Live Oak Tavern
If you love a great old bar that's been there forever and is still going strong without having changed much (just like all of us at Sacramento Party Bus do!), Live Oak Tavern is the ultimate throwback, and we don't mean in a cheesy way. We're not sure if this place was established in the 1950s or 1960s but you can tell that it's a real piece of yesteryear and we just love it. They've got a nice selection of beers and there's always a friendly bartender here who knows how to serve a mean drink. Note that this is a cash only establishment and there's no ATM, so stop at one before you stop in. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are the best nights.

The Sacramento Party Bus staff just loves the clever name of this bar! Liberal bull is a very cool place, also a throwback to yesteryear like the bar mentioned above, and also in the same charming way. They keep it nice and clean here and everybody that works there is super friendly. This one is also a cash only establishment but if they've stayed in business this long that way, why change it now? Just make a quick stop at an ATM before you come in. No draft beer but the bottles are just fine, super cheap and ice cold just like they should be. If you stop into an old fashioned dive bar like this, you're not looking for a microbrew anyway.

Another one of Sacramento Party Bus's favorite dive bars, Valencia Club can be found in nearby Penryn and you'll really love this country bar! They've got karaoke here as well as live bands, so music lovers will find themselves feeling right at home. The pub food is simply delicious, including the standards like hamburgers, onion rings, and wings, plus some more modern bar fare such as tacos, chicken sandwiches, and sweet potato fries! These aren't plain burgers here either! You can grab a delicious jalapeno burger or a bourbon chicken sandwich. Delish! Great atmosphere and cool people.

AMF Rocklin Lanes
If you love to head out with your friends on a Sacramento Party Bus and go bowling as a group, AMF Rocklin Lanes is your essential stop in the Loomis area. They've got great food here, which is a major perk when you're spending a few hours in the bowling alley, and we love the drinks there as well. The unlimited bowling for ten bucks is also a huge draw for everybody! You just cannot beat that price. Great place to throw a birthday party. They play lots of golden oldies here too so if you love a great retro time, you'll definitely enjoy yourself here. Highly recommended by Sacramento Party Bus!

Loree's Little Shack
Dive bar, dive bar, dive bar... and we love it! If you too can appreciate a really great dive bar, then you owe it to yourself to check out Loree's Little Shack when you're traveling with Sacramento Party Bus. This is one of those cozy spots where your drinks are served in mason jars and you can rock out with some really cool karaoke after you've thrown back a cold one or two! They've got good bar fare here including garlic fries that are simply delicious. The drink prices are nice and cheap here too and it's a great idea to grab a pitcher of beer to save yourself even more money. Always a fun time here!
