nightlife in pismo

can anyone tell me where a group of adults (mixed ages 26 - young 50) can go at night time in pismo. we were there for one night only last year and when walking towards the pier came across a lively albeit a little rough pub. Is there anywhere recommended in this area which is lively but smart?

Oh, you must have found Harry's Bar! That place is more than a little rough around the edges. :-)

I don't know about lively, but the restaurant on the 3rd floor of the SeaVenture Resort has a very nice bar area. They even have a deck outside that overlooks the beach/pier, but that whole floor is open with floor to ceiling windows that accentuate the view.

F. McClintock's Saloon & Dining House on the other side of the highway would probably be a fun place to grab a drink or two or..... :-)

Or if you're interested in a pitcher of beer and a show, just south of Pismo Beach is Great America Melodrama

Cars/pubs in SLO (all located downtown):

Bull's Tavern

The Library

Creekside Brewing Company

There is also Mongo's Saloon in Grover Beach, which neighbors Pismo at the corner of Grand Ave and 4th Street.
