Sancho Panza closed 04 April 2008
“Changes have come to Sancho Panza and sadly we will be closing as Sancho Panza Wine Bistro. We are selling the restaurant and it will reopen in the near future under another name.”
04 April 2008 – Ron Kleist
At Sancho Panza Wine Bistro Restaurant and Jazz Club we try to provide the best ingredients to enjoy an evening out in our desert paradise. Our food has received excellent reviews in nearly all the major food and wine magazines in the United States and some in Europe as well as in the best international travel guides.
Besides very fine cuisine, we offer the best and fairest wine list in Cabo San Lucas and Los Cabos, the coolest bar, Baja California’s best music, and the finest company on the planet. All provided in a casually elegant and stimulating atmosphere. If that sounds like something you might enjoy – stop by and check it out!
Taking its name from Spanish literature (Sancho Panza was Don Quixote’s loyal servant in the classic novel written by Miguel de Cervantes in 1604), the interiors are decorated with Picasso, Dali, and Miro motifs, with Cuban art hanging on the walls. LosCabosGuide.com
Excerpt from Nightlife article – Los Cabos Magazine Issue 5 – 1997-98. Kokomo, a new club on the party circuit, only recently opened, has quickly become a popular spot. Kokomo features a big dance floor and great dance music. They have added a show featuring local dancers starting at around 8 p.m. The dance-party crowd usually hits this spot around 10:00 p.m., before they make their way up Boulevard Marina on the way to El Squid Roe. Kokomo Cabo closed March 2001.
Rio Grill opened during 1989. This business has been closed since before 2004. There was a 25 year reunion celebration in Cabo on March 27, 2015.

If your middle name is Party!, there are any number of locations to hit after the beach, and Rio Grill is among the best. This bar and restaurant is a favorite hangout offering great soft rock, reggae and a live band for most of the year. The marathon four-hour happy hour, starting at 4:00 p.m. could spell trouble, but they wisely provide free munchies. Don’t be surprised if the waiters swing the ladies at your table into a quick salsa. Larger than it appears, the Rio Grill features a big open patio and a sheltered dining under a palapa roof, in addition to the covered bar area.
