Merrimaker (Los Osos, CA)

This is the bar pictured in the Wikipedia entry about dive bars. It’s a friendly place and truly not that divey, although there’s a tiny back room where smokers congregate, if that sort of thing horrifies you.

Worthy of mention here though there’s only knee padding, nothing to soften the rail.


Sorry about the quality on this second photo — it’s a crop from a shot sneaked in through the side door.
