Owners Bruce Bucz and his partner Shelly established Beach Bums Bevs & Bites in 2018, after being regular visitors to Cayucos. Bucs said, “Life is great here in Cayucos, and we invite you to have fun, relax, and rejuvenate your soul. Our prime location at the beach features stellar outdoor deck seating with ocean and pier views. And inside you’ll experience contemporary, yet intimate seating with the largest TV in Cayucos for viewing your favorite sporting events! Along with our friendly staff, we’re dedicated to hosting a great experience and look forward to introducing you to our favorite new place along the central coast.”

Aside from being an amazing little sports bar, the owners love to have fun theme nights and screen big stuff like the Academy Awards, and The Bachelor, and they have a rose ceremony at the end of the show. Groups come in to have a glass of wine, socialize, and watch a favorite show together. Nibble on something tasty from their menu. Try the Woody Charcuterie Board, Surf’s up & Cali Rivera Panini, or Midwest Farmer’s Daughter Hotdog.

Beach Bums Bevs & Bites frequently has special events- whether it is for a sports game, tv show discussion, musician, comedian or painting class, the intimate environment is always a great place to have a fun evening. The community has embraced this little beach bar and Bucz is currently a member of the Cayucos Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and regularly donates to local nonprofits. He loves to support the Morro Bay Women’s Group ( for battered women support organization) and Cayucos Scholarship Fundraiser.

Bucz said, “We have a great ocean view location where you can get in touch with your soul in a comfortable clean atmosphere and get away from the daily hustle and bustle. Cayucos is unique and Beach Bums offers a laid back alternative to enjoy the weather, ocean, and sunsets while enjoying your favorite glass of wine or beer. The outside deck is a favorite for many visitors during the July 4th Celebration (with coveted paid seating) and Car Show Weekend event. The parade passes right by Beach Bums, and the view for the fireworks show is great from our deck. Take 220 steps from the front door to the sandy Cayucos beach.”
