Best Neighborhood Bar/South OC (2009)

Swallow's Inn

South County's most famous bar is a modern-day honky-tonk where the patrons come from a neighborhood that's less geographic than it is psychic. It takes a certain kind of 52-year-old man to go out in public wearing a cowboy hat and a vest but no shirt—and it takes a certain kind of prude to not enjoy a night of cheap beer, fast fiddles and drunken conversation with the aforementioned gritty, graying cowboy.
