Molly's Pub (Clear Lake)

Home of the lauded Wednesday Big Ass Beer nights and Clear Lake's most eclectic group of barflies, Molly's Pub has been the Bay Area's answer to indie Inner-Loop bars for over a decade. You can expect every stripe and strain of drinker to converge on this tucked-away haunt for cheap booze and the storied dartboards. At one table, you might find pierced and tattooed girls with Bettie Page bangs chatting it up, while two feet away thirsty boardshort-clad brahs pound Bull Blasters. It makes for strange hook-ups and even better people-watching, while the patio with a full working bar makes drinking and smoking bearable on even the warmest NASA country nights.
