Tin City is one of the fastest growing social scenes on the Central Coast. Though it is technically located in Templeton, many Paso Robles wineries have tasting rooms located in this exciting new spot that also features Barrelhouse Brewing, Tin City Cider, and plenty of delicious food options. Most importantly, SLO Safe Ride has teamed up with The Mark in SLO to host a round-trip shuttle in order to provide a safe, affordable transportation option that bridges San Luis Obispo and North County! At $25 per person, the cost is easily worth avoiding the hassle of driving, parking, or coordinating a carpool service.
About Tin City in Paso Robles
One advantage of choosing Tin City as your afternoon location for a Saturday is the layout of the businesses. Typically, in order to visit multiple Paso Robles wineries, there is a great deal of drive time due to the spread-out nature of the region. Tin City, however, is all located in a consolidated block that is just big enough to have the consistent atmosphere of a street fair! With over four hours of exploration time available on the round-trip pass, there are plenty of opportunities to explore and experience a number of vendors; the diversity of local offerings is really highlighted by the enthusiastic producers of Tin City.
BarrelHouse Brewery & Best Wineries in Paso Robles
With rising stars such as Benson Wines, ONX, Lefondusac, and many more, the wine tasting options can be custom tailored by each guest for their respective palates. If you are looking for fizzy refreshments, Tin City Cider has been redefining dry cider for years as they establish themselves as one of the best tasting rooms to visit in Paso Robles. Barrelhouse Brewing has been a Central Coast mainstay for years, and their primary location is smack dab in the middle of Tin City, offering cornhole competitions, local Live Music, and even up & coming live concerts. Finally, if distilled spirits are your drink, Wine Shine uses recycled wine grapes to make an assortment of liquors including a Hibiscus Gin. Whatever it is you’re looking for, there’s a good chance that someone in Tin City offers it!
Food in Tin City
Aside from piquing your palate with various wines and spirits, Tin City offers rotating food sources that post up and serve their most delicious plates. After all, during a four hour excursion, food is a necessity. Whether you’re craving something sweet or salty, the local options are sure to please – absorb alcohol with Yuca fries and a Cubano Sandwich from the infamous authentic Cuban food truck, Cubanissimo, or delve into Negranti Creamery for Chocolate Malt ice cream, or Salted Brown Sugar. If none of those options appeal to you, Tin City’s first restaurant officially opened their doors in November of 2018, offering delicious Italian delicacy with wood-fired pizza that will make your mouth water. Authentic Italian at an affordable price, can’t go wrong wherever your choose.
One thing we know for sure is that Tin City offers a great time, new experiences, and SLO Safe Ride can get you and your friends there on the cheap. If winding roads and designating drivers to Paso Robles Wineries are too big of a commitment for a weekend outing, the Tin City shuttle is the perfect alternative (nothing against Paso Wine Tasting—we love it and encourage everyone to experience that, too)!
