Best Dive-Bar Placement (2010)

Rocks

Orange County's most Stepford city needs a place like Rocks: Nestled in an industrial office park next to a bakery that supplies cookie dough for local elementary-school fund-raisers, Rocks draws a fuck-it-all crowd looking for a night it'll hardly remember. It's a dimly lit, black-walled, many-mirrored adult playground: There's shuffleboard, darts, a wide dance floor, raging karaoke and, most crucially, $2 drink deals on Thursdays. We've heard whispers from neighbors about meth deals taking place not too far away; surely that's just myth, but it's the kind of myth Laguna Niguel needs.
