Established in 1958.

Refurbished in 2022 49'rs Bar History: The Kittinger family purchased the property in 1926 and their Grandfather, Lowell Palen, built a motel on the site. In 1957, Johnny Johnston (also part of the Kittinger family), tore down the motel and had a strip center built. The 49'rs Tavern was born in 1958 and served the students at CSULB. On the walls, you will spy a collection of jerseys of friends that played as DIRTBAGS and others who went on to the Major Leagues. The Tavern is Western in keeping with the 49'rs days and their mascot is the same as CSULB, Prospector Pete. Where Are We Now? 49rs Tavern hopes to restore the strong ties to CSULB and community that the bar once had. We have given new life to the Tavern, hired new staff, and improved the food and drink offerings! Stop in and see what our new vibe is all about! We have 11 TVs to accommodate your favorite teams! We also have the best burger in the LBC. 2 pool tables and an outdoor patio.
