Old Town Saloon

Thanks to everyone who made it out to Ocean Beach last month for Day Drinking!

This month we are headed to Old Town to an old favorite, the Old Town Saloon.

A dark, cool haven in the middle of Old Town tourist-central, the Saloon has a full bar, with lots of bar seating, 3 pool tables, a jukebox, jello shots, and great prices. They also are one of the few bars to have one of our favorite things that you can find in a Dive Bar. I’m not going to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say: remember to bring your quarters!


CASH OR CREDIT? They take both

PARKING: There are a couple of parking lots close by, and there is street parking. Or be smart and Uber or Lyft to the saloon.

FOOD: They don’t serve food but hey, it’s Old Town! There are a ton of places nearby to choose from for food.

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.
