We stopped here for a drink before dinner. It's a cute little old bar and the service and drinks were great. It's about the only thing open late in Carmel. Definitely go again!

Stopped in here recently on a visit with some friends for a break and an adult beverage. Only one other patron at the bar. The bartender was not very welcoming and acted as though we were intruding. She remained seated behind the bar the entire time conversing with that other patron who obviously was a local. We made the mistake... More

Very basic but great service bar right in the middle of Carmel. Great selection but a great place to grab a drink.

The truest locals hangout. If you're tired of the sweater tied around the neck set, go to Sade's. Act right and you'll fit in. Act like you expect the world to stop for you, and you might want to go somewhere else down the street.

Sade's specializes in house made mixes and they have quite a variety to offer. The staff is very friendly even when they get busy. And we found time to relax as well.

Tip 1 : it's "the" place for late night drinks. Tip 2: talk to the other guests. The locals here are the greatest most entertaining bunch you could want to meet. A must do in Carmel. Look for Zach and ask him about his Top hat. Of find your lost Irish cousins ...the MacSweeney's ....who are really Sweeney's. These locals... More

We stopped in on a Sunday evening after dinner; and were the only two people in the bar. Our bartender was Amy and we had a great time knocking back cocktails and talking about Carlsbad vs. Southern California. This is a bar. Just stiff drinks. No food and little atmosphere (which isn't a negative; just a statement). When we paid... More

First of all the only downside is that is only sells bottled beer. It also allows smoking which may not to be anyone's taste. However, the decor is smart and traditional American. But the star of the pub is the grouchy and grumpy old bigot who runs the bar - Frank. Totally un pc and extremely right wing. He couldn't... More
