Barney's Beanery opened its doors in 1920. What began as a destination for westbound travelers on Route 66 (weary travelers could trade in their license plate for a free pint of beer) evolved into an epicenter for arts and culture by the mid-sixties. Among those who made Barney's their home were Janis Joplin, who had her last drink at Barney's before her untimely death, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, who was eventually thrown out one night for urinating on the bar, and in more recent years, Quentin Tarantino, who wrote much of Pulp Fiction at his favorite booth by the bar.
