The 2 AM Club, 2003.

The 2 AM Club is a popular bar in Mill Valley, California. It is known as being the location of the cover photo of the Huey Lewis and the News' album Sports. Known locally as "The Deuce", it is a popular watering hole.[1]

Formerly known as "The Brown Jug", which was opened by Bill Brown there on the corner of Miller and Montford. Prohibition caused its closure in 1921. It reopened in 1933 with the same name, but became the 2 A.M. Club in about 1940.

The famous "toilet seat" guitar created by Charlie Deal still hangs behind the bar. Charlie holds the patent for this original idea and transformed numerous donated, oak seats into decent musical instruments. He claimed the idea came to him while he was sitting on one.

The band "2AM Club" named themselves after the bar.
