Sidecar Bar

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Live Wire to close out 2019. Now on to 2020!

This month we are headed out to the Sidecar on Morena Blvd. The Sidecar is part Dive/part Arcade. They have a full bar with $6 mules on Wednesday nights and a robust beer list. There’s video games, foosball, pool, and old school, metal darts. And of course, popcorn. Their slogan says it all: Not too divey, not too douchey.

Plan now to join us!

Important info:
Cash or Credit? They take both.

Food: They don’t serve food (except for the popcorn) but you are welcome to bring food in.

Parking: There are a few spots out in front and after 5 p.m. you are welcome to park in the lot next to the bar, otherwise it is street parking.

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.
