The History Of Cabo Wabo
- In Sammy's words...
"During construction, Van Halen was on tour and Jorge was in charge of the details.
So by the time I first saw the Cantina it was almost completed. ‘I can't believe it's this big,’ I told Marco. ‘This is way too big for Cabo San Lucas. But, I like it.’
Of course, I wanted a monster opening that included MTV coverage. Since Van Halen was going to participate on my behalf to make the grand opening a major event, I felt a sense of camaraderie. It seemed appropriate to offer the other members of the band financial participation in the project. They accepted.
At first, because the cantina was a novelty and had received worldwide press coverage, business was good and everyone made money. But management was shaky and the club soon became a white elephant. Then it began costing the band big money. When it did, the other members of Van Halen no longer wanted any part of it.
But it was my baby and I wanted it even if it was a white elephant. I believed in the project. It just needed proper attention and better management.
When I assumed total control of the Cabo Wabo Cantina, Marco asked if he could come in as my partner because he believed in the project.
This was in 1994 and he became my partner that year. The building was redecorated, the restaurant was moved upstairs and a prime chef was brought in. Soon Marco had the local population involved and coming in to enjoy themselves.
By then, the Cantina had become the place to go in a town that was already a destination of choice. It has helped, too, that Cabo San Lucas has almost tripled in size since my first visit. It is no longer a simple fishing village.
Because of my current partners in the operation and the enormous amount of publicity that Cabo Wabo receives in the United States every year, the success and size of the project has become much more than I ever imagined it to be.
Besides MTV, the Cabo Wabo Cantina has been featured on the Travel Channel, VH1, E and many television shows. Voted as one of the Top 10 party spots in the world, it is still my baby. Even so, it has grown into a monster that has a life of its own – one big party animal.
Wow! All that from a dream!
Go there and enjoy yourself. That's the reason the Cantina was built!
