If you’re looking for that ‘Cheers’ feeling where everybody knows your name, belly up to the downstairs bar to enjoy the famous “Bruno’s Big Bloody” or venture upstairs to “The Jim” Sports Lounge, (recently voted Best Sports Bar in Santa Cruz County by Santa Cruz Waves readers) to play pool, ping pong, foosball, shuffleboard or darts. If you’re feeling outdoorsy, enjoy the beautiful weather on our upstairs deck sipping cocktails under cafe lights by one of our fire tables.VISIT WEBSITE ››
