Paso Robles
Four unique downtown restaurants serve
up delicious food and delightful cocktails
 From an Irish theme to south- of-the-border flavors, exotic cocktails and a flashback to the 1920s, the Park & Pine Group offers unique dining and drinking experiences
If you have ever been to down- town Paso Robles, chances are you have enjoyed one of the Park & Pine Group’s venues. Each of the four concepts, Pappy McGregor’s, 1122 Speakeasy & Cocktail Lounge, Fish Gaucho and the Cane Tiki Room, offer something truly unique.
The group is owned and man- aged by Donovan Schmit and Troy Larkin, cousins who grew up in the restaurant business. The success of each business is due to attention to detail, focus on unique concepts and superior customer service.
Pappy McGregor’s
Their first venue in Paso Robles, Pappy McGregor’s, opened in 2006 and is a locals’ favorite receiving accolades of “Best Bar/Pub” for eleven straight years. The Irish- themed gastropub offers delicious comfort food, fresh seasonal craft cocktails, local wines, beer on tap, and is home to the best nightlife
in Paso Robles! With plenty of indoor dining space, two full bars, two outdoor patios, kid and dog friendly, it’s easy to see why the locals love Pappy's and why it is a must-visit when in downtown Paso Robles. They have recently added delivery services and a Pub Club for locals offering members points and rewards. Pappy’s is also the perfect venue for celebrations with the back patio or the entire restaurant available for private parties such as rehearsal dinners, wedding recep- tions, birthday parties and more.
Pappy McGregor’s is located at 1122 Pine Street, Paso Robles. Open 7 days a week, kitchen hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m., bar hours are Sun-Thu 11 a.m.-11 p.m. and Fri-Sat 11 a.m.- 2 a.m. For more information visit
1122 Speakeasy & Cocktail Lounge
Behind Pappy’s is the 1122 Speakeasy Cocktail Lounge. This establishment takes guests back to the prohibition era. To enter, guests press a doorbell and are greeted by a host (through a cage in the door) who explains the rules of the speak- easy. The host secures cell phones in a special pouch that is kept in a locked position with the guest and escorts them through the secret door leading to the hidden cocktail lounge. Once inside, a unique cocktail experience engaging all the senses begins. The bartenders pro- vide an elevated cocktail experience with offerings from the classics,
the forgotten, and unique/seasonal cocktails created by the bartending team. Smoked cocktails are a favor- ite and the popular Butter Pecan Old Fashioned is now offered in pre-made bottles to go. Bartending seminars, educational events, and private events are offered through- out the year. They have recently added a Spirits Society membership for discounts on cocktails, access to special events, and other perks.
