Small bar, good drinks, cool memorabilia on the walls. Went when Amy was working. Seemed like a locals spot, which I like. Not Swanky Carmel style.

Had a blast several times at this great dive! For those who don't get the attitude, it is the price of admission in a place a place like this...It keeps out those that it's meant to. True I thought the bartender was a bit abrupt,...More
