Attracted by the classic "dive bar" appellation- we bit. Wow. A little seedier than expected.Classic cougar in one corner flirting with a kid her son's age and an old Romeo - comb over- gold chains- waving a $100 bill in front of a young interested woman. Waitress had a beehive. Walk a block to any other place...

The Peso is your typical dive bar(goldmine if you own it) that resides in the sleepy town of Larkspur. The problem is that if you don't want a shot and a beer the bartenders on the weekends don't know how to figure out how to make you a decent cocktail and will tell you outright that they are too busy....

Came here as my girlfriends relative used to drink here all the time about 20 years ago so it was more of a experience than just a quick visit. Nice bartenders, happy hour was 4-6 with a dollar of all draughts and bottles, no outside area though

Every town needs a great dive bar and the Silver Peso does that for Larkspur. It is a quaint little historic town with lovely shops, cafes and 5 star restaurants. Right in the middle of town you see this adorable Bar. The local drinkers show up,daily and drink a lot of the day. Then there are the college students both... More

This is a dive bar - no more and no less - and if you like dive bars you'll probably like the Peso. I do!

Went to this place with a friend and 80s rock was playing. So I had to pair it with a lemon drop and play some pool. Fun night!

Used to go to the Peso all the time back in the day, went back recently, fantastic. We are in our 50's and one of the great things about the Peso is that it is just a neighborhood dive bar. All are welcome.

In a town with only million dollar homes expensive cars you walk into this place and can feel what this place was like 40 or 50 years ago. Actually working class people tattoos stiff free poured drinks actually friendly locals. When ever I get to larkspur to visit family and friends I always pop in there for a few drinks.... More

I LOVE this place! It's a great circular bar full of colorful locals in the heart of quaint downtown Larkspur! Many T.V.s enable you to watch YOUR game. Though not a restaurant of any kind, they DO have freshly popped popcorn for free and chips to purchase. Often on BIG GAME days, locals will organize a pot luck of yummy... More
