Ye Olde Plank Inn (Imperial Beach, California)
Ye Olde Plank Inn, 24 Palm Avenue, Imperial Beach California. This is the most South Western bar in the United States of America. It opened up 126 years ago and is still going on strong. Years ago a huge wave caused some damage, but now condos are built beside it between the bar and the ocean and should protect it from any other rogue wave. It is a stones throw from the beach. They have a rectangular sit up bar that can hold around 20 people. The interior roof has the thatched look with one dollar bills stuffed everywhere. 10 different beer on tap. In the back there are two pool tables. They have an out side area that is open in the middle and covered around the sides. A testament to the great weather here! Every Saturday it is $2.50 Vodka drinks. Apparently it gets filled up really early. Go figure this place opens up at 6 am every day of the year. I was told it is the local older people who are out for a walk that come in early and take advantage of the 25 cent coffee. The locals are very friendly and always enjoy getting involved in a conversation. This place has tons of character. I give this bar two thumbs up for sure!!!
