The Mexican state of Baja California is known to be a party destination by travelers, especially those from the United States. The cities of Tijuana, Rosarito, and Ensenada are all popular for their shopping, dining, and nightlife. As someone who enjoys nightlife all over the world, I’m providing you with a small peek into the nightlife the Baja California strip has to offer partygoers and food lovers alike.

Avenida Revolucioń, Tijuana

The main street in Tijuana has many shops, street vendors and restaurants for tourists to wander through during the daytime. After a day of shopping, its gastropubs and breweries provide a nice setting to grab a bite to eat before the sun goes down. Once it’s dark in Tijuana, the bars and clubs turn Avenida Revolucioń into one big party. Among the streets and bars, you’ll find interesting musical blends of live bands and club music. Partygoers can also walk from bar to bar, while sipping on anything from a cold, craft beer to champagne.

Papas & Beer, two locations in Rosarito and Ensenada

This beachfront nightclub is known for its amazing drinks, live performances, mouthwatering food, and endless partying. With more than 43,000 square feet of beachfront, partygoers can dance the night away with soft sand between their toes, take a dip in the Pacific Ocean or play a round or two of beach volleyball. For those who prefer the land instead of the sea, you can enjoy a drink in one of the seven fully stocked bars on decks overlooking the beach, go for a quick dive in the swimming pool, or take a ride on the mechanical bull.

Because Papas & Beer is an all-night affair, they have partnered with hotels just a few blocks away from the club to offer partygoers the opportunity to plan the weekend of a lifetime with ease. The Rosarito Beach Hotel, Festival Plaza, and Rosarito Inn Oceana all offer their guests fantastic amenities like massages, child care, and free wi-fi.

Skybar at Planta Baja, Ensenada

The Skybar at Planta Baja refers to themselves as “a restaurant without labels,” so they are willing to explore different styles of cuisine. It’s reflected in their menu, where a plethora of meal options can please any diner. According to a review on their Facebook page, the restaurant and bar has “great natural flavors that are cooked to order and a huge choice with over 80 options. There’s something for all.”

With a great view to watch the sunset in the outdoor dining area and a huge selection of wines and craft beers, this place is highly recommended by all who visit. The Facebook reviews don’t lie — it’s rated with 4.7 out of 5 stars!
