, music was good, but I genuinely wouldn’t recommend going there unless you’re already sloshed.

If you have not been here yet, you need to stop by. This place is unreal! If you’re going at night it’s going to be amazing! If you’re going during the day, they will make your trip very rememberable. Just make sure you take care of the servers! I just left at 4:00 p.m. on the 19th of September and it was incredible! They made us feel amazing. We will be back for she. This is our 4th time here and it keeps getting better.

This placed used to be the Mecca for a good party. Not sure if it’s due to pandemic but it seems they are more interested in rouchy activities. Obviously Americans get preference and probably don’t pay the outrageous 400 pesos cover price. Saying it’s a minimum consumption price and you get 2 beers. Note that the beer costs 85 pesos. Something doesn’t add up.

One of our girls ended up in the ER last night after drinking tequila shots. Pretty sure they were tainted or fake alcohol. So scary. Do not go to this place. Ever.

We did not buy a plan. Just showed up about 8 PM on a Tuesday. On Friday night the line was out the door and around the block, or pay a cover or $20 USD and two drinks minimum and you are a VIP.

So go on a weekday unless you want to be wall to wall people on three floors, very loud music, and crazy.

Its worth a visit to have a few drinks and take in the decor. the longer you look the more to find to see. Mid day is a good time to stop in, unless you are looking for "a good time".

I think the drinks are weak, but who goes for the drink? Its a show of people being very happy and walls of 'art'. A must stop when in CSL.

If there is a cruise ship in port maybe go another day, unless you are ON the cruise.

Be smart, wallets in front pockets, phones in hand, purses crossways.

20 years ago I was a Squid Roe local but stayed away from the commercialized Cabo San Lucas for a long time. My friends and I stayed over a couple of days after a fishing trip just to see what happens now. While standing in line one of the staff, in a staff shirt, tried to sell me drugs (hard drugs) and was fairly indignant when I strongly refused, then I paid a cover charge to get into the fairly empty club and it still took forever to get a drink. I lasted until the end of that drink and took off. I never could quite get over the doorman trying to sell me drugs, just felt like I may be set up. I'll never be back
