Why locals recommend it
It feels super neighborhoody; the decor hasn’t been changed since the beginning and they're not trying to impress anybody from out of town. The 1st and 3rd Thursday is Booty Bump, a west Berkeley favorite. It’s mostly in-the-know locals, but welcoming of all respectful outsiders. Mancub is a truly world class DJ putting it down just blocks from his house at the neighborhood bar. They serve great bar food from noon til 1:00am—order the nachos or the BLT.
Tips from locals
This place used to be super divey and have wonderfully bad live music all the time (and let us in when I was in high school) - it's been renovated since then, but remains close to my heart ;)
This place is so grungy.. Truly a dive. But fun, cheap drinks, a pation people love to talk on smoke on.
Slightly divey local bar. Very fun place to hang out, but it can get crazy on a Friday or Saturday night so be forewarned! Great spot for dancing nearby.
Solid dive bar with live music and a back patio. It's a fun place to grab a drink with friends - just don't expect anything too fancy!

“Great Korean food in a small, cheap, and friendly little corner restaurant. It's just a little too far to walk, unfortunately, and Ashby is no fun to walk on anyway. But it's worth the drive. ”
