Steve and Dave's is one of my favorite places in Humboldt. Steve and Dave are great, and the bartenders are always fun. The prices are very reasonable. On Arts Alive Eureka they often have a local band and dancing. Four pool tables, a juke box, and they're one of the few places in Humboldt that has a smoking area outdoors where you can take your drink. It tends to draw a very diverse crowd (bright eyed, bushy tailed 21 year olds all the way to grandma and grandpa) but it doesn't attract the usual unsavory group that you might find at some of the other bars.
I really enjoy the Speakeasy! They have a well stocked bar and make wonderful drinks. Their sidecars are the best i've had in years! The bartenders are friendly and knowledgable. I wish it was a tad bigger, but that can't be helped. The atmosphere is cozy and classy and the decor is very unique. It can get pretty crowded on the weekends, but otherwise it's great.
