Best of Monterey Bay® Visitors Guide

DRINKS Deja Blue There’s a constant lineup of music at this bar and nightclub, with live jazz on Wednesdays, karaoke on Thursdays, an R&B DJ on Fridays, blues on Saturdays and reggae on Sundays. You can also order classic cocktails and classic soul food. 500 Broadway Ave., Seaside. (831) 383-2553, Lynn’s Arcade A subhead is in order here: A Pinball Parlor and Can Slingery. And no, they don’t throw cans your way, but they stock a rotating selection of beer—and non-alcoholic drinks; Lynn’s caters to all ages. There’s a fee to enter, but all games are free to play once you’re in. 1760 Fremont Blvd., Seaside. (831) 641-7173, Other Brother Beer Co. This airy taproom quickly became a locals watering hole and hangout spot after opening in 2019, and recently added a mini-mart to shop for retail goods including beer, olive oil, baked goods and more. The beers are award winners. 877 Broadway Ave., Seaside. (831) 747-1106, Post No Bills A place for high-quality (and hard-to-find) craft beer; buy it by the pint or by the bottle, drink it there amid the industrial decor and ample natural light, or take it home with you. It’s a locals gathering place for draft beers, sipped amid the industrial decor. 600 Ortiz Ave., Sand City. (831) 324-4667, SOUTH COUNTY The Cork & Plough While the kitchen concentrates on local and seasonal, the bar tends toward edgy. Yes, they serve beers, wines by the glass and traditional cocktails, too. House-made sodas, as well. 200 Broadway St., King City. (831) 386-9491, Fourth Street Tap House The guiding philosophy here is all about great craft beer, but there’s more than that—great food courtesy of a range of partnering food trucks, a community gathering spot, and a beer garden with sports on TV. 25 4th St., Gonzales. 675-5095, fourthstreettaphouse. com Pozzi’s Stampede A proper saloon is a requirement for South Monterey County, and you’ll find it in downtown King City. 207 Broadway St., King City.
