The Piper Inn looks like a biker bar — and it is. But it’s also an everyone-else bar. You can find your mom, your co-worker and dudes who ride Harleys all enjoying cold brews and house specialties like Chinese-style wings, burgers and carne asada fries. The bar, which opened in 1968, was named for the Piper airplanes that used to land on a dirt airstrip when this part of town was still the country; people even rode horses to the bar. Today it still offers up free birthday drinks, televised sports, an affordable happy hour and delicious bar food, much of it straight from the pages of a classic Chinese takeout menu.
