    The Sand Bar, Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo extension, opens in Huntington Beach
    • May 3, 2024

    One year after opening Cabo Wabo Beach Club inside the Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach, Sammy Hagar, the restauranteur and noted frontman of such aural outfits as Van Halen and Montrose, has softly opened the Sand Bar, a beachside extension of his nearby restaurant.

    The Sand Bar, located a stone’s throw from the sand, features a 2,100-square-foot patio with 100 seats, which offers full-service dining. Counter service is also available for to-go meals.

    Menu highlights include such starters as grilled esquites, Caesar salad and coctel de camarones. Heartier fare like sandwiches (brisket, sausage and turkey breast) and thin-crust pizzas (cheese, vegetable and pepperoni) also make appearances. And a coconut tres leches cake ($6) and churros funnel cake ($10) round out the dessert menu. The lil’ surfers menu offers the wee ones a choice of a burger ($10), chicken tenders ($10) or a turkey sandwich ($12).

    The roster of libations include crafts cocktails, like the Purple Rocker ($16), a violet-hued libation of rum, ube and orgeat syrups, fresh lime and mint; slushy cocktails ranging from virgin to tequila-, rum- or vodka-spiked ($8-$16), beers; tequilas and other strong spirits.

    “The Cabo Wabo brand was born on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas, so it only seems fitting to have it return to its roots with this new oceanfront extension,” said Sammy Hagar in a written statement. “As an Orange County resident, I have enjoyed many sun-filled days and magical sunsets on Huntington Beach, and adding great food, cocktails and music completes the experience.”

    The new restaurant will offer year-round dining Wednesday through Sunday from noon until sunset. Its official grand opening will be Friday, May 17.

    Hagar’s latest Huntington Beach eatery comes on the heels of restauranteur Alicia Cox’s SeaLegs at the Beach and Sahara Sandbar & Pizza, which reopened in time for the summer season.
