Just 20 minutes up PCH from SLO is Morro Bay, a little beach town famous for a giant rock that juts out of the ocean. It’s also a great place to watch the sunset. And, while the town is lined with plenty of ocean-facing bars, our favorite is The Libertine Pub. The second location of the popular SLO brewery (which specializes in sours), Libertine Pub has a divey feel, a solid bar food menu if you get hungry, live music, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the water. This is also an ideal pre-drinks spot before heading up to dinner at Cass House.
