The Bastard Canteen bar is in Downey, Ca., owned by a Magnificent Bastard. He fought with the city to get the name approved.
As the website states on its About Page –
This establishment is named in respect of those who have served in the finest infantry unit of the United States Marines Corps, 2nd Battalion 4th Marines nicknamed “Magnificent Bastards”, and for the courageous Corpsmen of the United States Navy who care, or have cared for them. Semper Fi.

Nick is opening a second bar in Temecula, Ca. very soon. Since he is near Camp Pendleton, he is going to be extremely successful.
