Restauranteurs John and Paula of Phoenix fame have opened up an informal kitchen in the Sign of the Whale, Point Arena's "hole in the wall bar" on Main Street. This is the only place in Point Arena with a full bar, and it has acquired a wide-spread reputation for its exotic cocktails, as well as your traditional standards. The "pub grub" now available is excellent and reasonably priced. Click here to see a sample menu, but bear in mind that those menu items are just the tip of the iceberg - their daily specials are the big drawing card! Area 51 is open from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Credit cards not accepted. Tuesday through Saturday.
