As far as dive bars go this one is a gem of all gems. Lots of local color. This place is a must if you are into Americana bar scene. Do not miss.

Attracted by the classic "dive bar" appellation- we bit. Wow. A little seedier than expected.Classic cougar in one corner flirting with a kid her son's age and an old Romeo - comb over- gold chains- waving a $100 bill in front of a young interested woman. Waitress had a beehive. Walk a block to any other place...

The Peso is your typical dive bar(goldmine if you own it) that resides in the sleepy town of Larkspur. The problem is that if you don't want a shot and a beer the bartenders on the weekends don't know how to figure out how to make you a decent cocktail and will tell you outright that they are too busy. It's not like the people that want shots and beers are going to run away to another bar because this is the only place in town. Also, make sure you tip them for their lousy service and attitude, because if you don't, they might just take your drinks and have the bouncer throw you out. That happened to some friends of mine. Brilliant customer service from the pea brains that work behind the bar. Remember, 1+1=2, 2+2=4, etc., etc. Do they even server food?

Came here as my girlfriends relative used to drink here all the time about 20 years ago so it was more of a experience than just a quick visit. Nice bartenders, happy hour was 4-6 with a dollar of all draughts and bottles, no outside area though

Every town needs a great dive bar and the Silver Peso does that for Larkspur. It is a quaint little historic town with lovely shops, cafes and 5 star restaurants. Right in the middle of town you see this adorable Bar. The local drinkers show up,daily and drink a lot of the day. Then there are the college students both local and those who are away and come home for holidays and summer. The place is packed with 20 and 30 something's. They have a great pool table and an awesome shuffle table that is super cool. At night they stay open until 2:00 a.m. so when you need to CARRY ON when the restaurants close down off to the Silver Peso you go. This is a very safe bar where locals young and old hang. It is kept under careful watch by the Central Marin Police Dept so don't go overboard. Marin is serious about cracking down on DUI. Have fun!
