Used to go to the Peso all the time back in the day, went back recently, fantastic. We are in our 50's and one of the great things about the Peso is that it is just a neighborhood dive bar. All are welcome.

In a town with only million dollar homes expensive cars you walk into this place and can feel what this place was like 40 or 50 years ago. Actually working class people tattoos stiff free poured drinks actually friendly locals. When ever I get to larkspur to visit family and friends I always pop in there for a few drinks. I think you should also but dont drink and drive.

I LOVE this place! It's a great circular bar full of colorful locals in the heart of quaint downtown Larkspur! Many T.V.s enable you to watch YOUR game. Though not a restaurant of any kind, they DO have freshly popped popcorn for free and chips to purchase. Often on BIG GAME days, locals will organize a pot luck of yummy goodies! Great internet jukebox, and recently added air conditioning make this a fab place to pull up a stool and hang out! Pool tables and shuffle board are available for those not wanting to bellied up to the bar. Late night scene is a MUCH younger crowd and can get rowdy enough to need the bouncers at the door. Pete, Rebel, Tommy, Gordon, and Cimarron are a few of the bartenders that can mix you up a glass of deliciousness! They have about 15 beers on tap and have happy hours on Mondays and Thursday from 4 to 6. Check it out if you appreciate a great old "dive" bar!!

We were looking for a sports bar to watch a football game and refered to here by the Marriott. Not what we expected. A little dump on the corner, but what a great place. Lots of TVs. Lots of colorful locals (most probably actually living in 5 million dollar homes). We were made to feel right at home. Pete, the only bartender handling 25-30 customers effortlessly was great. We asked if they had food , his response "if we did would you want to eat it!" But you can walk right outside and bring some great food back. Just don't make my fateful mistake of not bringing a sandwich back for Pete!

In San Francisco, if you're tired of street people hassling you, or getting "bumped" in crowded bars by pick pockets, or the SFPD following you as you leave the block and town headed north, and you live in or near central Marin, have your last call here on a night out. Or even your last 2 drinks.

Historic old structure. Parking is easy. Good regular crowd. Good beer selection. Prices are right. You won't be hassled here. And, the "street people" aren't "street people" but likely are some of your old high school buddies you'd want to catch up with anyway.

It's a place to relax. Call it a dive bar if you want. If you want a drink, they'll pay attention. If you'd prefer to stand outside on the corner to talk, that's cool too. No one will care.

You're not here for a show or to pick up a gal at the bar. Or to impress anyone. You're here to chill out.
