Barmel

San Carlos and Seventh, Carmel (831) 626-3400

While there are many dive bars in Monterey County, there are none that turn into a dance party quite like Barmel does. This locals’ favorite has been the go-to spot for a good time for years. Unlike other neighborhoods, you’ll find in the crowd a wide variety of ages, from hipsters to middle-aged to the 90-year-old sailor dude who frequently smokes cigars outside. It’s kinda like that bar in Northern Exposure. With timeless drinks and occasionally timeless songs, you’ll fit right in – as long as you’re young at heart.
