Established in 1873, the Clayton Club Saloon truly echoes its Old West heritage with beat-up cowboy boots dangling from the ceiling, wood-plank floors, and patrons who look as if they’ve been bellying up to the bar just as long. The Harley-Davidson-clad customers at this establishment don’t wait for nightfall to start partying; they’re smoking cigarettes on the dirt patio out back, playing pool, or listening to some of the rock ’n’ roll bands playing in the back of the bar. For this small community of about 11,000, the saloon is one of the few, if only, nighttime entertainment options in the quaint, rustic “downtown.” And that’s just as well, since this secluded town at the end of Ygnacio Valley Road doesn’t have its own gas station.

Hours: Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m.-2 a.m., Sat.-Sun. 10 a.m.-2 a.m.
