Ran across this bar during an unusual rain storm. The prices for drinks and food are great. We stayed for a couple of hours out of the rain. All the staff were helpful and very friendly even though it was all hands on deck to sweep out the water. Loved our server Daniel. Service was great and he was amused... More

Hi Gene and Friends- I have been going to Happy Ending for a long time and it is one of my favorite places in Cabo.

This is a fun place and has one of the best drink specials. 2 beers and 2 shots for $5. Fun atmosphere. Got a free specialty shot when the bartender found out we were celebrating my birthday. Definitely recommend this bar!

Can't beat the "2 shots and 2 beers for $5" price. Laid back, fun place, full of surprises. Gene, the owner, is retired from the LAPD and is very friendly and congenial. The place is a favorite of active and retired First Responders, some of whose names adorn the walls and thousands of dollar bills hanging from the ceiling. This... More

This bar was so much fun in the evening. The bartenders don't care if you dance on the bar. Almost anything goes! Best mojitos in town!
