Drinks & Nightlife

Legendary musicians such as Jerry Garcia and Janis Joplin along with many others frequented the THE PAPERMILL CREEK SALOON, Located at 1 Castro St, Forest Knolls, CA, 94933, just off Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Excerpt from the local paper: "WEST MARIN SALOON NURTURING A NEW LIVE MUSIC SCENE…" "A 110-year-old watering hole in the heart of the forested San Geronimo Valley proudly advertises itself as 'The best historic dive bar in Marin.' In just the past couple of years, this little bar has become the unlikely home of a vibrant live music scene that may be the best kept secret in Marin."(...From Marin IJ article by Paul Liberatore)" See photo.

It's touristy & expensive, but weigh that against world famous wineries, a vintage train and historic towns WITH delicious wine tastings. YUMMY! I recommend bringing your own wine and paying the $20 corkage. The station has a lovely gift shop to start that has a wonderful selection of Sonoma and Napa varietals at good prices. This is an all around fun adventure to do with your besties or sweetie.
