Cabo Wabo Beach Club alternative logo


Cabo Wabo is the brainchild of Sammy Hagar, who brought the concept to life in 1990 when he opened the original Cabo Wabo Cantina in the then-sleepy fishing village of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Known as “the club that Sammy and Van Halen built,” it’s been named one of the top ten party spots in the world and is home to Sammy's annual birthday bash to this day!

Today, the creativity and spirit of the original brand has been reimagined and transformed into Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Beach Club to fit seamlessly into its Huntington Beach, California home at The Waterfront Beach Resort. Nestled within this oceanfront hotel, Cabo Wabo Beach Club features indoor and outdoor dining areas, as well as an exciting palapa bar overlooking the Pacific Ocean! Just steps from the sandy shores for which the area is known, the restaurant’s menu of coastal cuisine and weekend seafood brunch, as well as signature cocktails, create a full-sensory experience that embody the soul of the original Cabo Wabo as guests soak up the sun, sip margaritas, and enjoy life!


Step into Cabo Wabo Beach Club's captivating oceanfront setting and find yourself transported to a tropical oasis with inspired coastal Mexican cuisine, handcrafted cocktails, lively atmosphere, and warm service. Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar’s popular Cabo San Lucas restaurant meets the luxurious bliss of The Waterfront Beach Resort to create a wholly unique dining destination that is meant for locals and visitors, alike.

Sip on a refreshing craft cocktail as you relax and recharge at the Cabo Wabo Beach Club's sun-soaked outdoor palapa bar. Dine on chef-curated dishes as you enjoy panoramic views of the sun setting over the Pacific. Meet up with friends for a beachside breakfast, or make plans for late-night bites and libations around the restaurant’s flaming guitar fire pit, an homage to Sammy himself.

Sammy Hagar

For more than five decades, Sammy Hagar has been recognized as one of the best and most accomplished lead singers and songwriters in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multi-platinum solo career, ride as the frontman of Van Halen, Chickenfoot and his latest best-selling supergroup, The Circle, he’s amassed 25 Platinum albums on sales surpassing 50 million worldwide.

Along his journey, he’s set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever written with songs like "I Can't Drive 55," "Right Now," and "Why Can't This Be Love," and earned the highest respect of the music industry with a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.


Since launching his flagship Cabo Wabo Cantina in 1990, he’s turned a lifelong passion for great food, music and spirits into a thriving and iconic lifestyle brand. A pioneer in the spirits industry, Hagar’s development and 9-figure sale of Cabo Wabo Tequila to Gruppo Campari in 2008 is widely credited as the start of the celebrity-owned spirits trend. His portfolio now includes Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, Santo Tequila, and Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co., as well as several restaurants.

Sammy has also found success in publishing, TV, radio and beyond, including five seasons of his hit TV show, “Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar,” and “Sammy Hagar’s Top Rock Countdown,” his syndicated radio show that’s broadcast on 90+ U.S. stations. He’s also a #1 NYT bestselling author, dedicated philanthropist, and in January 2022, he was bestowed the first Honorary Ambassador to Los Cabos, in recognition of his longtime investment in the people and economy of Mexico.


In 2008, Sammy Hagar and his wife, Kari, created The Hagar Family Foundation, a dedicated fund that has, to date, given more than $4 million to charities in local communities focused on food relief and children’s causes. As an Orange County resident, Hagar will grow his foundation’s reach locally as he has committed to donating a majority of his net proceeds from the Cabo Wabo Beach Club at The Waterfront Beach Resort to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and Tilly's Life Center through the Hagar Family Foundation.

Hagar’s philanthropic partnership through Cabo Wabo Beach Club is dedicated to CHOC’s Social Service Department to support children and their families who are struggling with the burden of financial and psychosocial obstacles that accompany a child’s hospitalization and treatment. Donations will be sent to CHOC Foundation on a regular basis in perpetuity as long as Cabo Wabo Beach Club in Huntington Beach remains open, and will help support parents so they may focus on their child’s care and well-being.
