Sammy Hagar to Open Vegas Cabo Wabo Cantina
Sammy Hagar is ready to rock Vegas – Cabo style, with the opening of Cabo Wabo Cantina in early November inside Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.   On Friday, December 4, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will host an official grand opening bash with a live performance by his band, the Waboritas. The two-level, 15,000-square-foot live music venue, cantina and restaurant will be located directly on Las Vegas Boulevard across from the new CityCenter complex.

“I’m ecstatic to introduce Las Vegas to the Cabo Wabo lifestyle,” said Cabo Wabo founder, Sammy Hagar. “The cantina’s fun-loving, fiesta atmosphere brings a rock and roll vibe to the heart of Las Vegas like people have never seen before. We are going to rock the Strip!”

“We are thrilled to team up with rock legend Sammy Hagar in opening the Vegas Cabo Wabo Cantina,” said Miracle Mile Shops co-owner David Edelstein. “Miracle Mile Shops is one of Las Vegas’ premiere dining, entertainment and shopping destinations thanks to our ever growing roster of exciting new tenants like Cabo Wabo Cantina.”

Cabo Wabo Cantina transformed Cabo San Lucas from a sleepy Mexican town into a major tourism and party destination, and the new Miracle Mile Shops offshoot is sure to bring the same vibrancy and laid back attitude to Las Vegas with an entirely new hard rockin’ dining and nightlife experience. Plus, it’s not uncommon for Hagar to sneak in for a surprise performance.

Executive Chef Jerrold Heinz, a Texas native, has developed a menu that combines Tex-Mex and coastal Mexican with contemporary flare, with an emphasis on an array of fajita selections.

Menu items range from mild yet flavorful dishes to extra spicy plates, and will feature a few American favorites such as the Waboburger and a signature spin on hot wings. Considered his specialty, Heinz has spent years perfecting his fajita recipe and uses a pressurized method to prepare and marinate skirt steak for maximum flavor and tenderness. The fajitas are served with 12” hand-rolled flour tortillas and an array of accompaniments. Other main courses include tacos al carbon, fajita beef burrito, chipotle chicken and an array of combination plates. Cabo Wabo features such appetizer selections as spicy shrimp quesadillas, guacamole prepared tableside and fajita nachos with grilled poblanos, as well as an array of delicious desserts including a chocolate brownie served with a cajete caramel sauce and tres leches cake.

The cocktail menu will place a heavy emphasis on Hagar’s favorite spirit, tequila, and will feature an array of margaritas and other refreshing cocktails perfect for cooling off a hot day in the desert. Specialty drinks include a coconut margarita made with Cabo Wabo Blanco tequila, cream of coconut, pineapple juice, sweet and sour, orange liqueur and shaved, toasted coconut. The signature Waborita is made with fresh lime juice, Cointreau, Cabo Wabo Tequila and a splash of Grand Marnier. Spirit-infused popsicles will cool off guests in the summertime.

The Cabo Wabo retail store will be packed with the world-famous logo merchandise for visitors wanting to take a piece of the Cantina home. T-shirts, caps, shot glasses and much more will be available for purchase just outside Cabo Wabo at the north entrance of Miracle Mile Shops. And for guests on the go, the adjacent Daiquiri Bar will serve an array of frozen cocktails.

Cabo Wabo Cantina at Miracle Mile Shops will be the flagship U.S. location for the legendary rock and roll restaurant. The original opened in Cabo San Lucas in 1990, and later became the inspiration for what is now one of the most recognizable tequila brands in the world, Cabo Wabo Tequila.
