The truest locals hangout. If you're tired of the sweater tied around the neck set, go to Sade's. Act right and you'll fit in. Act like you expect the world to stop for you, and you might want to go somewhere else down the street.

Sade's specializes in house made mixes and they have quite a variety to offer. The staff is very friendly even when they get busy. And we found time to relax as well.

Tip 1 : it's "the" place for late night drinks. Tip 2: talk to the other guests. The locals here are the greatest most entertaining bunch you could want to meet. A must do in Carmel. Look for Zach and ask him about his Top hat. Of find your lost Irish cousins ...the MacSweeney's ....who are really Sweeney's. These locals... More

We had a wonderful time...Thanks to our bartender Parker. The dice game was fun and the patrons were a blast. Such a wonderful atmosphere!

There are lots of reviews for this bar ... But you either LOVE IT or HATE IT. My husband and his pals have gone here for years every time they go to Carmel .. I just went for the first time this New Years weekend.. Frank was behind the bar when I walked in to meet my husband and our... More

We stopped in on a Sunday evening after dinner; and were the only two people in the bar. Our bartender was Amy and we had a great time knocking back cocktails and talking about Carlsbad vs. Southern California. This is a bar. Just stiff drinks. No food and little atmosphere (which isn't a negative; just a statement). When we paid... More

First of all the only downside is that is only sells bottled beer. It also allows smoking which may not to be anyone's taste. However, the decor is smart and traditional American. But the star of the pub is the grouchy and grumpy old bigot who runs the bar - Frank. Totally un pc and extremely right wing. He couldn't... More

We walked by this place and knew instantly it was our kind of bar. We met Frank the owner on our second day in town. Went back every day for insults and cocktails at happy hour! This place is fun BUT if you don't get the joke, are irritatingly PC and can't roll with the punches, it's not for you.... More

Go during the day. It's when the owner runs the bar. I'm pretty sure he was the inspiration for Clint Eastwood's character in the movie Gran Torino.

Small bar, good drinks, cool memorabilia on the walls. Went when Amy was working. Seemed like a locals spot, which I like. Not Swanky Carmel style.
