Located at the base of Bear Mountain Resort, Black Diamond Tavern is the typical post-hike come-down spot in Big Bear. Take that for what it is. Every weak and weathered hiker driving back down the hill stops at this roadside bar for an early evening recharge. And that means a beer, some nachos, and finally finding service to post all those top-of-the-mountain selfies.
Black Diamond Tavern is permanently closed.
