Established in 1873, the Clayton Club Saloon truly echoes its Old West heritage with beat-up cowboy boots dangling from the ceiling, wood-plank floors, and patrons who look as if theyve been bellying up to the bar just as long. The Harley-Davidson-clad customers at this establishment dont wait for nightfall to start partying; theyre smoking cigarettes on the dirt patio out back, playing pool, or listening to some of the rock ’n’ roll bands playing in the back of the bar. For this small community of about 11,000, the saloon is one of the few, if only, nighttime entertainment options in the quaint, rustic downtown. And thats just as well, since this secluded town at the end of Ygnacio Valley Road doesnt have its own gas station.
