My "home away from home," the 29 Palms Inn is just a cool place to get away from it all. The bar is a small but friendly place, and I guarantee you'll meet all sorts of neat folks, gay and straight, from around the world here. You may even find yourself sitting next to a rock or movie star! I love the martinis, which are made to perfection, and the premium Scotch goes down nicely on chilly winter nights. There's a very nice selection of wine, and also a good selection of brewskis, both domestic and imported. Anchor Steam is the draught beer, and it's delicious when it's 100+ outside.
Dress Code: There is no set "dress code" at the Inn, but casual to dressy is the norm around here. Polos and t-shirts in good taste with a decent pair of shorts and sandals are appropriate for the summer. Sweaters, turtlenecks, dress shirts, and slacks are usually the type of clothing worn during the winter season (October-April).
A favorite with locals and Marines, this is the place to be on Thursday nights. Karaoke is the hot thing here, and you'll hear the good along with the excruciatingly bad. Great place to check out hip-hugging jeans on Marines and construction workers! Again, be careful and use common sense.
Dress Code: Come as you are, and let it all hang out!
A sports pub hugely popular with Marines, this place has karaoke, occasional live music, and an Internet jukebox. Great place to watch the guys, if you're into that. A word of caution: This is not a gay bar, and some of the folks might get a bit rowdy if they think you're trying to hit up on them, especially if they're intoxicated. Just use common sense, and you'll be okay.
Dress Code: Come as you are. Glitz, glamour, and grunge can all be seen here.
