The guy behind the bar was an older Mexican-American gentleman in western attire. Tuesday Night was dance night and several couples were dancing Country & Western style and a few slow dances. I had a great time drinking a couple of rum and cokes and talking with Erik (Odinthor). Not a place to go if you are young and looking to hook up; but the rum and cokes were strong enough to ease the pain. Associated with the Hacienda Hotel.
Dress Code: None that I noticed. Most people there were doing western-style dancing and wearing that style of clothing.
Stick n Stein is a sports bar on Sepulveda and Mariposa.
It's a good place to go to if there's a big game on (like USC vs UCLA) as the bar is quite large and it's fun when there's 50 fans going at another group of 50 fans.
When there's no big game on, well, I don't see the point of coming here as a tourist actually.
Don't get me wrong, it is a nice bar with locals. However, service is rather slow (it's a large bar so it takes a while for the waiters/waitresses to get to you), food is just ok - if you want bar food it's fine and it's located off a major road.
In itself it is not a problem of course, but drive 10 minutes South and you can have a drink by the Pacific Ocean at downtown Manhattan Beach.
So, come here for a big game, otherwise just drive past and have a drink steps from the beach instead :)
The Stick N Stine is a El Segundo bar that alot of locals go to and some professional sports persons.
The Stick N Stine is a resturant / bar that has a baseball look and feel to it.
El Segundo is a well known baseball town, hense the look and style inside.
When you walk inside you will first notice the trophy case with El Segundo baseball stars in it. As you make a right turn into the sports bar, you will see the baseball bat stair case to lead up to the balcony and the baseball bat chairs in the dinning area. Then you will notice the pool tables, video games, Offically signed sports jerseys and T.V.s with all kinds of sports playing.
If you made a left when you walked in, you would have seen the small train above making it's way around the resturant.
If that is not what you are into, vist Old Town Richmond Street ,and try out the bars or bistros on this two block long historic street.
Dress Code: There is really no dress code for any of these bars. But don't dress with super baggy clothes, or you will stick out like a sore thumb, and you wont have a good time.
