The Joyce (as locals refer to it) is a popular watering hole to sip local brews at the bar and groove to tunes by Ulysses S. Jasz, a shout out to speakeasy-style sounds. You'll find Santa Barbara Blondes on tap and on the dance floor, where you can loiter by the fire on cold nights. Barrels of peanuts keep patrons thirsty, and the husks litter the floor. Dart tourneys get rather fierce in the back room, where dart boards, pool tables, and a jukebox keep patrons entertained. Pubs in town don't get more local than this.
