NileGuide Expert tip:
After rainy days, don't venture here - under sea level the bar is often filled toe deep with water and closed for business.
Though it's a typical "dive bar," Beachcomber defines Mission Beach. Locals stand in line to enjoy the $1 beers on Thursday nights, whiffing in the fresh beach smell and adorning Mexican, late-night shack. Though the dance floor is often packed, Beachcomber isn't filled with gyrating patrons - rather, locals in bathing suits and shorts fill the area with simply their bodies, chatting amongst themselves while downing the specialty. Venture up the rickety wooden steps to the smaller, cornered back where a flip cup/beer pong tournament is likely to be going on, and if you catch of whiff of the popcorn, don't hesitate in getting a bag.
