Shared many hours with El Jefe Gene and all his wonderful staff. The coldest, bestest beer in town and one hell of a great time. You haven't been to Cabo until you've been to The Happy Ending.

This was the first place in Cabo we found to dance on top of the bar! We were determined to find somewhere to dance on top of the bar. Not only did this place allow it, but they encouraged it! They played music, gave us shots, blew whistles and everything! It was awesome, so we bought souvenir tees.
