US actor Charlie Sheen, who has a long history of hard partying and scandal, has a new night spot in Mexico — his own, a local official said Saturday.

The perennially troubled Hollywood star hosted a gala opening night dinner Friday at his new bar, The Goose, in the Mexican resort area of Los Cabos, said state Tourism Secretary Ruben Reachi Lugo, who was not invited.

Many celebrities “spend their vacation, celebrate their birthdays or open a new restaurant or new development,” Lugo said of the resort area at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

Sheen, born Carlos Irwin Estevez, was abruptly booted from his long-running gig starring in the television comedy series, “Two and a Half Men” in 2011, after publicly insulting the producer.

He returned to television in 2012, with a somewhat tongue-in-cheek role playing a man sentenced to anger management counseling.

Son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of another actor, Emilio Estevez, Sheen first became famous for his roles in the Vietnam War drama “Platoon,” and 1980s greed parable “Wall Street.”

Highlights in his career have also included comedic roles in the “Major League” movies and “Top Gun” parodies “Hot Shots” and “Hot Shots: Part Deux.”
