Ricky's dive bar has been around since forever, and you'll find Ricky himself on the giant sign and behind the bar most nights, always ready for a party. Add a dollar with your name or something nasty written on it to the wall, and admire all the old photos and history while having a couple tequila shots.

Iconic Papas & Beer is the Rosarito staple of beach party scenes. With multiple bars, levels, and extensions onto the beach, it can hold over 5,000 people and often hosts concerts, DJs, and events. Expect to pay "gringo prices," a cover charge in high season/weekends, and a rowdy younger scene. In off-season or mid-week, it can be pleasant and not as wild.
