Sammy Hagar announced in front of 18,000+ fans during his St. Louis concert Saturday (May 14) that he would open a Cabo Wabo Cantina in spring 2007 in St. Louis' new $290 million Bottle District. The St. Louis Cabo Wabo Cantina is expected to be one of the select markets to which Sammy will bring Cantinas over the next few years."I love St. Louis!" said Sammy Hagar, legendary rocker and the genius behind the Cabo Wabo brand. "I was given the name Red Rocker in St. Louis. I love the people here. I can't wait till we're open." The current Cabo Wabo Cantinas located in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and South Lake Tahoe, Nevada are known for serving up authentic Mexican cuisine, signature Cabo Wabo Tequilas and the flavor, feel and fun of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Evenings feature an active bar with live entertainment and a fun dining atmosphere. Cabo Wabo also provides late night dining perfect for any social gathering. "We're rockin' now!" said Dan McGuire, CEO of BDP, LLC, the developer of The Bottle District. "Sammy Hagar is one of the best rock 'n roll entertainers alive. He has built the Cabo Wabo brand with passion. We're thrilled to bring the Cabo Wabo experience to The Bottle District and St. Louis." Sammy Hagar is known for visiting his Cantinas and playing impromptu concerts with many of his industry friends. At Cabo Wabo Cantinas, visitors always expect to have a Cabo Wabo experience inspired by the Red Rocker and are occasionally rewarded with the appearance of famous guests. "St. Louis is a key market for Cabo Wabo," said Barry Augus, president of Cabo Wabo Enterprises. "The Bottle District promises to be a marquee destination that will redefine and reenergize downtown St. Louis. We're proud to be a part of that revitalization." The Cabo Wabo Cantina will include a lighthouse modeled after the design of the first Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It will be constructed in a prime location within The Bottle District, and be visible from blocks away. A grand opening extravaganza is planned for spring 2007.
