444 Alvarado St., Monterey
In the heart of Alvarado Street, Britannia Arms lets its guests live the dream of winning American Idol three nights a week—Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You can catch middle-aged men, CSUMB students, tourists and locals covering old country songs, belching Lady Gaga hits, and doing their best Elvis Presley impressions. And for an encore? A full bar complete with 24 beers on tap.
