Abby's bar is an unlicensed, makeshift establishment that locals in a San Diego neighborhood have found is the perfect gathering place to find camaraderie and sanctuary.
The no-nonsense, ex-military owner, Abby, enjoys hosting friends and newcomers alike. But her world is turned upside-down when her new landlord starts finding reasons why the business is illegal. Thankfully, he warms to the idea and agrees to let Abby's stay open as long as some changes are made.
Regulars at the bar include Fred, who loves beer and conversation; Beth, a busy mom who likes to take a few minutes to escape the madness of her home life; Rosie, the bar manager who knows all 162 rules and regulations; and James, the mild-mannered bouncer who hates confrontation.
