It’s definitely one of the liveliest and fun bars in all of Big Bear! Black Diamond Tavern is another of the best bars in Big Bear, especially for their standout Irish coffees and hot toddies. Live music is a staple here, as are their one-of-a-kind cocktails.
Continuing with the theme of quality dive bars in Big Bear, B’s Boathouse is a splendid choice to add to your itinerary. A gorgeous lakefront view of Big Bear Lake greets you, in addition to inexpensive yet strong beers and cocktails. Like several of the bars on this list, they have live music that you can dance to all night long. An extra bonus: this restaurant is also right next to a dog beach, so you can come here after playing with your dog by the lake. There are also pool tables, karaoke nights, and fire pits that you can cozy up next to.
