Sammy Hagar, the owner of El Paseo, is a Grammy-winning musician and song-writer who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Van Halen. In 1990, he launched the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Mexico, turning a lifelong passion for great food, music and spirits into a thriving brand encompassing 10 restaurants, Santo Mezquila, Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, and Cabo Wabo Tequila. Hagar’s passion for food and fine spirits was formed at a young age by his grandfather, a chef who cooked for U.S. presidents and was a master at living off the land. Today, he brings his positive energy to help those in need by supporting numerous charities around the country through the Hagar Family Foundation. When not on the road performing, Sammy splits his time between California, Hawaii and Mexico.
