Visitor Tips and News About Bar Covered with Pennies - Penny Bar
Not safe to be in during an earthquake, as it warns you on the front window when entering. Looks very sketchy. In the middle of nowhere. Sundays only open 10-3. Building and property for sale. We looked in through the windows and took some pics. Great place to jump out and scare your friends![Sarah Winchester, 10/16/2014]
We've popped in during open hours. It has character -- a hangout for locals, though friendly enough if you're from beyond the oil fields.
Go there for dinner (better service). Pennies are being added to the decor daily![Sydney Harter, 08/16/2010]
The Penny Bar is in the historic McKittrick hotel. It's not much to look at from the outside, but once inside you will be dazzled by floor-to-ceiling pennies and the quirky decor. Over one million pennies are glued to everything -- the floor, the walls, the pool table, the TV, and more. It's a really fun little place to sing along to the jukebox, play pool, drink some beers and eat amazing rib-eye steaks. If you are lucky enough to meet the owners Annie and Mike (who are often there working) then you will encounter two of the most genuinely friendly, and fun people the west coast has to offer.
If you call ahead, for birthdays or special occasions, Annie will make you one of her "naughty" cakes which taste amazing and are a riot to look at (She also makes pg-rated cakes, but the R-rated ones are a lot of fun). My family has been going to the Penny bar for years.[Sarah, 11/24/2009]
