HOW IT ALL STARTED...
Like all bad ideas, it came late one night in 1989 when Carlos Anderson ordered one more chalupa and Billy asked for another round of mezcal. They thought it would be a good idea to leave Carlos O’Brian’s in Puerto Vallarta and move to the Baja California Sur desert. It was there that an abandoned warehouse was rented and began what is now known as El Squid Roe. Somehow this seemingly “bad” idea became brilliant.
After noticing all the customers roaming outside early mornings, asking for a tour of the place. It was then when Billy decided to shower early and open the doors from 9:00 am and serve breakfast. As years went by, some strange characters joined the team, which makes the experience even more strange today. We realized there wasn’t enough space for all our customers who dine, dance, and roam through the floor; so we decided to add a second and with time a third floor.
30 years later, El Squid Roe is known as the best party in Baja and therefore has attracted the likes of Beyoncé, Luis Miguel, Mariah Carey, Floyd Mayweather, Tupac, Dana White, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Rihanna, Jamie Foxx, Oscar De La Hoya, Alex Rodriguez, Tony Romo, Tito Ortiz, 50 Cent, and many other celebrities. As locals and tourists alike agree, this place has been an icon in Cabo for many years… And if after reading this you’re still interested in knowing more about us, visit our website www.ElSquidRoe.com or ask your waiter – and if he doesn’t know the answer, we’re sure he’ll make something up.
