Barrel Bar

Scoop Approved

This rickety little spot over the lagoon is true hidden gem.  A jukebox, friendly local customers and a killer sunset view, finding it might be a tad bit difficult but it’s well worth it.

Bring some papaya if you want to lure over the very cool looking “pet” iguana.  I’ve heard that he will walk right across the bar, but until I see it?  I consider it a San Pedro myth.

    From a reader named Amy – Just curious if you have ever stumbled on to the Barrel Bar? Probably not blog worthy. A very small nondescript place on the lagoon north of Richie’s where we, (total strangers), were treated like family the first time we dropped in. The beer is cold and the food served is whatever the owners are fixing for lunch. We have been on the receiving end of BBQ chicken, shrimp, tortillas…home cooked and delicious. VERY RUSTIC is probably an understatement, but perfect for a couple of rednecks from Idaho! It’s places like the Barrel Bar that brings us back to AC time and time again. Love your blog.
