Watson's Bar & Grill

The Watson Bar and Grill is a dive bar for the true dive-bar devotee. Through a miasma of cigarette smoke, one can make out a U-shaped bar densely populated by the bar's grizzled yet gracious inhabitants. Conveniently located in the heart of south county, the Watson Bar and Grill is an ideal location to grab a cold one and commiserate with your fellow laborer after a day of backbreaking work. If conversation wanes, there's always a sports game on the tube or the tried-and-true dartboard (located in a dark corner festively lit by Christmas lights). Though it does offer a menu comprised of typical bar fare, the watering hole maintains no illusions of its primary appeal, which is clearly demarcated by the sign on the building's exterior: DRINK.
