Puerto Peñasco After Dark
While Rocky Point and the surrounding area are most known for their wealth of daytime activities, there’s still an active, thriving nightlife just waiting for you to explore. Here are some of the best and most famous spots in the town.
The longest-running, most famous institution in Rocky Point, JJ’s is located in Cholla Bay. Commonly called JJ’s, it’s best-known for its excellent views of the bay, steps leading out to the waterfront, and the very affordable drink prices. A common line of thought runs, “If you haven’t been to JJ’s, you haven’t been to Rocky Point.”
Elixir Bar- Lounge
For those looking for a nightclub with a trendy lounge atmosphere, Elixir is the place to be. Featuring an open air terrace and live DJ performances, it’s one of Rocky Point’s busiest spots on Thursday and Saturday nights. On Fridays, local music group Agua de Coco performs salsa and Latin jazz. The club is open late during Spring Break and other peak times, and one of the most popular aspects is after paying the cover charge, drinks are unlimited.
If you like rock music at appropriately high volumes, Chango’s is your spot. Although most well-known for its seafood specialties, the bar hosts Rojo’s Band on Thursday and Saturday nights, and is becoming increasingly popular for its drink and happy hour specials. The party here continues until 3 am, and is one of Rocky Point’s best places for an immersive musical experience.
The Boo Bar
While the other bars and clubs on this list are cited for their cheap drinks, that’s not the case at Boo Bar. But what you’re paying for is the intimate, lively atmosphere and the oh-so-cool swings, yes swings, as bar stools. They also have a wheel to spin for prizes, with proceeds going to charity. The outdoor seating offers excellent water views as well.
So whether you’re looking for the famous, the busy, a certain music genre, or an atmospheric setting, you have lots of options available here in Rocky Point. Check out one of the places we’ve listed here, or find a hidden gem we haven’t mentioned.
