Day Drinking at the Camel’s Breath Inn

Saturday, June 15

11 a.m.


Our next dive bar adventure starts:








The Camel's Breath Inn

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Lamplighter last month.

This month we’re going to mix things up a bit and do some Saturday Day Drinking!!

Plan now to join us at the Camel’s Breath Inn in Grantville.

The Camel’s Breath is an old school neighborhood bar. They’ve got a full bar, and a couple of pool tables, booths, video games, lots of televisions and a big front patio to hang out on if the weather is nice.

They also have a kitchen which is kind of essential for getting a good food base going for Day Drinking.

While this Meetup is not set up to be the beginning of a Saturday pub crawl, there is nothing that says you can’t start at the Camel’s Breath and move on from there. The Long Horn is close by and Pal Joey’s (not officially a Dive, but still an interesting bar) is up the hill, and The Library is a few miles down Mission Gorge Road.

Important Information:
The Camel’s Breath takes both cash and credit

Food: YES! They have a kitchen serving both breakfast and other bar foods.

Parking: Lots of free parking! The Camel’s Breath shares a parking lot with Armstrong Nursery, The Black Angus and a CVS so there are lots of places to park, although it’s always safest to Uber or Lyft for Day Drinking!

Looking forward to seeing everyone for Day Drinking on the 15th!

Some of our recent bars

It’s a tradition to get our bartenders to hold our sign. Here’s where we’ve recently been.

We’re always open to hearing about bars we haven’t visited. Drop us a line if there is someplace you think we should check out.
