Preps and rockabilly scenesters comprise most of the clientele at this small, kitschy Alameda bar. It’s a little divey, but only in the best sense of the word: The drinks are strong, it’s not pretentious, and it’s even dog-friendly. Characterized by lava lamps and a checkerboard floor, Lost Weekend also features a DJ on Thursdays, a jukebox stocked with Eighties, rock, and punk, plus a full bar and pool table. It has an enclosed smoking patio and it’s right next to the 51A bus stop, an area where it’s relatively safe to walk around late at night. Plenty of street parking is available. Cash only.
Hours: Mon.-Fri. 2 p.m.-2 a.m.; Sat.-Sun. 12 p.m.-2 a.m.
