Not really Nightlife, only a dance class during the day, the music and cheerful crowd, kept us dancing (or at least trying hard to move as cool as the rest boys-only crowd) and laughing, it's the most packed, fun and hilarious dance class ever.
Papas Y Beer is the dance club of choice and has a lot of drinks. Another good one is Senor Frog's. THere are a lot of places in this general area that both the locals and tourists jointly share. Anyone is good to go to.
Cheap drinks good live entertainment, two floors, very clean
Dress Code: casual to high end casual
Old time bar from the 1920s. Every celebrity and criminal that has visited Ensenada has been here. Toss one back where Alan Ladd and Dorthy Lamour had a drink!
Dress Code: Just about anything so long as it is clean.
I'm certainly not the only one that will tell you this....you have got to have a margarita at Hussong's. Good local flavor (in the people and drink).
