Barney's Beanery first opened its doors in 1920. One of the final stops on the famous Route 66 (you used to be able to trade your license plates for a pint of beer here), Barney's atmosphere and fair prices have attracted a number of interesting clientele through the years.

The Doors Workshop was just down the street, so Jim Morrison and the Doors used to eat and imbibe here in the late 60's and early 70's. On October 3, 1970, Janis Joplin had her last night of drinking here before she died of a heroin overdose the next day.

Quentin Tarantino wrote the majority of Pulp Fiction at Barney's. As he recalled:
"There's one booth there too that I love. It's a little one, and there's a post there that kind of cuts you off. It helps you concentrate a little bit too."
