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.

Scammy place for tourists
Jul 2020
BE CAREFUL ABOUT OVER-CHARGING SCAMS. I ordered a few vegas bomb shots that were listed as 120 pesos on the menu. When the check came they listed it as "1 redbull - 250 pesos.. 1 Crown shot 400 pesos" for each shot I ordered. Also, they have a lady going around offering people non alcoholic shots (passing them off as alcoholic) for $4 a piece (and of course she insists you buy her a shot as well) Stay away from those.

El Squid Roe Disaster
Mar 2020
We have been coming to Cabo San Lucas nearly every year since 2008. We have eaten at El Squid Roe, a downtown iconic establishment, for fun and food every year. Not any more. First, the environment is not for everyone. It is LOUD, and there is a lot of drinking. Not so bad if you are into that kind of thing. The salsa is made at your table fresh and is usually pretty good. This time, it was marginal. The margaritas and Long Island Ice Tea were good, as usual. Everything else was down hill. They messed up every order at our table of four. Not one single order was correct and even the replacement dishes were incorrect. Nothing was served together. It took several requests just to get a soup spoon and by the time it arrived, the soup was cold. We were there for nearly an hour and only one order was served. The apologies were frequent and delivered with apparent sincerity, but nothing changed. EVERYTHING was wrong. If the place had been packed, I might have understood, but we were one of two groups ordering food in the entire place. Finally, when we got our waiter and the manager together they offered to buy our dinner, which, of course, only one out of three of us received. It is absolutely the worst service we have had at any establishment in Cabo San Lucas. We are finished with El Squid Roe and discourage anyone from visiting. There are so many alternatives, why would you?

Bachelorette Fun!
Feb 2020
We descended on this place with 12 ladies ready to party and ordered bottle service. Prices were cheappppp! (at least compared to LA). We had a blast! Jonathan and Roberto took excellent care of us! All of us are in relationships and as such, didn't want to be bothered by anyone weird. Our hosts kept that in mind and made sure to check in with us through out the night. The night consisted of us dancing on tables, taking shots, and having a wild time. They truly were very entertaining hosts, and convinced many of the ladies in our group to drink more and let loose. The entire experience was very enjoyable! Our hosts made sure we had a great, safe, fun time! Recommend to anyone looking for a fun time! It was wild.

The service is great, staff is extremely friendly and entertaining! Wish we'd stumbled upon this place before our last evening in Cabo! They play great music and serve delicious beverages! Decorated so cool!!! The stalls in the ladies room were old London style phone booths! Very cool place! And the prices are not bad! My husband had 2 beers and I had 2 pretty strong cocktails, total less than $22. Bartender even gave us a delicious complimentary shot we he found out we were on our honeymoon.

Fun place drinks are expensive dont expect to sit down
Jan 2020 • Friends
It was a fun place to go to. The staff are funny and entertaining. If your going to drink allot definitely get a bracelet. Drinks are American prices. Tables are limited and every time I found an empty one the staff would kick us out and bring a reserved sign then a group of younger prettier girls would take over.

Amazing Nightlife!
Mar 2019
Squid Roe is one of my favorite places around the world to party, especially during spring break. The layout and the gimmicks are cool, the music is exactly what I like and high energy and the audience is super fun as well. I've been here during spring break and other seasons and it's always fund. I can definitely recommend the place. I'd pay in Pesos though as it's cheaper that way.

NEVER GO HERE EVER!
Jan 2020 • Couples
GO SOME WHERE ELSE TO PARTY!!!
Me and my wife have been going here for 10 years. Dec 28th 2019. We went here and was having a good time like normal. We usauly spend a ton of money here so half way through the night while me and my wife and 3 women friends were dancing on our table at our booth. He started yelling at me only? No clue why so I got off of table and then I was jumped by 5 of them and got thrown outside. Then when my wife comes out the police show up and one of the staff said I punched a girl and that I didnt want to pay my tab.
I make around 700-800k a year and I own property in Cabo. I think I can pay my tab let alone what women did I punch. So I got taken to jail for nothing. Well I paid them off with 200 bucks to get out when my bill was close to 500.00 at Squid row.
Either way they lost a customer here for life. GO SOME WHERE ELSE TO PARTY

Chris- we appreciate the 10 years of continuous business, and we’re sorry your experience wasn’t like all the other ones you’ve had. What seems like happened the night of Dec 28th, according to multiple staff members and our surveillance cameras was that when a group of women were setting up across from your table, you rushed towards them and got on their table and started dancing and videos show you knocked their recently bought drinks. After my staff told you we would take care of it and replace their drinks as long as you get off the table and leave them alone, you got aggresive and stated you could buy them yourself and for everyone else in the club. Unfortunately the manager then had to ask you to leave, and then were forced to escort you outside as you were being uncooperative. Nonetheless never “jumped you” and it was handled professionally. We are sure you can understand that there are other paying clients in here that are looking to have a good time and we have to look after that interest. Lastly, when you tried to come back into the club for the 4th time after telling you to go home, was when we were forced to call the authorities.
