The Kensington Club

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Silver Fox last month! We had a great time!

This month we are celebrating the 9th Anniversary of Dive Bar of the Month by heading to the Kensington Club in Kensington.

The Ken Club has been around for decades. With a bar in one room and a stage in another, it’s a great place to hang out. The bar side is long, skinny, and dark and also houses a couple of pool tables, shuffleboard, pinball, a few booths and an interesting collection of drinking memorabilia, not to mention a fun mural as you walk in the front door. There’s a full bar, a jukebox, and great ambiance.

If you’ve never been to the Ken Club, now is your chance! Put it on your calendar for the 27th and join us.

Important info: The Ken Club is CASH ONLY!! There is an ATM on site if you forget.

FOOD: Like all good Dive Bars, there is no food served at the Ken, but you are more than welcome to bring something in. It’s Kensington, you have lots of food choices near by.

PARKING: Street parking only. Best bet is to use Uber or Lyft and not worry about it.

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.
