I haven't been in a long time but I remember a pub in Fairhaven called Archer's or something like that (don't know if it's still there though). The place I have been recently (and liked a lot) is Boundary Bay Brewery which is closer to downtown.

Archer Ale House is still there.

Boundary Bay is another good suggestion, but you'd need to drive there from Fairhaven. It's a little hard to find, so make sure you print out a map or memorize the route.

Hope I'm not too late - Archer's is quiet, but nice. The Fairhaven (or whatever it is calling itself now) across the street from Dos Padres is your best bet for a live band and anything resembling "nightlife" - bonus the food is good!

A lot of the great bars / band venues have closed in the last few years - getting pushed out by the gentrification / new condo builds downtown.
