A few places I would recommend for a fun evening out:
Rosarita Beach Hotel:
Rosa & Rita Bar An old world nightclub lounge and on weekends a Karaoke Bar.
Adobe Lounge A weekend dance club for those who enjoy a less rowdy evening than elsewhere in Rosarito's club scene. Since 1925 this hotel has cartered to the Mexican and has welcomed the traveler, no matter where they come from. Those seeking the "real" Mexico, will find it here, in the hospitality, in the food and in the festivities. The updates and renovations reflect a proud history while keeping up with Modern Mexico.
An off the Beaten path nightspot is "Club 1773" at Calafia. IThis nightclub caters to a mixed age set. Though it can be quite lively, it's nothing as wild as the club scene in town.
Papas and Beer, has grown from a little beach shack bar on the sand at Rosarito Beach to one of the hottest and sometime wildest Spring Break destinations of North America. Each year it has expanded and today is one of the hottest, biggest and most popular nightspots to party in Rosarito Beach. It's right on the beach, and besides having a drink at the bar or sitting at a table under the thatched umbrellas there is a volley ball court set up on the sand for anyone to play.
During Spring Break and other holidays, sometimes just at weeks end, this place can become a mass riot of party animals. Off times it's a safe enough place for us old folks.
Dress Code: Stylishly casual at the Rosarita Beach Hotel and at "Club 1773."
At Papas & Beer, dress as you like. The dress code is wide open! Even Speedos and Bikinis are sometimes the norm.
We've all been to the requisite Papas and Beer, Señor Frogs, Boom Boom, Rock and Roll Taco, etc...and if it's debauchery you're after, you're bound to find it there.
HOWEVER, if you're looking for something a little less "meat market-y" (if that term exists) it is CALAFIA!!!!! you seek.
Dress Code: This is not a coat and tie required club, but it is definitely a no sneakers, or other shabby looking articles of clothing. Now I know that a pair of jeans can go a long way when it comes to strutting your stuff, right ladies? But why not take out that little black dress you've been saving for that dinner that hasn't happened just yet.
Guys, I know the magic a tight little t-shirt can weave, trust me, I've fallen for it in my past, but why not wear a nice tailored shirt with some interesting patterns and a fitted cut for that beach physique.
Notice I didn't say no flip flops, and there is a reason. Flip flops too, have come a long way since Flojos (remember those) came on the market. Work the flip flops!
Once dusk is turning in the crowd moves along Juarez to check out bars and restaurants for some fine Tequila and other booze. Try Chachacha, a nice bar with a nice crowd.
I wouldn't consider anything as especially unique, but that does not mean you can't have fun there.
Mision Calafias has its own club so you do not have to drive anywhere. You can have fun and drink and when you've had enough, you can walk up to your room.
The club is a few steps down to a Spanish ship by the shore. People are friendly and you have a good time
Dress Code: Whatever you want.
We went to a few places...the first night we tried out Senor Frogs which had a $20 cover charge that didn't include any drinks... Once inside, the atmosphere was pretty good, really crowded though... My favorite place was this salsa bar/dance club that was in some nice hotel (forget the name)... There are other clubs in the area, but I guess Senor Frogs is the biggest and most popular...
A lot of Mexican beach cities cater to the college age party crowd. The festival Plaza hotel is one...more
