great little bar, good place, great down, good old fashion, great music, great pirates, great jukebox
Don't look Bartenders directly in eyes.
If you look on the Buc's myspace you will find a list of what you should or should not do toward the bartender, such as don't call the bartender by name if you are a stranger, unless you want to be punished by being made to wait longer. It really says that check it out. Perfect example of the attitude of the Buc. "We don't want you here, just your money."
It's a good thing I don't care what bartenders want or don't want. Get me my drink son. Stop being such a Drink-Nazi. Now having said that, a pitcher of Pabst at reasonable prices is well appreciated. And it''s got the Dive-bar thing down, i love that.
So I guess my final verdict is: If you are not to far, go. And if the bartender give you attitude or makes you wait as punishment, go to Lucky Baldwin's across the street.
I love this place. No pretenses. The walls are high in the men's room but they open at the ceiling and you can hear the conversation or borborgymal melodies of the dainty visitors next door. I take chubby at the very recollection.
Whoever books the bands must have one foot in heaven and the other in a Danish Bordello.
Last time I was there a midget tried to hide her elbow up my chute. I bought the house a round.
With that in mind, thumbs up!
No bilge rats here. I went to the Buccaneer with a few friends and was totally excited to find a place on the east side that gives us the warmth of a small bar and the fun of sailing the mid seas. Drinks were perfect and without the swagger of the trendy showoff bartenders found in so many other places these days. A definite plus to the San Gabriel Valley. i will be going back the next time my rowboat heads east of hollywood. Great music too... cant forget that part.
Cant go wrong with Pirates!. Arrggghhh!!! This place rocks!! A great jukebox, great down to earth bartenders, and pirates!! The inside of the Buc is done up in Pirate portraits and black light highlighted pirate paintings scrolling the length of the bar's backdrop... and the drinks are cheap as hell. the crowd is unpretentious and ever-friendly for a bunch of locals.
Pirates? In Sierra Madre?. Aye! A pirate bar hidden in the crevices of the foothills. Booty, indeed! Its are walls adorned with pirates and wenches. Its bartenders pour some stiff ones. And its jukebox rocks. The Buccaneer's patrons are mostly locals, looking for a good place to have a drink. I dont think they realize the treasure that is sitting in their backyard, that is the Buc.
