Mother's Tavern

16701 Pacific Coast Highway
Sunset Beach, CA 90742
A locals-heavy Sunset Beach spot, Mother's Tavern is a tiny bar that packs a large crowd. The building is designed to look like a barn, with its pitched roof and wooden, peanut-shell-covered floor. The rafters are adorned with signed dollar bills, large bras and thongs. Brews and other libations are poured in glass Mason jars. Adding to the barnyard vibe, a friendly Australian sheepdog patrols the room, mingling with revelers and licking the shells on the floor. A small stage allows for live entertainment, and the jukebox rocks a constant rotation of rockabilly and psychobilly jams.
