The No Name Bar (The Bar with No Name)
Note: The No Name Bar has at times in its history also been called The Bar with No Name, hence the title above.
Just two blocks from the Ferry, the No Name Bar has been a Sausalito institution for decades, hosting both the notables and the incorrigibles who’ve passed through town. The place has a tradition of welcoming strangers and featuring high quality jazz, blues and rock. A few of the famous names who’ve inhabited the barstools here are Richard Brautigan, Lenny Bruce, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, Sterling Hayden, Jack Kerouac, Charles Mingus and Jonathan Winters.
These days drummer Michael Aragon plays with his band each Friday night, jazz saxophonist Mel Martin appears once each month and Bay Area radio-music-comedy legend Mal Sharpe and his Big Money in Jazz Band perform as well.
