This nautical themed dive bar is practically a Monterey institution. Usually populated by naval officers and navy personnel, the Trident Room is a friendly waterhole establishment. Pictures of old navy ships and their captains adorn the walls above the booths while beer mugs hang behind the bar with their owners nickname displayed beneath. Pub grub is available and surprisingly delicious with options like salads, meatballs, fresh popped popcorn and more.

Concoctions such as the Portola’s Signature Aged Manhattan, Jacks Oakhear and Peach Basil Gimlet are certain to have calling for round two.
