BREAKING: The Beloved Riptide Bar Catches Fire
Reports just came in that the beloved honky-tonk by the beach just caught fire. It’s a real shame, that’s a great Sunset bar, built in 1941. Stuart’s taken at least two different pubcrawls there. We love the Riptide, it was the only real music venue in the area. Word is it was a 7 alarm fire (correction: 2 alarm fire), and the Riptide is no more…
We will post more information as we get it.
Thank you Suganthi for tipping us to the tragedy
Richie Nakano (@linecook) previously of Hapa Raman says he stopped near there to get coffee and talked to a fireman who said that the fire was in the wall and therefor not catastrophic!
Fire is out but looks like extensive damage to Riptide. Investigators are looking into cause.
